We as Christians have to stand up and fight against this bill!
This is only a sample of what could happen if they Pass the Equality Act H.R. 5 S 788
For example, Pascha Thomas was forced to remove her child from school after a male classmate assaulted her five-year-old daughter in the girls’ restroom. The boy had access to the girls’ restroom because the school’s policy that grants students access to private facilities on the basis of self-identified gender identity. Administrators refused to change the policy despite Thomas’ complaints. Federal authorities are now investigating the incident.
In fact, parents in Ohio lost custody of their seventeen-year-old daughter because they declined to put her on testosterone supplements.
The Equality Act would force hospitals and insurers to provide and pay for these therapies against any moral or medical objections. It would politicize medicine by forcing professionals to act against their best medical judgment and provide transition-affirming therapies.
The fight is already here. Catholic hospitals in California and New Jersey have been sued for declining to perform hysterectomies on otherwise healthy women who want to become male. A third Catholic hospital in Washington settled out of court when the ACLU sued them for declining to perform a double mastectomy on a gender dysphoric sixteen-year-old girl.
Take Peter Vlaming. This high school French teacher was dismissed under the school’s anti-discrimination policy after he refused to comply with administrators’ orders to use a female student’s preferred masculine pronouns. Vlaming had tried to accommodate the student by avoiding pronouns altogether and addressing the student by their preferred masculine name, but this was deemed insufficient by the school board.
The Equality Act would increase conflicts like these and put people out of work for their beliefs.
The Equality Act would force employers and workers to conform to new sexual norms or else lose their businesses and jobs.
This is already happening on the state and local level.
The most high profile example involves Colorado baker Jack Phillips, whose case went all the way to the Supreme Court after the Colorado Civil Rights Commission accused him of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation when he declined to create a custom cake for a same-sex wedding.
Basically the Equality Act removes gender identity!
You are what you say you are?
The law will provide you protection to be who ever you want to be!
This is ridiculous!!!!!! We cant allow this bill to pass!!!!!!
