The Democrat-led House of Representatives has re-introduced the so-called "Equality Act." The highly controversial bill pushes a radical LGBT agenda that harms women and effectively criminalizes Christianity. It's expected to be voted on in the House THIS WEEK!
The radical legislation is NOT about "equality." Its goal is to strip away religious liberties and put people of faith on the wrong side of the law. Breitbart Politics reports that H.R.5 "would eliminate the legal recognition of male and female sex, cater to gender ideology, and designate protection for the unborn as 'pregnancy' discrimination."
In the Spring of 2019, Grassfire warned Americans this would happen. We told you how the unconstitutional and wrongly named "Equality Act" is a threat to women and Christians across the country. On June 8, 2019, we specifically noted that a Joe Biden administration would immediately begin pushing their LGBTQ agenda down the throats of Christian Americans. Here's what Grassfire wrote more than 18 months ago:
This week, leading Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden announced his TOP PRIORITY if elected President. And Christians beware!
Biden not only threw his full support behind the Equality Act, he went so far as to say passing the act would be "the first thing I do."
So the "first thing" Joe Biden would do would be to push legislation that effectively criminalizes Christianity. It would force doctors and religious hospitals to perform sex-change operations, allow kids to choose the "gender identity" and even medically change their bodies without parental consent, allow men to access women's bathrooms and force churches to host gay weddings and hire and accommodate every possible gender identity. And it will ruin women's sports!
That's EXACTLY what has happened! On Day 1 of the Biden regime, the Commander-in-Thief issued an executive order entitled, "Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation." Almost instantly, the new administration began pushing radical, transgender ideology at the expense of biological women. According to National Review:
It would more accurately be called "Promoting and Enforcing Transgender Activism." ... Here, Biden is simply picking up where President Obama left off. But where Obama introduced his overreaching gender-identity policies by the backdoor ... Biden is more explicitly laying out his administration’s plans for instituting transgender ideology in every sphere of life from schools, locker rooms, and sports teams, to health care and homeless shelters.
This past Friday, Mr. Biden released a statement applauding Democrats, specifically the "Congressional Equality Caucus," for re-introducing the highly controversial and un-American "Equality Act." The White House press release read, in part:
I urge Congress to swiftly pass this historic legislation. Every person should be treated with dignity and respect, and this bill represents a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all.
Again, the House of Representatives are scheduled to vote THIS WEEK on this blatant attack against the rights of American women and Christians. The bill does not exempt churches, religious organizations, or Christian schools. In fact, this hostile new bill specifically forbids citizens or organizations from raising a religious free-exercise claim as a defense against it!
