Making A Difference In The Nation's Capital Through Prayer And Action

The Return of the "Equality Act"

Jun 23, 2020

Last week's Supreme Court employment ruling was shocking. While the ruling sided with the LGBT agenda on certain employment-related areas, the so-called "Equality Act" is far more expansive and dangerous. This bill greatly expands the reach of the federal government, applies to public accommodations, amends many laws, bans change counsel, and repeals the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as a defense.

And now radicals in the U.S. Senate are pushing the so-called "Equality Act" to a voice vote on the floor, attempting to use the ‘unanimous consent’ procedure, hoping they can find a window with no objecting senators present in the Senate. If they find that opportunity, this expansive bill can pass in the blink of an eye, with just the verbal approval of whoever happens to be on the Senate floor.

This legislation will force every person, church, school, religious business owner or employee to bow the knee to the LGBT agenda—or face devastating lawsuits and bankrupting legal damages.

In fact, the Supreme Court specifically said that RFRA will provide a defense to religious employers from its distorted employment ruling.

But, the "Equality Act" would completely erase RFRA and religious exemptions ... even for churches, schools, and everyone else. Under the "Equality Act" —

  • Clergy can be forced to officiate a same-sex ceremony.
  • Churches and religious schools will lose tax exemption and accreditation, which will kill most religious schools.
  • Your home-based business will be impacted.
  • You can be sued even if you did nothing wrong because objective reality is cast aside.
  • Men will have unfettered access to women's bathrooms, locker and changing rooms, and sports.
  • And these are just a few of the dozens and dozens of far-reaching consequences of this bill.

Now is the moment to take a stand and fight before it is too late. If we don't, you will be forced to choose between bowing to the LGBT agenda or facing punishment and expensive lawsuits.

Send your fax right now to urge our senators to not open this Pandora's Box.

Imagine going to church, looking up to the front and having the children's message come from a man with makeup, a dress, a pink-and-green wig and glitter everywhere. While this has already happened in one church, if the "Equality Act" passes, this example will have the legal authority to come to your church. Any attempt of you or your pastor to fight against this happening would be illegal under this proposed law.

Until now, we have been able to stop the "Equality Act" from passing in the Senate. But, following the recent Supreme Court ruling, the LGBT activists are trying to convince senators that they must pass the law to conform to the ruling. This is a lie because the bill is far more expansive than the ruling.

Right now, Faith & Liberty is giving you the opportunity to stop this before it gets legal backing. But there is no time to lose. Your team at Faith & Liberty has counted 47 U.S. Senators (including Republican Susan Collins from Maine) who have signed on to sponsor this legislation ... and bring what we just described to your church. Usually more people vote for a bill than co-sponsor it. So, we don't know exactly how many senators are secretly willing to vote for this bill.

What we do know is that this new threat demands minute-by-minute vigilance. It means that conservative senators will have to take coordinated shifts on the floor of the Senate every minute it's open from now until the Senate officially closes for the last time in December. Every minute from gavel to gavel must be guarded.

And we know we’re fighting against some of the best-funded, high-powered left-wing groups on Capitol Hill that are pushing this bill, hard.

Can I count on you to help stop this bill with your fax to the Senate right now?

Our staff's presence on Capitol Hill was the only reason we were able to catch this sneak attempt to pass this bill.

This discovery is a direct result of your support. So, I want to thank you for reading this important email, for taking action, for your prayers, and especially for your financial support that keeps our ministry standing as watchmen on the wall of our nation pointing out the threats to your freedom, day after day.

We urge you to not stand by silently as radicals are seeking to destroy every religious exemption. We are trying to get the word out about this new threat.

If you can forward this information to your friends, family, and also to conservative media contacts, I would be grateful. Our churches, pastors, in-home businesses, religious organizations and schools, foster parents, and so much more deserve better than to be forced to bow the knee to the latest political whim.

Thank you for standing with us!

Your missionaries to Washington, DC,
