Southern California Pastor Cursed Out at State Capitol for Opposing SB1146

California’s attack on Religious Liberties continues. Senate Bill 1146 continues to generate controversy and even vile, vulgar behavior from members of the California State Assembly staff at the State Capitol.

Pastor Marc T. Little, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel for Faithful Central Bible Church a large predominantly African-American church located in Inglewood California along with other members of the clergy from throughout the state attended hearings concerning SB 1146 in Sacramento’s State Capitol last week.

Pastor Little submitted a letter in opposition to the controversial Bill to the office of his state Assemblymen, Assemblyman Reginald Jones-Sawyer’s office in Sacramento, CA. He subsequently received a vulgar profanity-laced voicemail message from a Joey Hill, chief of staff for the assemblymen. SB 1146 impinges on American citizens 1st Amendment rights as it restricts religious freedoms in Religious institutions of higher learning as in Colleges, Universities, and Seminaries.

Pastor Little’s original opposition letter to Senate Bill 1146 is provided below. And his comments in response to the vulgar voicemail are in attachment as an MP3 file along with the original voicemail message from Joey Hill though it has been edited to block the profanity.


According to “SB 1146, was introduced by Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens). It seeks to eliminate the current religious exemption in California that fully protects the freedom of California’s faith-based colleges and universities to operate in ways that are consistent with their religious missions and faith tenets. The provisions of the proposed bill represent a dramatic narrowing of religious freedom in California. It would mean faith-based institutions would no longer be able to determine for themselves the scope of their religious convictions as applied in student conduct policies, housing, and restroom/locker facilities, and other matters of religious expression and practical campus life. Though the free exercise of religion is guaranteed by both the U.S. and California Constitutions, SB 1146 would make religious institutions like Biola vulnerable to anti-discrimination lawsuits and unprecedented government policing.”

“This bill, if it became law, would diminish religious liberty in California higher education and [set precedence nationally]. It would unfairly harm faith-based institutions, and it would weaken the rich educational diversity of the state.”

Pastor Little called for the immediate apology by Assemblyman Jones-Sawyer and the immediate resignation of Mr. Hill.  “No one should ever be subjected to such disrespect by the staff of a public official no matter the disagreement,” He states.

The Christian community must understand the stakes are very high, and the liberal progressive agenda will stop at nothing in their quest to restrict religious freedoms in California and throughout the nation. The goal is to disempower the church and drive it underground.  For a state assemblymen’s chief of staff to feel so emboldened as to literally call a pastor and curse him shows the arrogance exhibited in their feeling that there will be little pushback from the church.  As for me, I agree with Pastor Little. Mr. Hill should resign. And I think it high time the church flexed its collective spiritual muscle and fully stood up. It’s time to turn over some tables……………
