Equality Act is the end of religious freedomOctober 26, 2020
To the editor:
Do you want the federal government to impose a belief system and ideology about sexuality and identity on all Americans — with no exceptions for me, you, your church or your pastor?
If the Equality Act (H.R. 5) is passed, it could require pastors and ministers to perform same-sex marriages; force doctors and hospitals to perform abortions or sex-change surgeries against their beliefs; force Christian organizations, schools, service providers, etc. to hire someone who does not conform to their beliefs; have ladies’ and girls’ privacy and safety compromised by having males who “claim to be females” allowed in their restrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms or share college dorm rooms; would allow transgender males to participate in your daughter’s sports.
To summarize this act, it gives “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” individuals full control of every aspect of our society! How? They would have full federal protection! See SEC. 1107: CLAIMS which says, “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under a covered title, or providing a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.”
The act is the most assertive form of discrimination — destroying our religious freedoms, freedom of conscience and freedom of speech!
Passed by Pelosi’s Democratic House May 20, 2019, all that is needed is a Democrat Senate majority to pass with the help of the president.
Biden promises to pass this law within the first 100 days if elected. We can't let this happen!
Also, President Trump is pro-life! He promotes Religious Freedom for all — demanding world leaders at United Nations meetings to respect, not persecute — and allow their citizens to practice their faiths.
Biden supports abortion (murder) and promises to repeal Hyde Amendment which would then allow taxpayer funding of abortion.
Biden and Pelosi are hypocrites against my Catholic faith! True Christians believe that abortion and same-sex marriage are grave sins against God!
Trump supports school choice and school vouchers. Biden promises to close all charter schools.
We must re-elect Trump!
