Breitbart: President Joe Biden released a statement Friday urging Congress to “swiftly pass” the Equality Act, a bill that would eliminate the legal recognition of male and female sex, cater to gender ideology, and designate protection for the unborn as “pregnancy” discrimination.
The House is expected to vote on the Equality Act, H.R. 5, next week. The legislation, which would rewrite civil rights law to include “sexual orientation and gender identity” as protected classes, would likely upend the national culture as Americans have known it.
It sacrifices the equality, safety, and privacy of women, while privileging men who identify as women: If this bill becomes law, they’d have a civil right to spend the night in a battered women’s shelter, disrobe in a women’s locker room, and compete on a women’s sports team—even children at K-12 public schools.
Religious institutions fare no better. Religious schools, adoption agencies, and other charities would face federal sanction for operating according to basic biology and mainstream Biblical teaching on sex and marriage. Outrageously, this act exempts itself from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Pope Francis would be treated as the legal equivalent of a Jim Crow segregationist.
Ryan T. Anderson (Ph.D, Heritage Foundation) noted that any questioning of transgender medical treatments and surgeries would be labeled “discrimination” if the Equality Act becomes law.
“And any refusal to support or provide abortions would now be treated as ‘pregnancy’ discrimination,” he continued. “And no one—not even the act’s sponsors—can tell us what would be required under the act to avoid committing ‘discrimination’ in the case of ‘non-binary’ gender identities.” Read More …
Opinion: “This is a frontal assault on religious liberty that we have not seen in the history of our nation. Not only does it contain no exemptions for religious organizations for religious individuals like many of these laws in the past have done, it actually strips us of our constitutionally protected rights.” Greg Baylor from the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) tells CBN News.

It’s Not The Equality Act, It’s The Homosexual Supremacy Act
The Equality Act pushes special rights for non-normative sexual behavior to the top of the pyramid, and requires that anytime there is a conflict between sexual normalcy and the radical sexuality of the LGBT lobby, radical and extremist sexuality is guaranteed to win.
There is no religious exemption in this bill. In fact, any kind of provision for religious liberty is specifically prohibited.
If you have a problem with …
- Forcing doctors in Christian hospitals to perform abortions
- Forcing doctors in Christian hospitals to perform gender reassignment surgeries
- Forcing adoption agencies to place children in gay households
- Forcing churches to hire LGBT staff
- Forcing religious institutions to allow patrons to use the bathroom of their choice
… you are likely a Christian and you will have no say or rights on the matter with the passage of H.R.5 — Equality Act.
“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.” Daniel 7:7
