Urgent: New Bill Crushes Freedom

Mar 19, 2019

A bill in the U.S. House will force churches to hire cross-dressing teachers, allow males to use female restrooms and dressing rooms, and wed same-sex couples. If churches refuse, they will lose their tax-exempt status and be subject to costly lawsuits. The bill states that free exercise of religion is NOT a defense!

Please sign your name to our petition demanding this bill be stopped. If it becomes law, it will be a wrecking ball to churches, religious organizations, and religious people. This will accelerate religious persecution. Learn more below. - Mat

Under HR 5, religious freedom will be non-existent. It targets people who believe in Judeo-Christian values and demands we embrace what the Bible calls sin. Congress is trying to force us to accept sexual confusion. Otherwise churches and religious people will face fines and legal "damages." While this may sound exaggerated, I assure you it is not. Here are a few points:

  • Churches would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies.
  • Churches will lose tax-exempt status for noncompliance.
  • Colleges will lose accreditation for noncompliance.
  • Noncompliant colleges will be ineligible to receive student loans, causing most religious schools to compromise their core mission or close.
  • If churches or religious organizations take overnight trips, including sports or mission trips, they cannot segregate rooms by biological gender.
  • Biological men will have access to bathrooms, showers, and nursing-mother rooms at any time, and stay as long as they please.
  • Churches would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBT conduct, even positions of authority in affiliated daycare classes and give them complete access to all children in the restrooms.
  • Cross-dressers could demand that they be greeters, ushers, Sunday School teachers, and more.
  • Even the smallest slight would give someone the legal right to sue the church. For example, if a person assumed they were turned down for a staff position because of a LGBT lifestyle, they could sue the church for damages, even if that was not the reason they were denied the job!

This bill is a cataclysmic restructuring of our society. Just one bill would cause all this chaos and a lot more than I have space to explain here. We must stop this outrageous bill!

Sign our petition. If we respond in large numbers, we can stop this bill in the Senate.

There are 239 U.S. Representatives and more than 100 household-name businesses that have already endorsed HR 5. They are using their vast financial resources and energy to try to force their beliefs on everyone else.

Liberty Counsel Action is working overtime to wake people up to the dangers coming in HR 5. Shockingly, this bill specifically claims that it overwhelms any religious exemptions or concerns. We are suddenly fighting for the right to worship our God and raise our children as we believe is best.

Our work in Washington, D.C. is based on your generous support so that we can continue to fight this and other battles on Capitol Hill. We need your financial support to help us win this critical battle.

Join me in this push for freedom!

P.S. HR 5 will obliterate any religious freedom in America that churches currently enjoy. We need to stand up and explain to our neighbors, friends and pastors why this bill cannot be passed. Invite them to sign the petition, donate, or spread the word on the damage HR 5 will cause to our country!
