Equality Act Equals LGBT Coercion on Christians
Washington D.C. – The supposed “Equality Act” heavily pushed by Nancy Pelosi and filed by Democrat Rep. David Cicilline is set to be voted on this week in the U. S. House and we adamantly oppose the passage of this bill, H.B.5. The Equality Act is deceptively named and patently broken. While cloaked under the name “equality” this act will create new protected classes based on a person’s self-identified sexual orientation and gender identity that will undermine and destroy many of our values pertaining to faith, family, and freedom.
“The Equality Act is not about civil rights, it is about civil elitism that will put women, children, adoption agencies, and everyday Christians at the back of the line. Passing this bill would erode religious freedom, erase women’s rights under Title IX, and shut down non-profit organizations led by good-hearted persons,” said Mary Elizabeth Castle, Policy Advisor for Texas Values
Schools will be coerced to indoctrinate our children with sexual orientation and gender identity curriculum and political ideology. In the supposed name of equality, this Act will also allow biological males to play girls’ sports. This will shatter the dreams of many girls by stripping them of scholarships and college athletic opportunities. Unfortunately, any parents, hospitals, adoption centers, counselors, medical professionals, etc. that oppose such mutilative surgeries and don’t affirm self-professed gender identity could be subject to lawsuits.
These are just a few specific areas Christians will be affected but really all Christians will be persecuted by this Equality Act. If you believe God made us male and female and marriage should be between a male and female, then you as well are subject to possible discrimination lawsuits.
Texas Values will continue to stand against these advances and ensure women’s rights, children, and religious freedom are protected. Please also join our effort by contacting your Representative and tell them to vote no and stand against the Equality Act.
