California’s New Governor the First to Advocate for “Gay” Marriage
California elected Democrat Gavin Newsom as governor last week, reports the Sacramento Bee.
Newsom made news as the mayor of San Francisco for introducing homosexual marriage to the state and to the nation. In 2004, he directed the San Francisco county clerk to begin issuing marriage licenses to men living with men and women living with women in unnatural relations with one another.
The U.S. Supreme Court finally approved of his policy in 2015. During the campaign, Gavin Newsom advocated for a permanent state grant to Planned Parenthood to the tune of $100 million, reports Mercury News.
California Receives Worst Fires in History, for Second Year in a Row
Just a few days after this election, God sent the worst fire in California’s history.
So far, the Camp Fire has taken out 6,700 structures throughout 117,000 acres in Northern California. The fire virtually annihilated the town of Paradise, resulting in 29 fatalities, and another 228 people missing. In an interview with The Mercury News, an 87-year-old resident, Beverly Fillmore, said she thought “this must be what Hell’s going to be.”
The Ventura Fire has burned 85,000 acres so far, and another 179 structures (including the home of Miley Cyrus). In God’s providence, the winds are whipping up to 40-60 mph in Los Angeles and Ventura counties through Tuesday.
The two most destructive fires in California history have occurred in 2017 and 2018.
Jude 1 warns of the eternal fires: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 1:7)
Scotland Pushes Radical Sexual Perversion on All School Kids
Scotland will be the first nation in the world to mandate indoctrination for all school children in sexual perversion — to include the unnatural relations of men with men, and women with women.
According to The Guardian report, “There will be no exemptions or opt-outs to the policy, which will embed LGBTI-inclusive education across the curriculum and across subjects.”
By the way, the I in the LGBTI acronym, stands for “intersex” which is a person who is born with a combination of male and female biological characteristics.

President Donald Trump was in France yesterday at an American cemetery outside of Paris, reports ABC News.
For Veteran’s Day, the president was commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I Armistice Day in which hostilities ceased on the Western Front of the War. President Trump acknowledged the bravery of the men who fought and gave their lives for Western Freedoms.
“Great, great warriors they are, who gave everything for family, country, God, and freedom. Through rain, hail, snow, mud, poisonous gas, bullets, and mortar, they held the line and pushed onward to victory. It was a great, great victory; a costly victory, but a great victory.”
