This Could Change America

Jul 28, 2021

The greatest attack on freedom I have ever seen is the misnamed “Equality Act.” This threatens religious freedom, speech, privacy, women’s rights and even human life to an extreme that we have never witnessed in America.

Everyone will be harmed, including churches, organizations, religious schools and people of faith. Please rush your urgent faxes to the U.S. Senate to stop HR 5. —Mat

HR 5, the misnamed “Equality Act” will target and attack everyone—especially religious people and institutions—with shocking, never-before-seen violations of freedom in America!

The bill passed in the House. The Senate is just a few votes away from enacting the most outrageous and expansive bill ever to come out of Congress. It will be used to force every person to fall in line with the radical LGBTQ agenda or face punishment. As the budget bills are moving through Congress, the Democrats will try to slip HR 5 (S 393) through the Senate.

This is a massive attack on every person. The far-reaching impact of this bill can best be described in this short sentence: What you cannot do respecting race, you will not be able to do legally respecting LGBTQ. This bill explicitly guts religious freedom and elevates anything LGBTQ to the nation’s top priority.

We must fight for our freedom and our children more than ever! Join us in blocking this radical bill with your rushed faxes now.

  • Biological men will have access to women’s restrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers and nursing-mother rooms.
  • Churches and religious establishments would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies or lose tax-exempt status for noncompliance.
  • Churches and religious schools would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBTQ conduct and give them access to children.
  • Churches and religious colleges will lose tax exemption and accreditation if they do not bow to this radical agenda.
  • On overnight trips with children, including sports or missions, you will not be able to have separate sleeping arrangements based on biology.
  • From kindergarten, children will be taught that they can choose their gender and will be encouraged to experiment with each other.
  • Noncompliant websites, emails and social media will be shut down.
  • Employers will have to pay for abortion and LGBTQ drugs/surgeries.
  • And so much more. See the full list on our webpage.

The last two years, we have won this battle by stopping this bill in the Senate. But HR 5 is back. We must target the Senate. Every vote counts. This year, a victory will require every vote we can muster. Send your faxes right now to the Senate to block this bill.

HR 5 applies to a person’s “actual or perceived romantic, emotional, physical, or sexual attraction to other persons or lack thereof.” LGBTQ people, “gender nonbinary people” among them, are included.

The Q (“Queer”) in HR 5 will even protect pedophilia. Listen to what the pedophile group "B4U-ACT" says about “minor-attracted persons” ...

  • No one chooses to be emotionally and sexually attracted to children or adolescents.
  • Attraction to children becomes a central part of their identity.
  • Minor-attracted people are not dangerous or deviants.
  • Referring to minor-attracted people as pedophiles or a risk to children stigmatizes them and is not in the best interest of children or society.

This group's main goal is to change the culture so that their perverted desires are no longer “at odds” with society. One of B4U-ACT’s spokespersons, Paul Christiano, was a registered sex offender who ended his own life at age 39.

The group has gone so far as to claim that pedophiles “often show a desire to protect children and make them happy.” This group and their despicable practices would be part of a legally protected class if this bill becomes law.

It is imperative that we do not allow this to pass. Stand with me today. Send your faxes to stop it in the U.S. Senate.

This is a critical week during the budget process. Our presence on Capitol Hill is even more vital as we work with key members in the House and Senate. We are providing critical information to muster opposition to HR 5, but these members of the Senate MUST hear from you!

Together, we can win! I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to stop HR 5.
