‘Equality Act’ Creates More ‘LGBT Rights’ But No Rights for Biblical Christians
The Supreme Court opened up a Pandora’s Box of rights for sexual activity. When civil rights legislation was enacted, it was not a racial behavior act, since race is not a behavior.
There are no identifiable “gay” people. If 20 people stood together in a group, and they all dressed the same, no one would be able to identify those who engaged in same-sex sexuality.
So why are “gays” and “transgendered” people designated a protected class? Why aren’t adulterers? They engage in a particular sexual behavior. So do pedophiles.
Declaring oneself to be “gay” only means that that person engages in a particular type of sex act. Why is this a codified civil right? It’s bizarre.
The goal of the same-sex perversion movement is to shut down all dissent. Once normal and moral sexual behavior is redefined, against the facts of biology and the Bible, then anything can be redefined.
Here’s what’s coming, and don’t expect your congressman to fight against it. Some of them will, but I predict that most of them won’t.
People (religious or not) should be allowed to associate with whom they want for whatever reason they want.
Once a government is given the authority and power to create new rights, there is no limit to the rights and un-rights it can enact into law.
So the Supreme Court has established “same-sex marriage,” and that will quiet the LGBT crowd, because, after all, they got what they wanted, right?
Not even close.
How about protections for LGBT people in jobs, jury duty, credit applications, housing, facilities that provide exhibitions, facilities that provide recreation, facilities that provide exercise, facilities that provide amusement and even facilities that provide “gatherings”?
Already, there’s a bill in Congress to do all those things and much more.
It even would gut the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act so LGBT-based discrimination complaints could be brought against churches that follow the Bible, which teaches homosexual behavior is a sin.
The “Equality Act” would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 “to include sex, sexual orientation and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation.”
It would unilaterally change public school desegregation standards “to provide for the assignment of students without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity.”
Churches that hold to biblical beliefs about sexuality would not be immune, according to Paul Kengor, whose book “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage” addresses the problem.
He shows how, beginning with Karl Marx and continuing with Margaret Sanger, Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse and assorted ’60s radicals, formerly fringe concepts have been accepted. And they’re being used by leftists to attack traditional marriage.
“I think we’re already seeing what’s next from the ‘LGBT’ and same-sex-marriage movement – that is, an aggressive and uncompromising push for forced acceptance, forced compliance, and forced acquiescence,” he said. “For these people, ‘tolerance’ doesn’t actually mean ‘tolerance,’ just as ‘diversity’ doesn’t actually mean ‘diversity.’ What they want is a very selective tolerance and very selective diversity, which, of course, isn’t actually real tolerance or real diversity.
