HR 5 Teed Up for Vote at Any Time...

Mar 25, 2021

There is no time to delay.

Sen. Schumer invoked Rule 14, which tees up HR 5, the badly misnamed “Equality Act,” to be voted on at any moment—thus bypassing committees.

Although the Senate Judiciary held a one-day hearing last week, Sen. Schumer is poised to take this dangerous bill straight to the Senate floor for a voice vote in order to get around the 60-vote filibuster rule. But we can stop this bill if we act now and force the filibuster.

HR 5 is not about equality—if it were, the bill would not expressly revoke the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and it would protect children, not kill them! This is the most expansive, freedom-crushing bill ever!

Please rush your urgent fax to the U.S. Senate to stop Republicans from caving to this legislation and block this bill. — Mat

Churches and religious schools must have the right to teach the next generation biblical values. Without this freedom, churches and church schools close or go underground. Communist countries relentlessly target churches and their schools to silence them. That is exactly what HR 5 does.

Imagine your children at church or Christian school being taught by a male "drag queen," and the church and school is powerless to say, "No, this violates our biblical beliefs!" Seems far-fetched? It's not.

We actually have a case of an elementary teacher in Madison, Wisconsin, who sent the K-5 children a video telling the youngsters to no longer refer to him as "Mr." From henceforth, they must refer to him as "Mx." because he is "neither male nor female." He says he is "both, and sometimes neither."

If this person, who now goes by "Mx. Steele," taught your children in your church or school, HR 5 would give him the legal right to do what he did in this public school. Resistance would result in lawsuits by the state attorney general and private individuals for "discrimination."

The "Equality Act" will force churches and religious schools—pre-K through college—to remain silent and submit.

Send a fax immediately to help us fight against this outrageous bill.

Not only will churches and religious schools face costly lawsuits, but they'll also lose tax exemption, and schools will lose accreditation. For most colleges and universities, loss of accreditation is a death sentence.

Remember the for-profit ITT Technical Institute? It closed after losing accreditation. With students unable to get student loans and not being able to go on to graduate school, the loss of accreditation is devastating.

The "Equality Act" will also force churches and religious organizations that perform marriage ceremonies to provide the facilities for same-sex ceremonies ... or face crushing lawsuits.

Abuse shelters for women will be forced to allow men to sleep in the same rooms with women. Churches will be forced to allow boys to sleep with girls on overnight trips.

The "Equality Act" will affect everyone—including the individual working part-time from home providing goods or services online. It is a massive expansion of the federal government's domineering power!

Time is short and every Senate vote counts. Everyone reading this email should respond by sending a fax and/or signing the petition.

Send your fax right now to Congress to block this bill.

Chris Weaver led “worship” at his “church” in New York called Zoe Ministries. Yet Chris would go straight from church to put on makeup and perform in drag as "Nedra Belle" at local specialized bars.

He even bragged to a reporter, “Listen, the children better be ready” for his drag queen performance as “Nedra Belle.”

If the “Equality Act” becomes law, trying to stop someone like Weaver from performing in drag at your church or synagogue would be met with lawsuits, fines, loss of tax exemption and more.

We have a narrow window to stop this bill. I'm asking you to make your voice heard on Capitol Hill by sending a fax directly to the key decision-makers in Congress. They need to hear from you. Join us in blocking this dangerous bill with your urgent fax now.

By the way, the Senate version states the “Q” in LGBTQ stands for “Queer.” This word covers the entire universe of “sexual orientations” outside of LGBT—which means it includes "minor-attracted individuals" (pedophilia). This is NOT an exaggeration! Every deviant behavior is covered by the “Q.

Make no mistake, this bill is a real threat. It paints a huge target on the backs of everyone. If you haven't already done so, sign our petition. We have prepared the necessary support documents to make the petition effective to those receiving it.

Our team in Washington, D.C., is in contact with members of Congress to stop this bill, even as we continue to defend pastors, churchgoers, and pro-life warriors in courtrooms across America, including the Supreme Court.
