Senate Vote Imminent on Freedom-Crushing Bill

Jun 18, 2021

On Capitol Hill, there is growing talk of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer forcing a vote on the misnamed "Equality Act."

We are hearing the Democrats are "happy with the progress they are making." Yesterday, Schumer met with 11 Democrats to begin the process of budget reconciliation, which requires only 51 votes. And, the word is, a vote on HR 5 will happen next week.

There is zero time to delay. Today is a critical moment of decision if this bill will move forward—or not.

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. Senate to stop HR 5. — Your Faith & Liberty team

Churches and religious schools must have the right to teach the next generation biblical values. Without this freedom, churches and schools close or go underground. Communist countries relentlessly target churches to silence them. That is exactly what HR 5 (Equality Act) does.

Imagine your children at church or Christian school being taught by a male "drag queen," and the church or school is powerless to say, "No, this violates our biblical beliefs!" Seems far-fetched? It's not. We actually have a case of an elementary teacher in Madison, Wisconsin, who sent all the children K-5 a video telling them 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 this outrageous bill.

Not only will churches and religious schools 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 with women. 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.

Time is short and every vote counts. Everyone reading this email should respond by sending a fax and/or signing our petition.

Send your urgent fax right now to demand our senators stop HR 5.


Chris Weaver led "worship" at his "church" in New York called Zoe Ministries. Yet Chris would go straight from church to put on makeup 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 performing 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 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 beyond LGBT—which means it includes "minor attracted individuals" (pedophilia). This is NOT an exaggeration! Every possible, imaginable deviant behavior becomes a special protected class that destroys religious freedom in America through the "Q."

Make no mistake, this bill is a very real threat. Last year, it had 47 cosponsors in the Senate. Now it has 49 cosponsors. It paints a huge target on the backs of everyone. If you haven't already done so, sign our petition. We are preparing the necessary support documents to make the petition effective to those receiving it.

Our team is 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. Support Faith & Liberty today.

We are grateful for the privilege of serving you and other concerned patriots on Capitol Hill. Thank you for standing with us!
