Keep An Eye On The “Equality Act”

The “Equality Act” (HB 3185) has been presented in Congress with more than a dozen senators and 100 House members, all Democrats, listed as co-sponsors.  The act would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 “to include sex, sexual orientation and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation” and would strip the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act so LGBT-based discrimination complaints could be brought against churches which preach or teach that homosexuality is a sin.

Churches would not be protected by this act and therefore would become targets of lawsuits, complaints to the EEOC or Department of Justice and the IRS to cost the church its tax exemption. This is a continued effort by the liberals to destroy the church.  This effort has the full support of the Far Left. Such support, as noted by Author David Kupelian in “The Snapping of the American Mind” is not “because the Left loves homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals for themselves, but because finally the Left has found its spear tip, with which – as it has dreamed of doing for decades – it can effectively attack, wound, marginalize, demonize, and criminalize its greatest enemy: the Christian religion.”

We have entered a period where the Christian religion is under attack as never before.  Our country was founded upon Christian principles and now those on the Left want Islam honored and Christianity dishonored.  They want our foundation uprooted and discarded.  Isaiah said it best, Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Our commission is to prayer for those who are deceived.  May God have mercy on their souls!
