Dem Lawmaker Wants to Outlaw Church Youth Groups, Bible Studies

For the first time in American history, legislation has been introduced that would make it a crime to invite a child to a Bible study or church youth group.

Far-Left Nebraska State Sen. Megan Hunt (D) put forth the radical amendment Friday as a reaction to Republicans wanting to protect children from all-ages drag shows.

Hunt’s amendment would ban minors from attending “religious indoctrination camp,” defined as “camp, vacation Bible study, retreat, lock-in, or convention held by a church, youth group, or religious organization for the purpose of indoctrinating children with a specific set of religious beliefs.”

It would also ban anyone under 21 years old from Communion that contains wine.

“No individual under nineteen years of age shall be present at a religious indoctrination camp. Any person nineteen years of age or older who knowingly brings an individual under nineteen years of age to a religious indoctrination camp shall be guilty of a Class I misdemeanor,” Hunt’s amendment states. “No individual under twenty-one years of age shall be present at a religious indoctrination camp if alcoholic liquor is being served at such location, regardless if such alcoholic liquor is being served as part of a religious ceremony.”

The justification for the ban, according to Hunt’s legislation, is “a well-documented history of indoctrination and sexual abuse perpetrated by religious leaders and clergy people upon children. Abusers within churches and other religious institutions often use events like church or youth-group-sponsored camps and retreats to earn children’s trust and gain unsupervised access to such children in order to commit such abuse.”

Hunt said she did it just to “make a point” in opposition to a Republican-backed bill that would bar young children from attending adult-themed drag shows and penalize adults who take them, but national radio host Todd Starnes isn’t buying it.

“What if the Democrats had a majority in Nebraska?” Starnes asked. “What kind of a person goes out there and says, ‘I’m going to make a point here. We’re going to ban Christianity.'”

“I think we ought to take Senator Hunt at her word, and I wonder if we’re going to start seeing these kinds of moves in other state houses throughout the nation.”
