(Right Country) – Despite the fact that Joe Biden claims to be a devout Catholic, he has actually introduced some of the most anti-Christian legislation to ever threaten America.
As if his pro-abortion stance wasn’t bad enough, one of his first acts as Commander-in-Chief was to modify the Equality Act to expand it so it would include protections for transgender individuals.
Transgenderism stands in direct opposition with Catholicism and traditional Christian teachings which dictate that there are only two genders, male and female, as described in the Bible.
Though the Catholic church has been, at times, lukewarm when it comes to bucking against anti-Christian laws and legislation, Biden seems to be ruffling feathers and Catholic leaders are speaking out.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue issued a warning Monday about the devastating effects of the Equality Act which he says would “promote the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law.”
Those who support the Equality Act say it’s purpose is to “end discrimination” the reality is that it will essentially fundamentally change the legal definition of sex to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
Dr. Donohue argues that this would undermine the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by giving special status to gay individuals and prioritizing them over religious freedom and conscience rights.
In other words, it would force Christians to violate their deeply held religious beliefs that gender comes from God and that there are and can only be two.
Donohue also points out that the Equality Act would also require healthcare providers to provide “hormone therapies and surgical procedures that are required to change the physical characteristics associated with sex changes,” without regard to the personal beliefs of healthcare workers.
He also noted that it’s become obvious that “the expansion of rights to transgender women — really biological males who identify as female — has come at the expense of rights for biological females.”
He cited how boys and men would be permitted to compete in sports against girls and women which would “unfairly” alter women’s sports. It wouldn’t just unfairly alter women’s sports, it would essentially completely negate women’s sports altogether.
He also took issue with the fact that boys and men would be permitted to use locker rooms, restrooms, and shower facilities that have “always been reserved for females.”
The biggest issue, however, is the fact that “Catholics, evangelicals, Orthodox Jews, Mormons, Muslims,” etc., “could not raise religious liberty objections to any of the aforementioned rights of transgender women,” Donohue warns.
He pointed out that it’s hard for people to understand how Biden and Pelosi can claim to be such devout Catholics and constantly bring up their religion and then “champion such patently anti-Christian legislation as the Equality Act.”
Even the US Catholic Bishops’ Conference website warns that the Equality Act would “discriminate against people of faith” and even “punish faith-based organizations” simply because their beliefs prohibit them from accepting the transgender agenda.
Last week, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann suggested that it’s time Biden “stop defining himself as a devout Catholic” and admit that his views and actions on issues like abortion and transgenderism are actually completely contrary to Catholic moral teaching.
Biden, Pelosi and other Democrats only use their supposed religion as a means to attract voters. They don’t actually mean a single thing they preach.
