"See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven".Matthew 18:10
On June 4, 1919, women won the right to vote. Last week, the US Congress passed H.R.5, the so called Equality Act. This legislation potentially wipes out a multitude of hard fought for women's rights by virtually eliminating gender.
In 1993, President Bill Clinton signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This legislation was actually sponsored by Senator Chuck Schumer. It passed the Senate unanimously. The Equality Act will gut this important legislation and prohibit it from being used as a defense for violating the Equality Act. Congress' vote was preceded by President Biden's executive order that gives new rights to transgenders that eviscerates women's sports and privacy.
This is much more than men playing in women's sports. The Equality Act is a frontal assault on the church. It will affect church hiring practices and rest room facilities to name a few. Religious schools and universities will be forced to alter the curricula to reflect the LGBTQ and transgender philosophy. State abortion laws will be repealed to accommodate state paid for abortions. Many pro-life laws may also be in jeopardy. Foster care and women's domestic violence shelters will be forced to make dramatic changes that allow access to biological men. Men and young boys who choose to identify as women will have free access to women's bathrooms and showers. Parental rights will give way to government mandates that promote unbiblical world views.
The Equality Act is now headed to the Senate. If the Senate is successful in eliminating the filibuster, there is a strong chance this bill will become law. President Biden waits with pen in hand.
Call to Action: call, write and email Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly and urge them to vote no on H.B 5 Equality Act. The Arizona Congressmen who voted for this bill are: Ruben Gallego, Ann Kirkpatrick, Raul Grijalva, Greg Stanton and Tom O'Halleran. Let them know how you feel about this vote.
We all want LGBTQ and transgender people to be treated with love and respect, free from discrimination. What we don't want is our God given unalienable rights infringed upon with legislation that attacks the core of a moral society.
