Equality Act Threatens Religious Liberty. The federal legislation has passed the House and is being considered in the U.S. Senate 

     The Equality Act purports to protect people experiencing same-sex attraction or gender discordance from unjust discrimination. Although this is a worthy purpose, the Equality Act does not serve it. And instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act discriminates against people of faith precisely because of those beliefs.  In the process, the Equality Act codifies the new ideology of “gender” in federal law, dismissing sexual difference and falsely presenting “gender” as only a social construct.

  The Equality Act explicitly exempts itself from the requirements and protections of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. This would be unprecedented, as no federal law has ever done so before, and it demonstrates the Equality Act’s radical denial of tolerance to people of faith who do not agree to the government’s view of sexuality as established by the Act.

The budget debates are still going on in Congress and Democrats are still pushing for the elimination of the Hyde Amendment in any budget bills.  This action will reverse a restriction on federal tax dollars being used to fund abortions that has existed since the 1970's.

  On Thursday, July 29th, for the first time in 45 years, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill to provide taxpayer funding of elective abortions for Medicaid recipients. The bill has not passed the Senate. Every Democrat present in the House voted to kill the Hyde amendment. Since 1976, every appropriations bill that passed the House included the Hyde amendment, which bars federal funding of abortion except in rare circumstances. Please contact your  U.S. Senators and your Representative to encourage them to support the inclusion of the Hyde Amendment in all budget legislation
