Shocking New Bill Essentially Criminalizes Christianity

Feb 23, 2021

Not content to close churches or severely restrict them, congressional Democrats are racing to pass the most dangerous bill to ever be considered by Congress. It is deceptively misnamed the “Equality Act.” Shockingly, this bill states that religious freedom cannot be used as a defense!

The U.S. House is expected to vote on HR 5 — intentionally misnamed the “Equality Act” — as early as Thursday! I cannot overstate how disastrous the passage of this bill would be. Every person in the nation will be affected. This bill is the most radical bill ever introduced in Congress to advance the LGBTQ agenda and abortion.

HR 5 elevates “sexual orientation and gender identity” (referred to here as LGBTQ – the Senate version says Q stands for “Queer”) to the same protected category as race. It will affect every American in numerous ways.

It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations, contractors, houses of worship, public, private, and religious schools, curricula, bathrooms, sports, daycare providers, shelters, hospitals, places of gathering, entertainment, counselors, foster care and adoption, biological parents, landlords (even a single room in your house), anyone providing a “good, service, or program” including online, and all local, state, and federal entities and many other jurisdictions.

In this email I can only highlight some of the dangers of passing HR 5...

  • Biological men will have access to women’s sports, bathrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers and shelters.
  • Pastors could be forced to officiate same-sex ceremonies and churches would have to offer use of their buildings to LGBTQ groups.
  • Churches and religious organizations would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies and even baby showers or lose tax-exempt status for non-compliance and possible lawsuits.
  • Churches and religious schools would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBTQ conduct, even to visible positions of authority, and give them complete access to all children, even in restrooms.
  • Churches and religious colleges will lose tax-exemption and accreditation if they do not bow to this radical agenda.
  • If taking overnight trips with children, including sports or mission trips for schools or churches, leaders will not be able to separate people sleeping in the same room by biological gender.
  • Religious schools would be forced to hire teachers and staff involved in the LGBTQ agenda. Staff will be forced to use biologically false pronouns and assign biological males to the girls' dorms.
  • From kindergarten, children will be taught that they can choose their gender and will be encouraged to experiment with each other.

And the Holy Bible's content addressing human sexuality will become a target under the bill.

HR 5 applies to a person’s “actual or perceived romantic, emotional, physical, or sexual attraction to other persons or lack thereof on the basis of gender. LGBTQ people, including “gender nonbinary people” are included.

The Q (“Queer”) in HR 5 will even protect pedophilia. Listen to what the pedophile group "B4U-ACT" says about “minor-attracted persons” ...

  • No one chooses to be emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents.
  • Attraction to children becomes a central part of their identity.
  • Minor-attracted people are not dangerous or deviants.
  • Referring to minor-attracted people as pedophiles or a risk to children stigmatizes them and is not in the best interest of children or society.

This group's main goal is to change the culture so that their perverted desires are no longer “at odds” with society. One of B4U-ACT’s spokespersons, Paul Christiano, was a registered sex offender who ended his own life at age 39.

The group has gone so far as to claim that pedophiles “often show a desire to protect children and make them happy.” This group and their despicable practices would be part of a legally protected class if HR 5 becomes law.
