This Could Crush Your Freedom At Any Time

Jun 1, 2021

The freedom we enjoy today could be gone if HR 5, the so-called "Equality Act" passes in the U.S. Senate. It will force everyone to comply with a damaging, freedom-crushing, LGBT & Q agenda. We absolutely MUST stop this bill, which already has 49 Democrat sponsors in the Senate! It will not only infringe on religious freedom in America ... it will obliterate it.

Yesterday, we honored the men and women who guarded our freedom—some paying the ultimate sacrifice. We must not let freedom die on our watch. Every senator must hear from you now! Demand that they block this bill with your immediate fax. — Faith & Liberty team

It's difficult to communicate the far-reaching impact of this bill.

In America, churches and people of faith have always had the freedom to live out their faith. Until now. This bill would completely strip that away.

However, it goes far beyond just applying to your church or business. It governs private homes and dabbling in online sales of a good or service or program! This bill applies to "any gathering" and is not limited to a "physical facility or place."

If you offer something for sale from your home on Etsy, eBay or other internet stores, then this bill will apply to you and subject you to lawsuits.

This nightmare legislation even applies to any "perceived" slight against someone who was associated in the past with anyone who is LGBTQ. It includes "beliefs." This means you could owe court-mandated "damages" for something that is entirely in a person's head.

This opens the door to mind-blowing injustice! The Catholic League described the Equality Act as the "most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law."

The Equality Act must be stopped! Send a fax immediately to fight this outrageous bill.

But it gets even stranger.

This legislation specifically includes "Q" in LGBTQ, which the bill says means "Queer." This includes about 550 paraphilias, including pedophilia.

Pedophilia is a paraphilia. The "Q" opens the doors of churches, schools and daycare centers to pedophiles and punishes anyone who tries to keep kids safe. B4U Act, which pushes its agenda to professors and activists, even uses the euphemism "minor-attracted persons."

We wish this were hyperbole, but it's not!

We can stop this bill in the Senate. There are two key Democrats that, so far, are willing to side with the Republicans to keep the filibuster (which requires 60 votes to vote on a bill). But the Democratic leadership is putting pressure on these two. And they will try to sneak this bill through on a voice vote under a budget bill to bypass the 60-vote rule. We are working to make sure there is always someone on the floor to object and force a full vote.

It is critical to make your voice heard by every senator! We must fight for our freedom and our children more than ever! Join us in blocking this radical bill with your rushed fax now.

In the urgency of this moment, we don't want to forget to share a few victories. This year, HR 5 had 16 fewer total co-sponsors in the House as compared to last year. Not a single House Republican co-sponsored it. (Last year, three U.S. House RINOs co-sponsored it!) In addition, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was a former co-sponsor, but she withdrew her sponsorship.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) invoked Rule 14, allowing him to bring up the bill any time and bypass the committees. At any moment, the bill can be called to a voice vote on the floor. If there is not a member of Congress on the Senate floor to verbally object in that moment, this bill could be passed without notice and sent to Joe Biden's desk. But here is where we are working to ensure an objecting voice is always present to force a full vote. A full vote would be subject to the filibuster rule that requires 60 votes. So far, there are enough votes joining Republicans to keep the filibuster.

We need all hands on deck. Congress is in the process of criminalizing our sincerely held religious beliefs. Send a fax to oppose the Equality Act right now.

Our team at Faith & Liberty is committed to fighting this dangerous bill. We need everyone to join in voicing opposition to the Equality Act.

This is a battle we must win!
