The House of Representatives is set to vote TODAY on the misnamed "Equality" Act. The radical, pro-LGBTQ bill seeks to give legal protection to an extreme homosexual and transgender agenda at the expense of women and people of faith. H.R.5 also blurs the lines between biological sex and chosen gender.
Nearly 30 times, the bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by inserting the words "including sexual orientation and gender identity" in an attempt to equate those terms with a person's sex at birth. So much for Democrats being "the party of science."
What's worse is that, if people of faith don't agree with or follow the legislation's newly defined views of sex and sexuality, their sincerely held beliefs potentially put them on the wrong side of the law. The "Equality" Act renders current religious-liberty protection invalid. This is from page 25 of the bill:
"The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (42 U.S.C. 2000bb et seq.) shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under, a covered title, or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title."
In other words, the so-called "Equality" Act insists that pro-faith Americans CANNOT disagree with the radical Democrats' and Unhinged Left's extreme, pro-LGBTQ agenda. That's why this afternoon's vote is so crucial!
Democrats tried to pass this highly controversial legislation in 2019 -- and failed. But H.R.5 could pass if Republicans in the House and Senate don't take a stand.

The so-called "Equality" Act is one of the greatest threats to religious freedom we have ever seen. The bill impacts churches, religious organizations, Christian businesses and Christian schools by IMPOSING a radical pro-LGBTQ, pro-transgender agenda.
H.R.5 actually amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and elevates gender identity to a protected status. The bill also harms women and girls by rewriting civil-rights law to include "sexual orientation and gender identity" as protected classes. The "Equality" Act would erase significant safety, privacy and equality rights for women and girls. That's simply unacceptable!
Grassfire representatives are on track to hand-deliver more than 23,000 "Stop The 'Equality' Act!" petitions to House Republican leaders BEFORE this afternoon's expected vote. You can increase the impact of that signature delivery by contacting key GOP Representatives on Capitol Hill now!
