House Expected to Vote on Misnamed "Equality Act" Tomorrow

Feb 24, 2021

There is zero time to delay.

Tomorrow, the U.S. House is expected to begin voting on HR 5, the misnamed "Equality Act."

Our team on Capitol Hill just got word that the Senate Democrats are considering ways to skip the committees altogether and take this dangerous bill straight to the Senate floor for a voice vote.

HR 5 is not about equality -- if it were, the bill would not expressly state that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act shall not be a defense! This is the most expansive, freedom-crushing bill to ever come out of Congress!

Please rush your urgent fax to the U.S. House and Senate to stop Republicans from caving to this legislation and block this bill. -- Your Faith & Liberty team

Churches (including religious schools) must have the right to teach the next generation biblical values. Without this freedom, churches and schools close or go underground. Communistic countries relentlessly target churches 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. There is actually a case of an elementary teacher in Madison, WI who sent the children K-5 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 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 school face costly lawsuits, they'll lose tax-exemption, and schools will lose accreditation. For most schools, especially 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. 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.

The time is short and every 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 makeup on 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 Chris from preforming in drag at your church or synagogue, would be met with lawsuits, fines, loss of tax-exemption, and more.

We have a very narrow window to stop this bill. We're 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 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 very real threat. Last year, it had 47 co-sponsors in the Senate. It paints a huge target on the backs of everyone. If you haven't already, sign our petition. We are preparing the necessary support documents to make the petition effective to those receiving it.

This terrible proposed law threatens our very existence, and we are in contact with members of Congress to stop this bill.

But we need your help. Join our extended Challenge Grant to DOUBLE the impact of your gift right now. Support Faith & Liberty today.
