They call it the federal Equality Act.  Just in its words you know it’s got to be about anything but equality.  That’s how it is in America.  You must actually read between the headlines to find the reality.

The federal Equality Act, otherwise known as H.R.5, seeks to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – which is a huge deal.  It includes protections for an individual’s perceived sex, “sexual orientation,” or “gender identity.”  This is the same kind of law that was created by Congress in 1964 to ensure constitutional rights for African Americans.  This is the same kind of legislation that guarantees women equal rights to those of men.

Only here, the intent is not to aid persecuted minorities or gender based inequalities, it is the U.S. House of Representatives passing what illinoisfamily.org  calls the “disastrous and dishonestly titled Equality Act”, that if passed into law will not merely gut First Amendment protections but effectively ban Christianity and any other religions that teach that homoerotic acts and cross-sex impersonation are immoral.”

H.R. 5 was passed last Friday afternoon by a vote of 236 to 173, with 23 not voting.  Writing for illinoisfamily.org, Laurie Higgins can only wonder what drugs these elected U.S. officials are on and calls out what she terms are eight (8) traitorous U.S. House Republicans who voted with the Democrats in favor of the faux-equality act.

They are:  Reps. Susan Brooks (Ind.), Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Will Hurd (Texas), John Katko (N.Y.), Tom Reed (N.Y.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Greg Walden (Ore.).  These are the Republicans that need to be voted out of office at their next elections.

These politicians sold their souls and our religious liberty, assembly rights, and speech rights for a mess of pottage in the form of their re-election bids.  Writes Higgins, “Either self-serving desire to preserve their position was their motivation, or they have no understanding either of equality or the differences between conditions like race and sex and conditions like homoeroticism and opposite-sex impersonation.”

Higgins is right.  H.R. 5 is based on self-serving interests of those who bring this demented law into the political light, legislation that has nothing to do with equality, God, or justice.  Some say it was created by the perverted as one more layer of cover for the destruction of Christianity, while others believe it is another underlying theme forced into society’s consciousness attached to clouds of globalization of the planet.  It weighs deeper into the division of America while delegating God to merely a secondary right of existence under man’s laws.

IS THE EQUALITY ACT RADICAL AND DANGEROUS?

According to the National Review, the Equality Act is downright “radical and dangerous.” The article cites Douglas Laycock, a law professor at the University of Virginia, and longtime supporter of same-sex marriage, someone who has also been a longtime supporter of enacting a federal gay-rights non-discrimination law, who does not support the Equality Act. 

Laycock says the bill which would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the 1964 Civil Rights Act would “crush” conscientious objectors.  Christians and other religious observers who don’t approve of sexual deviation would literally be silenced by American courts in attempting to free themselves from others’ sexual and gender beliefs.

“It goes very far to stamp out religious exemptions,” Laycock says to the National Review in an email. “It regulates religious non-profits.  And then it says that [the Religious Freedom Restoration Act] does not apply to any claim under the Equality Act.  This would be the first time Congress has limited the reach of RFRA.  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 ….”  The other side being those who believe in God

IS MAN’S LAW OVERRIDING GOD?

Religious schools would probably be viewed as “public accommodations” under the Equality Act even if they refuse all federal funding, says Laycock via the National Review.  If passed and signed into law, the Equality Act would require that federal law recognize disordered subjective feelings and deviant behaviors as protected characteristics.

Federal law would absurdly recognize homoeroticism and cross-sex masquerading as conditions that must be treated like race and biological sex, which are objective, 100 percent inheritable conditions that are in all cases immutable, and carry no behavioral implications.

In her article for illinoisfamily.org, Higgins describes the outcome as literally being evil for America’s religious future:

“Once H.R. 5 is enjoined to protect two groups based on their subjective, internal sexual feelings and volitional sexual behaviors, we open a Pandora’s Box of evils that will inevitably result in conflicts between the spanking new legal rights of those who embrace sexual deviance as “identity” and 1. the First Amendment rights of those who reject sexual deviance, 2. the moral right of businesses to require restrooms, locker rooms, and showers to correspond to biological sex, 3. the right of businesses to fire or refuse to hire a person who chooses to masquerade as the opposite sex, and 4. the right of public schools to fire or to refuse to hire a person who chooses to masquerade as the opposite sex.”

There is nothing intrinsically unjust about treating people differently based on their volitional choices, writes Higgins.  There is nothing unjust about treating biological women as different from biological men who impersonate women. And it is manifestly just and proper for an organization or business to fire people like Thomas Donnelly a defense and national security Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and BDSM aficionado who now masquerades as a woman named “Giselle.”

“Just as the legal prohibition of discrimination based on homoerotic feelings and acts conflicts with the legal prohibition of religious discrimination, so will the legal prohibition of discrimination based on feelings about maleness and femaleness and acts related to those feelings set in motion conflicts with prohibitions of religious and sex discrimination,” writes Higgins.  “It is morally and intellectually untenable that subjective feelings and volitional acts supersede both biological sex and religion as a protected class.”

We’re going to have to fight to save our God-given, inalienable rights to actually worship God with others out in the open.  To do this, we’re going to have to recognize the full out assault on our ability to strengthen our relationship with God, who is assaulting our freedoms, and what it will take to help humanity rise above this attack, which is world wide, under the guise of the ungodly, George Soros, and the globalist politicians and bankers put into power by the elites.
