Christianity Today published an important online article yesterday about the so-called Equality Act (H.R.5). It clearly outlines why the controversial, anti-faith, pro-LGBTQ legislation is NOT about equality. Rather, the controversial bill seeks to eliminate sexual differences and redefine gender. Dr. David Dockery, President of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, wrote:
The Equality Act, which has an appealing name, does not actually support equality for everyone. To the contrary, it targets people of faith for whom human sexuality is not merely a matter of personal opinion. ... The Equality Act would become the first major piece of legislation in the history of the United States to exclude protections for religious freedom. ... In fact, it would discriminate against people of faith by adversely affecting religious schools, benevolence organizations, women’s sports, sex specific facilities, and conscience rights.
Since the first time this dangerous legislation was introduced in 2019, Grassfire has been sounding the alarm about its threat to religious liberty and people of faith. We've also written extensively about how the "Equality" Act would harm women, girls, at-risk children and the unborn.

H.R.5 insists that pro-faith Americans CANNOT disagree with the radical Democrats' and Unhinged Left's extreme pro-LGBTQ agenda. 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.
This legislation poses one of the greatest threats to religious freedom America has ever seen. If passed, the "Equality" Act would impact churches, faith-based organizations (including adoption and foster-care providers), and Christian businesses, as well as Christian schools and universities. The bill would also harm women and girls by erasing significant safety, privacy and equality rights, while also defending abortion under the guise of "sex discrimination."

H.R.5 has already passed the House, but the bill needs 60 votes to pass the Senate. That means, 10 GOP Senators must side with Democrats and vote "YES" for the "Equality" Act to become law. If Republicans stand firm and stay united this anti-faith, anti-woman and anti-child legislation WILL NOT PASS!
Millions of Americans want the Senate to defeat this extreme, pro-LGBTQ bill in defense of religious liberty; to ensure a level playing field for women's and girls' sports; to validate the scientific difference between sex at birth and chosen gender; and to protect born and unborn children.
