The misnamed "Equality Act" is the most dangerous ambush of religious freedom.
The "Q" in LGBTQ includes about 550 sexually deviant paraphilias—including pedophilia that will become a protected class under this bill!
Cosmopolitan states: "Queerness is an umbrella term that is both an orientation and a community. ... The vagueness of the term is intentional—queer is an identity created for anyone outside of the heterosexual norm and meant to be inclusive."
In addition, the activist group LGBTQ Nation wrote, the "Q in LGBTQ can also signify other sexual orientations and gender not covered by the acronym's preceding letters. If you're gender-neutral, non-binary, agender, genderfluid, pansexual, asexual, solosexual or something else not covered by LGBT, the Q has got you covered!"
In fact, there is an entire organization dedicated to normalizing pedophilia in America. B4U-ACT is a "collaborative effort of mental health professionals and people who are attracted to children or adolescents" with the goal "to educate the public regarding issues faced by these individuals." The new euphemism for pedophile is a "minor-attracted person."
And this bill is sitting on the Senate floor waiting for a vote at any moment to give special privileges and legal protections for "Q."
Do not sit on the sidelines while radicals twist our nation's laws to abuse children and people of faith.
Republican Sen. Susan Collins from Maine, a co-sponsor of the Equality Act last year, has now withdrawn her support for the same bill she had previously co-sponsored!
We Can Stop This Bill in the Senate
We have bipartisan support to keep the filibuster—which requires 60 votes. The Democrats do not have 60 votes. That is why they are looking for ways to sneak this through on a majority voice vote. Every minute of every day, we need one person on the floor to object. That objection will force a full vote for cloture that needs 60 senators.
We are working with senators to guard the floor. We need every vote and every voice. We need your voice now to send a strong message.
Stop this bill from becoming law.
Among other things, the Equality Act will mean that:
— Biological men will destroy women's sports and have entry to their restrooms, locker rooms, dressing/shower rooms and shelters.
— Churches will be forced to provide equal access to LGBTQ ceremonies if the facilities are open to natural marriage ceremonies.
— Churches and religious schools would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBTQ conduct; give men access to restrooms, locker rooms, showers and sports; allow boys to bunk with girls on camping and overnight trips; and provide insurance to cover hormones, mutilating surgeries and chemical and surgical abortions.
— Noncompliant churches and schools will lose federal, state and local tax exemptions and accreditations.
— From pre-K, children will be taught that they can choose their gender, will be encouraged to experiment with each other to find their "identities" and will be able to demand opposite, both and neither sex pronouns ("he" for a girl, "zie" for neither, "mx" for both).
— Pregnancy centers will be forced to provide abortion referrals.
And if this bill passes, you will not escape its reach into every business, church, school and basically every person's life. It can even apply to many personal homes!
Our presence is even more vital now as we work with key senators. In addition to our work on this bill, we continue to kick down the gates of hell in states that still place unconstitutional restrictions on churches. We have won many battles, but the fight is far from over.
