* Christian Leaders Conference Call: led to this conclusion offered by one prominent attorney regarding Colorado's anti-Christian censorship law SB200: "I do believe that the Bible is banned, under the plain language of this new statute." The initial fight to oppose SB200 includes:

1. Holding a press conference soon
2. Filing a facial challenge against SB200
3. Drafting an "Illegal Flyer" for leaders to distribute
4. Considering a Get Rid-a-Ritter possible recall effort
5. Confirming the report that a referendum response is not an option: confirmed
6. Reminding ministries to use the final version of SB200 (see legislative history)
7. Showing that the church exemption marginalizes Christians implying that bigots belong in church
8. Showing that SB200 outrageously turns being a pastor into an affirmative defense
9. Primary focus: SB200 is government censorship of Christian teaching against co-habitation and immorality
    Second: unacceptable forced hiring of and renting to those cohabitating and those practicing a homosexual lifestyle
    Third: the bathroom issue is real, that male predators, etc., will attempt to use this law to enter women's bathrooms, but sadly, this real threat is one of the least of the Act's wicked influences

Note: state legislators intentionally denied citizens the ability to repeal SB200 at the ballot by including the Section 41 Safety Clause in that the Colorado Secretary of State's Referendum Guidelines say, "A referendum petition may not be filed... against legislative acts that contain a 'safety clause' declaring that the act is 'necessary for the immediate preservation of public peace, health, or safety.'"
