UPDATE: Last week, the Nancy Pelosi-led U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass the so-called Equality Act, H.R. 5. President Joe Biden has also vowed to sign this dangerous bill, more accurately described as the "Inequality Act," within his first 100 days in office. With the bill now pending in the U.S. Senate, please take action to continue to encourage our U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz to publicly oppose this radical legislation.
The U.S. House of Representatives will vote soon on the so-called Equality Act. If you haven’t heard, this bill would create new protected classes based on a person’s self-identified "sexual orientation and gender identity" (SOGI).
This bill poses serious threats to Americans, especially women and children. If it becomes law, the Act will serve as a backdoor way to sanction abortions, introduce explicit content in school curriculum, let boys win in girls’ sports, pressure children toward experimental cross-sex hormones – and silence all of us who disagree.
Sound familiar? Many of these same items are included in the #BanTheBible Bills before the Texas Legislature that threaten our religious freedoms. We are working to defeat these dangerous LGBT bills in the state legislature, and we also need your help now to defeat it at the national level!
We must expose this Act for all that it really is.
Unfortunately, we’ve heard that Democratic leadership is not going to allow any meaningful debate on the Act before the vote. That means that even if a member of Congress opposes the Equality Act, they won’t have the opportunity to explain why.
The best way to make sure the Equality Act is exposed is to contact your member of Congress directly. Please take one minute and send a message now in our Action Center!
Thank you for taking action to oppose the "Equality" Act and support our efforts to protect religious freedom in Texas.
