We have just been alerted to a MASSIVE GROUND STRATEGY that is now underway to pass one of the most dangerous threats to religious liberties and family ever to be proposed in Congress.
The Human Rights Campaign is mounting an aggressive campaign called "Month Of Action" with dozens of events in not less than 14 states. With Congress returning from a two-week recess next week AND A VOTE ON THE EQUALITY ACT EXPECTED WITHIN 30 DAYS, this is a critical time to let your voice be heard.
Grassfire is giving citizens who oppose this bill an opportunity to have their voices heard and WILL BE DELIVERING PETITIONS NEXT TUESDAY. If you oppose the anti-faith Equality Act and want your name included in this petition, here's what you need to do...
(We included the complete petition language at the end of this message.)
+ + "Most invasive threat to religious liberty ever proposed"
This bill is not about "equality." It is about stripping away religious liberties and putting people of faith on the wrong side of the law! It 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!
Andrew Walker, Senior Fellow at the Ethics And Religious Liberty Commission, writes that this bill "represents the most invasive threat to religious liberty ever proposed in America." He says implementation of the Equality Act would "have sweeping effects on religious liberty" and would be "chilling."
Walker further explains:
"By codifying the ideas that (1) sexuality has no core ethical limits other than consent, and that (2) male and female definitions are psychologically based, rather than biologically based, the Equality Act must be interpreted as an assault on Christian institutions and especially on parental rights—since public education will be transformed to follow the law’s provisions."
Thanks for taking action!

THE PETITION STATES:
I oppose the wrongly-named "Equality Act" -- a very dangerous bill that pushes a radical LGBT agenda while essentially criminalizing Christian beliefs. This bill would strip away religious liberties and put people of faith on the wrong side of the law. It also would force our churches and Christian businesses and schools to conform to the radical LGBT agenda. I urge you to oppose the so-called Equality Act.
