(Right Country) – President Joe Biden has put his emphatic support behind a bill that would eliminate the legal definition of gender, establish it as a form of discrimination to attempt to protect unborn babies in the womb.
This is seriously scary stuff.
“I applaud Congressman David Cicilline [D-RI] and the entire Congressional Equality Caucus for introducing the Equality Act in the House of Representatives yesterday, and I urge Congress to swiftly pass this historic legislation. Every person should be treated with dignity and respect, and this bill represents a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all,” the president said in a statement this week.
“Full equality has been denied to LGBTQ+ Americans and their families for far too long. Despite the extraordinary progress the LGBTQ+ community has made to secure their basic civil rights, discrimination is still rampant in many areas of our society. The Equality Act provides long overdue federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, locking in critical safeguards in our housing, education, public services, and lending systems — and codifying the courage and resilience of the LGBTQ+ movement into enduring law,” he added.
Breitbart News reports that the House is expected to vote on the Equality Act., H.R. 5, next week.
If passed, it would rewrite civil rights law so that “sexual orientation and gender identity” would be considered protected classes.
The last decade has seen the rise of a very disturbing, radical ideology when it comes to gender and sexual orientation, and with it, freedom of religion has never been more vulnerable.
There is a big, big difference between advocating for being nice to people who are gay or transgender and requiring that people be forced to violate their deepest moral convictions so as not to upset a gay or transgender person by the federal government.
“The so-called Equality Act is legislative malpractice that turns equality on its head,” Ryan Anderson, president of Ethics & Public Policy Center (EPPC), said in a statement.
“It isn’t drafted as a shield to protect vulnerable minorities from unjust discrimination, but as a sword to persecute those who do not embrace new sexual and gender ideologies.”

He noted that, in a particularly Orwellian twist, the law would also consider it discrimination to question the highly controversial “treatments” given to transgender individuals, as it would to refuse to support or provide an abortion.
“And any refusal to support or provide abortions would now be treated as ‘pregnancy’ discrimination,” he continued. “And no one—not even the act’s sponsors—can tell us what would be required under the act to avoid committing ‘discrimination’ in the case of ‘non-binary’ gender identities.”
A new study that examined students who claim to have gender identity issues found that, compared with 45% of students who are comfortable with their biological sex, 78% of gender-disturbed students met the criteria for at least one mental health problem. https://t.co/VzNAYJFNs5

“Every member of Congress should recognize that a vote for the ‘Equality’ Act is a vote against women, particularly women and girl athletes, as well as a vote against Americans of faith."
