It's a different time in America... a time when one political party and viewpoint is now openly attacking people of faith. The Equality Act is just one clear example.
This bill -- rushed through the House earlier this month -- would force Christian doctors and Christian hospitals and Christian parents to SUBMIT to the radical same-sex mantra. Hospitals would be required to affirm the gender identity of teenagers. Doctors could be charged with discrimination if they upheld that novel (biological) idea that boys are boys and girls are girls. Christian parents who believe what the Bible says about human sexuality could be charged with abuse for resisting State efforts to help their kids discover their chosen gender identity.Read more
We did some digging...
And we found the GOP Senators that the LGBT activists are targeting to get the Equality Act passed through the Senate...
These 12 GOP Senators are on the LGBT SHORT LIST -- and there's enough of them to get this bill passed.
As of this morning, Grassfire has gathered just under 15,000 petitions to STOP THE EQUALITY ACT. As soon as we reach 20,000, we will start HAND-DELIVERING petitions to these vulnerable GOP Senators.
If you oppose the anti-faith Equality Act and want your name included in this petition, here's what you need to do...Read more
If there was ever any question in your mind that Democrats have come off the rails regarding abortion, there won't be any doubt for long.
As reported by CBS News, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, declared that anti-abortion laws are "against the Christian faith." And here is her problematic reasoning...
"'If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenants of our faith is free will. One of the tenants of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort.'"Read more
Pro-LGBT leaders say the language in the Equality Act passed by the House of Representatives goes too far and would "crush" conscientious objectors. Lawmakers in the U.S. Senate are now being pressured to pass the overreaching bill.
In an interview with the National Review, Douglas Laycock, a law professor at the University of Virginia and "a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage" says he opposes the Equality Act "because it would 'crush' conscientious objectors."
"It goes very far to stamp out religious exemptions... This is not a good-faith attempt to reconcile competing interests. It is an attempt by one side to grab all the disputed territory and to crush the other side."Read more
URGENT GRASSFIRE CITIZEN ALERT: After passing in the House of Representatives, the Equality Act now goes to the U.S. Senate as S.788. The pressure for passage in the Senate is mounting.
In case you missed the news that the far-Left media is calling "historic," the Pelosi-led House of Representatives along with eight Republicans passed the erroneously named "Equality Act" by a vote of 236-173.
The Equality Act is now headed to the U.S. Senate. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) and other pro-LGBT Senators are already pressuring Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to hold a Senate vote on the Act.Read more
URGENT GRASSFIRE CITIZEN ALERT:
Anti-Faith "Equality Act" Betrays Christian Citizens. Action Needed!
The Pelosi-led, Democrat-controlled House of Representatives along with eight Republicans undermined America's long-held tenets of religious freedom and freedom of speech by passing the erroneously named "Equality Act" by a vote of 236-173.
The so-called "Equality Act" rewrites the Civil Liberties Act of 1964 by elevating "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to a protected status.
The Act betrays America's believers and effectively criminalizes Christianity by putting us in legal and civil jeopardy for standing against the LGBTQ agenda. It nullifies the Religious Freedom Restoration Act forcing Christians to violate their sincerely held beliefs. 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!
The Act also shatters some of the rights and protections for women. It destroys the distinctions between male and female. It empowers men who identify as a woman to compete against women in sporting events. It forces biological women to share bathrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities with transgenders.Read more
Battle lines are being drawn over newly-enacted strict abortion laws in states like Alabama, Georgia and Ohio that could ultimately challenge Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.
On Wednesday evening, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey (R) signed into law the most pro-life measure enacted since Roe v. Wade. The "Human Life Protection Act" punishes doctors who perform abortions except when "abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk" to the mother. No exceptions were included for rape and incest, which further irked pro-abortion stalwarts.
Right now, Planned Parenthood is reportedly drafting a lawsuit to challenge the Alabama law. The nation's largest abortion provider is vowing to "fight this dangerous abortion ban every step of the way."Read more
