With the Senate back in session, Grassfire reached out to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) office this week. We wanted to know if Democrats had given Republican leadership any idea of when a floor vote will occur on the so-called Equality Act (H.R.5). Yesterday afternoon, we received this terse, two-word reply:
Honestly, we don't know if that's good or bad news. Have Senate Democrats put the anti-faith, pro-LGBTQ bill on the legislative "back burner"? Or are they going to hold a surprise vote that GOP Senators and conservative Americans aren't ready for or prepared to fight?
Shortly after H.R.5 passed the House by a 224-206 margin in late February, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) invoked the Upper Chamber's "Rule 14," which opens the door for a vote on it -- at any time! Reportedly, Schumer could even call for a voice vote on the "Equality" Act to avoid the 60-vote threshold usually required for a bill to pass the Senate.
If you oppose the radical and dangerous legislation, now is NOT the time to drop your guard, lose interest or stop fighting this unprecedented attack on religious freedom.
This anti-faith, pro-LGBTQ bill is an attempt by radical Democrats, the Unhinged Left and the "woke mob" to force people of faith to accept their extreme, pro-transgender, pro-homosexual agenda. That's why Grassfire is empowering our team members to take a bold stand to DEFEND religious liberty and FIGHT the "Equality" Act.

The number of people who could be harmed by the so-called Equality Act is staggering. For months, Grassfire has been warning how it threatens the constitutional rights of women, girls, medical professionals, foster children, orphans, the unborn and people of faith. If signed into law, H.R.5 could also have devastating economic consequences on pro-faith Americans by limiting employment opportunities and access to commercial bank loans.
The "Equality" Act insists that pro-faith Americans CANNOT disagree with an extreme, far-left, pro-LGBTQ agenda without severe personal and financial implications. It threatens to invalidate "The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993" -- a crucial law passed to guarantee and protect the sincerely held beliefs of Christians and other people of faith. H.R.5 sacrifices religious liberty on the "altar" of political correctness!
The radical Left wants to punish anyone who refuses to bow to their pro-homosexual, pro-transgender orthodoxy. That makes the Equality Act one of the GREATEST THREATS to religious liberty that Americans have ever faced. If you oppose this anti-faith, anti-woman, anti-child and anti-science legislation, make your voice heard. Send your personalized "Stop The 'Equality' Act!" message to Senators now!
The "Equality" Act needs 60 votes to pass the Senate. That means, 10 GOP Senators MUST side with Democrats and vote "YES" for H.R.5 to become law. If you oppose this anti-faith, anti-woman, anti-child and anti-science bill, go here to make your voice heard!

P.S. If signed into law, the misnamed Equality Act will impact churches, Christian schools and universities, religious organizations (including adoption and foster-care providers) and faith-based businesses. Medical professionals could be forced to choose between breaking the law or violating their faith. Also, the bill would harm women and girls by erasing significant safety, privacy and equality rights, while defending abortion under the guise of "sex discrimination."
