Unfathomable: Now Congress wants to criminalize your Christian principles

Just a few weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi, D-California, introduced (or re-introduced?) H.R. 5, the so-called Equality Act. This bill would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” (SOGI) as protected classes under the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Of course we, as Catholics and Christians, accept each individual as created by God and as such, worthy and deserving of our love, prayers and basic human rights, but THIS bill proposes something far different.. something sinister.  This bill H.R. 5 would essentially criminalize Christian principles!

Speaker Pelosi and those who support this bill would usher in and establish radical sexual ideology and practices that would supercede any citizen’s and any business owner’s religious liberties and First Amendment rights.

This unprecedented law would sanction government discrimination against traditional values and doctrines of religious faiths and the deeply held religious principles of private business employers and their employees.

As Liberty Counsel summarized the bill:

      • HR 5 is a bill that pushes the LGBT agenda on all people and targets Christianity in every Fidei-Technology without moral compromise for your ogranizationarea of life—including the church. There will be an increase of instances where Christians and others are being punished unless they violate their beliefs in order to comply with such a law. And that is just the beginning of unconstitutional chaos in America…

      • This bill destroys bathroom privacy. It would welcome both genders into every bathroom in America.
      • This bill directs religious K-12 schools and daycare centers to force children to obey adults who show up at work one day as a man and the next day as a woman. These children are at a highly impressionable age. When kindergarteners have seen such events in the past, many have gone home shaking and crying, worried that they could wake up with a different gender!
      • This bill gags counselors from giving professional help to those facing unwanted same-sex desires or actions. It even criminalizes those who share their own story of finding freedom in Christ from homosexuality in a book or speaking engagement. This bill literally sets the stage for banning the Bible, which offers the power to free those wanting to turn away from homosexual conduct.
      • This bill imposes NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION ! 
      • This bill demands that every religious adoption agency place innocent children in homes with adults involved in same-sex conduct. And it also demands that religious families be willing to accept practicing LGBTQ minors in their home as a prerequisite to being approved as foster parents.
      • Under HR 5, property owners would be forced to accept renters whose actions violate their religious beliefs, including renting out a room in their home or their private vacation home.
      • Home-based businesses would be forced to hire and welcome LGBTQ people into their privately-owned home, even if they are trying to raise their children according to their own religious beliefs!Fidei-Technology without moral compromise for your ogranization
      • This legislation would create many more victims — like women in shelters who have been sexually assaulted by a man posing as a “transgender” to gain access to the facility.

This week, the Democratic-controlled House is scheduled to vote on H.R.5. The intended consequences of this bad law will restrict religious freedoms, chill religious expression and ultimately criminalize sincerely held Judeo-Christian views and values.

After learning more below, consider taking action now by sending your U.S. representative a message to vote “no” on the Equality Act.

What else would House of Representative bill H.R.5 do?

According to the American Family Association, by this so-called “Equality Act,” business owners, employees and customers alike will be subject to a radical social experiment and LGBTQ appeasement:

  • Female business owners, customers and employees would be forced to share their privacy in restrooms and dressing rooms with men who claim to be women.

  • Health care providers and professionals would be forced to perform gender transition procedures (sex changes) and provide medical services (hormone therapy) that would violate their moral and religious convictions.Catholic CPA for you -

  • Amusement parks, recreation centers, skating rinks and daycare centers and so on will be forced to employ people whose values on sexuality deviates from those of the employer.

  • Adoption and foster care agencies will be forced to place children into same-sex households and into homes of individuals suffering from gender confusion or biological denialism.

  • College and professional sports stadiums would be required to open its restrooms to either sex.
