Democrats and the Left have really outdone themselves this time. The highest duty of the federal government, after protecting the people from enemies foreign and domestic, at least according to our Founders, is to protect and expand individual liberty.
We don’t even talk about liberty anymore. When was the last time you heard a congressman or senator talk about protecting liberty when debating a bill?
While Donald Trump and Republicans are fighting for individual freedoms by getting the government off the people’s backs, Democrats are fighting for a tyrannical government leviathan to take away individual freedoms and liberty from the majority for the sake of specific voting blocks, that lead to the ultimate goal of destroying the American system and replacing it with a utopian heaven on earth.
In the recently Democrat-sponsored bill that passed the House on Friday, called the “Equality Act,” the government would treat any recognition of the differences between the sexes, and/or any desire to live under traditional American sexual morality, as a hate crime.
“It is the most dangerous bill to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion that has ever been proposed on a national level,” said Houston Baptist University Prof. Robert Gagnon, an expert in biblical sexual morality. “It will codify into law that you are a bigot, the moral equivalent of a racist, tantamount to being a member of the Klu Klux Klan, who must be shut out of society and, wherever possible, harassed and persecuted for your beliefs.”
This bill would criminalize Judeo-Christian values, which would finally put the God haters over the top in their quest to stamp out religion, a mission that started after the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling on same-sex marriage.
The bill also means that if a man with a permanent five o’clock shadow who is wearing a dress and misapplied makeup applies for a receptionist job, and is turned away, he/she/zie/they could sue the company for discrimination, even though the private business has the right to determine who the first person customers greet looks like.
This is where we’re at in Washington. The vote for this oppressive bill in the House was 236-173. Eight Republicans joined 228 Democrats. Those 8 Republicans need to be outed and challenged with primaries.
The Left has worked very hard to make it seem like the “special rights” they seek for transgendered people are a demand for equal rights, and anyone who debates them on it is automatically considered a bigot.
This bill would put the final nail in the marriage-and-family coffin if you will, by destroying the moral order of America. Those who make that claim aren’t being hyperbolic. The lawyers would have a field day if this bill were to become law, seven field days a week. They would destroy millions of American lives based on senseless legislation that targets the moral fabric of our society. America is only as strong as its families.
Some RINOs are already capitulating to the idea by suggesting “carve-outs” for churches, letting the rest of American Christians and Jews suffocate under the jack-booted weight of a government run by LGBTQ progressive activists who won’t tolerate any of the “old order” morality system, because the bill rules out any religion-based defenses. How could any Republican support a violation of the First Amendment’s Freedom of Religion and Free Speech rights?
From The Washington Times:
It’s time to educate the public about this bill’s toxic blend of mad science and totalitarian intent, and it won’t be easy.
“All the principalities and powers will cooperate in giving this cudgel to Leviathan,” writes John Smirak at thestream.org. “And to litigious thugs like [Pennsylvania state] Rep. Brian Sims. Guys who hike their testosterone count by bullying women and kids. Ask [Masterpiece Cakeshop owner] Jack Phillips and other victims of Gay Sharia how it feels. That will be the fate of every faithful Christian if this unjust bill becomes law.”
Unless we reassert the primacy of natural marriage and natural sexuality, “our battle will be a losing one,” Mr. Smirak writes. “Our churches will end up essentially illegal. Sooner or later.”
MassResistance, a parents-rights group, has compiled a list of likely outcomes. Here’s a tweaked version:
1. It will undermine the civil rights movement that black Americans fought for.
2. Churches will be sued or lose tax-exempt status if they don’t accept LGBTQ behaviors.
3. Schoolchildren will be forced to learn how to engage in destructive LGBTQ behaviors [in California, it begins in kindergarten].
4. Parents who oppose this will be charged with discrimination, and could lose custody of their children.
5. Private colleges will lose funding, grants and scholarships.
6. Public accommodations and small businesses will be forced to allow men into women’s bathrooms and vice versa. This will enable sexual assaults.
7. Business owners will be forced to violate their freedom of conscience.
8. Hospitals, clinics and the armed forces will be forced to offer experimental and harmful transgender treatments — including surgeries.
9. Foster and adoption agencies will be forced to close, as has already happened to Catholic Charities in several liberal cities.
10. Men will displace women in sports events (already happening).
11. It would compel speech. Teachers would be forced to refer to trans students by their preferred pronouns, and who can ever keep up with that?
12. It would shut down charities. Foster care, adoption agencies, drug rehabs centers, and homeless shelters already face challenges under state and local policies on gender identity.
Where’s the individual liberty in this bill? Blair White is a popular non-leftist transgender woman with a large following on YouTube, who sometimes comes out against the transgender community’s crazy, off the wall demands. Under this bill, White would also be charged with a hate crime. And that’s just it. The legislation is written so that there can be no public debate. That’s what the Left is into these days; silencing the opposition.
We need to get active against this threat to our way of life. Make no mistake about it, these people are threatening your freedoms and liberty with government force. Christians and Jews have been tolerant toward transgenders in America up until the point where they are being forced to participate in their lifestyle. This legislation goes further than ever before, and we shouldn’t be so tolerant as to accept our own demise. Contact your representatives and let them know you are against the government tyranny that the Equality Act would bring to all Americans.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it !
