With the main bill being held up in the Senate, Democrats are advancing the essence of the Equality Act which effectively criminalizes Christianity through multiple bills.
By embedding key components of the Equality Act in several pieces of must-pass legislation, the main points of the Act could soon become law. These bills could impact churches, religious organizations, and Christian schools -- and anyone who dares to stand for traditional ideals of male and female.
Here are some of the bills being used in this SNEAK ATTACK strategy:
- Do No Harm Act (HR 1450) which guts the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in favor of protections for LGBT individuals
- Refund Equality Act (HR 3234, S 1564) which funnels millions to same-sex couples
- Customer Non-Discrimination Act (HR 2587) makes every public restroom open to same-sex or transgender individuals, while also gutting RFRA
- Stronger Abuse Prevention And Treatment Act (HR 2480) which guts parental rights and empowers adolescents to choose and pursue their gender without parental knowledge or consent.
+ + These bills specifically undermine religious liberties!
These SNEAK ATTACK bills follow a similar pattern to the full Equality Act legislation -- they specifically target people of faith and gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. By doing so, they put people of faith at risk by removing any religious exemption as it relates to issues of sexual orientation or gender identity (SOGI) the workplace, the school, and public places.
The ACLU has gone so far as to equate religious freedom as nothing more than an excuse to discriminate. They say religious exemptions are being "used to license discrimination." This is outrageous.
+ + Take action...
To date, these SNEAK ATTACK bills have received almost no media coverage. But many of the sneak attack items have been attached to "must-pass" legislation and thus will slip through unaware unless citizens take action!
Grassfire has created an EQUALITY ACT SNEAK ATTACK FAXFIRE to direct your message to the 12 GOP Senators being targeted by LGBT extremists. We want to see 20,000 faxes delivered to the Senate in the next 10 days while members of Congress launch their fall legislative agenda.
If possible, please select the "Bigger Impact" Level Two faxes and reach EVERY GOP SENATOR TODAY!
+ + Sneak Attack gives men the right to women's bathrooms
The Customer Non-Discrimination Act is particularly pernicious in that it amends the Civil Rights Act to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity." As the LGBT organization Human Rights Campaign explains, this bill goes even further by redefining "public spaces" to include "retail stores, services such as banks and legal services, healthcare providers, and transportation services." Basically, every public space bathroom would be open to transgendered individuals, and healthcare providers would be required to comply.
Thanks for taking action!
