We are coming up on the last chance for you to sign the petition and count your name towards the referendum against AB 1266, the law that will allow public school students to choose the bathroom, locker room, and sports team of their choice – regardless of their gender.  If this referendum doesn’t reach the needed number of signatures, students will be able to choose which gender they most identify with and use the corresponding facilities – meaning less privacy for all students.  Imagine a boy who says he identifies as a girl sharing a locker room with the rest of the teenage girls!  Read More

ACLU and Lesbian Wedding Couple Lodges Complaint Against Minister

in Advocates in Action, Blog, Cases, Marriage 0 Comments

One of our new clients, The Clergy Network, is a marketplace ministry operated by a husband and wife team, Brian and Linda Trott, both are ordained wedding handsministers with doctorates in divinity. They officiate weddings, funerals and other special occasions. The Clergy Network provides referral services to like-minded ministers who view their profession as an opportunity to share their Christian faith by officiating special occasions in the marketplace.

As an added benefit to wedding couples, Brian is authorized to issue a limited number of confidential marriage licenses to couples on behalf of the County of Orange, California.

The Clergy Network was recently contacted by a woman looking for someone to issue a confidential marriage license and to officiate her wedding.  Brian had no additional confidential marriage licenses that he could issue at the time and was already booked for the woman’s wedding day.

The Clergy Network referred the woman to another minister who could perform the services required on the date requested. The woman refused the referral; she said that she did not want a “Hispanic” minister and wanted Linda Trott to conduct the ceremony. She then disclosed that she would be marrying a female. It was apparent to Linda that this was a “set-up” following the reversal of Proposition 8.

Take Action on the Co-ed Bathroom Bill TODAY!

Recently, Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1266 into law in California. This law allows public school students to choose whichever athletic team they want to be on – no matter their gender, they can choose to be on the men’s or women’s team. Further, it allows public school students to choose the restrooms, showers and locker rooms of their choice – male or female.

AB 1266 contains no rules, standards or guidelines.  There is no parental involvement required, nor a professional or medical assessment. All a student has to do under this law is claim a “gender identity” of the opposite sex.  There is also no consideration for the interests of all students that would be affected.  Privacy and security concerns of students are ignored.

     We are taking action with a coalition of organizations to overturn the co-ed bathroom law! For more information, go toprivacyforallstudents.comRead More
