(CNSNews.com) -- A Christian student senator at the University of California-Berkeley is facing pressure from her peers to resign from the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC), the school’s officially recognized student organization, because she abstained from an Oct. 31 vote about the legal definition of gender.

Isabella Chow, a junior, abstained from an ASUC resolution that opposed the “Trump administration’s proposed definition of sex under Title IX.”
...
“I cannot vote for this bill without compromising my values and my responsibility to the community that elected me to represent them,” Chow wrote in a statement on Facebook. “As a Christian, I personally do believe that certain acts and lifestyles conflict with what is good, right, and true. I believe that God created male and female at the beginning of time, and designed sex for marriage between one man and one woman.”

Many of Chow’s peers were angered by her refusal to vote in favor of the resolution. The Queer Alliance Resource Center at U.C. Berkeley created a petition calling for her resignation. CalTV released a statement condemning her. Her own political party, Student Action, disaffiliated with her.

U.C. Berkeley Student Senator Told to Resign After Abstaining From Pro-LGBTQ Vote

Isabella Chow did not agree with some clauses in the bill because she would have had to promote the pro-LGBTO lifestyle, and because she holds her own religious beliefs, and doesn't think she should be forced to "promote pro-LGBTO lifestyle." Because she made her own decision on what to believe this student Senator was labeled "homophobic" and "transphobic," and has been "demanded to resign" for holding her own beliefs.

This is what the U.S. has been turned into, and it is not the only case in which Christians are being attacked meanwhile people of other religions who hold similar, or worse beliefs about the LGBTO lifestyle are being given a green light.

Here is another case in which two Christian film makers are being forced to film same sex weddings, even though they disagree with this lifestyle.

Christ ian Filmmakers Ask Appeals Court to Stop Minnesota From Forcing Them to Film Gay Weddings

Are Muslims who don't agree with the LGBTO lifestyle being forced like this? As far as i know they are not, but Christians are being attacked left and right. This is not about "hatred," but rather the fact that people have a right to agree or disagree with other people's lifestyles.

Should left-wingers be forced to uphold Christian beliefs? No, and neither should Christians be forced to uphold LGBTO beliefs. People have a right to their own opinion, and having your own opinion does not equal to "hatred."

Damned if you do, damned if you don't think like them.

I am sooooo glad I dropped out of college and started learning and working in a technical trade.

This has been coming for quite some time.

You can't just accept an LGBTQ lifestyle.

You now have to endorse it.

Although I fall into the LGBTQ category, I've never considered it part of my identity or supported it as a movement for reasons exactly like this. They aren't about acceptance and haven't been for a long while. Why can't we add an S in there for straight, too? You know... Just be people...

ETA: This is obviously just an attack on Christianity... California doesn't allow that, and it's pretty obvious.

Blah blah blah, this # is getting old.

Freedom of religion, only for the "right" religions.

Where the hell is that solar flare we all need to distill down the real obstacles that humans were designed to overcome. We obviously weren't designed to analyze any sort of nuanced logic. So let's go back to putting meat on the fire and babies in women....like the rest of the animals.

She should be applauded for standing up for HER personal values, as opposed to caving under the pressure of ridiculous hypocrites and their undeveloped and chaotic beliefs.

Progressives...can’t live with them, can’t talk sense to them.

American’t: From Midterms to End Times
By Selwyn Duke


the United States is at what some call a tipping point, what others may call a Fourth Turning? Whatever you call it, the American republic is in its last days. This is too scary for many to contemplate, but there’s something far scarier:

The so-called Left, ever violent since its French Revolution birth and as power hungry as ever, wholly controls the culture: the media, mainstream and social; academia; and entertainment. This means it controls long-term politics, since the latter is downstream of culture.

Trump’s 2016 victory will not MAGA; it was merely a stay of execution, a prolonging of the inevitable.

But this isn’t your grandfather’s Democrat Party. Voters this time empowered socialistic to socialist to closet-communist, sexual devolutionary, rabble-rousing, low-I.Q., no virtue, ignorant freaks who often encourage political violence by their Antifa-Brownshirt useful idiots. So it’s not your great-grandfather’s America, either.

“The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next,” the apocryphal saying goes. Today’s brainwashing, not just by academia but also media and entertainment, is intense. Moreover, we can’t MAGA unless we MAMA — Make America Moral Again. As Ben Franklin put it, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.

Anyone who wants or tries to be a "position" at anything should resign, period. I don't care about views or programming or tribal mentality or fake beliefs that these actors then try to express as real. Just stop already. Anyone aspiring to be something. STOP. ENOUGH.

With all of those letters, LGBT.... where is their inclusion for the Heterosexuals.

Where is the inclusion for the other 97% of humanity.

Currently, according to HuffPo, it is LGBTQQIP2SAA.

I think it should be HLGBTQQIP2SAA so we are all included.

Until then, I will hold on to my old values which I probably can't even write down on this conspiracy forum without having my post vanish into electron heaven.

Such has become Western Society.

But you know this isn't realistic in any kind of way. I understand your frustrations though.

So you believe anyone who has differing opinions to yourself, is "going backwards" and needs to be silenced/removed from a position of a power. How very fascist of you.

The student council represents the students.

Not their personal beliefs.

She's representing the people who voted for her to represent them. Typically that'd be because those people agree with her personal beliefs.

Exactly this.

“Think how we think or we’ll attack, silence you and marginalise you”. The very definition of fascism.

Also the standpoint of the ‘left’.

Regardless of what the leftists are told by cnn,
Having your own opinion does NOT equal ‘hatred’!

Religion has no business in politics.

Period!
