OPINION: Radicals in Congress Promoting Passage of the Equality Act Have Picked a Fight with God

god

WASHINGTON, DC, June 23 — We have to admit that it’s pretty gutsy of the progressive socialists in Congress to pick a fight with God. But that is just what they’ve done by using their flimsy majority in Congress to seek enactment of the Equality Act of 2021– a law that would challenge the notion that when He created life on earth, God mistakenly made only male and female versions of human beings.

The House passed H.R. 5, the Equality Act, a couple of months ago, and the Senate is slated to take up the legislation soon. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/5

The U.K. enacted a similar law not so long ago, and attorney Wendy Murphy, an adjunct professor of sexual violence law at New England Law|Boston, says it has resulted in some pretty dodgy results.

In a recent Opinion article in the Boston Herald, Murphy told that: “A woman in the U.K. named Maya Forstater was recently punished by her university for saying there are only two sexes. Another U.K. woman is being criminally charged for publicly saying that sex and gender identity are different, and a law student in Scotland who said out loud in a class that ‘women have vaginas’ was investigated by her school for violating the civil rights of trans people.”

The fact of the matter is the majority of Americans were brought up to treat people with dignity because it is the right thing to do.

And those that discriminate must face consequences. But the proposed law goes way beyond enforcing discrimination laws; it would create an Orwellian nightmare, particularly as regards belief in God and God’s laws. For example:

  • Churches could be faced with fines if they have separate restrooms for men and women
  • Church-sponsored shelters would be required to let men who decide to call themselves women to have access to shelters for women survivors of domestic violence
  • Church-based facilities such as schools would be required to hire those who have an LGBTQ lifestyle [Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and those who call themselves Transgendered and those who are questioning their sexual orientation]

HR. 5, it should be noted, is an equal opportunity offender that imposes its own interpretation of religion, whether it be Evangelical, Jewish, Catholic, Mormon, Muslim, or any religion that is based on the notion that human beings are either men or women.

Do we care? A new Rasmussen-Summit.org survey shows that Americans do care big time. The poll found that “82% of Likely U.S. Voters think freedom of religion is important to a healthy American society, including 67% who say it’s Very Important.”

Dr. Jeff Myers, president of Summit Ministries, pointed out that, “This research affirms that the American people overwhelmingly support the continued protection of the Constitutional right of freedom of religion, and oppose policies requiring churches and faith-based charities and organizations to compromise their deeply-held religious beliefs. Yet, leaders in Washington, DC, are aggressively pushing forward on legislative measures such as the mislabeled Equality Act, which specifically strips away religious freedom protections. In an era of hyper-partisanship, freedom of religion retains broad, bi-partisan support among Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.”

Perhaps one of the most insidious aspects of the Equality Act is how it might impact our children. The Heritage Foundation scrutinized the legislation and found that schools will be required to enforce new sexual orientation and gender-identity rules, such as allowing boys and girls to share bathrooms. More important, says the Foundation, “Counseling that has proven to help children suffering from gender dysphoria reconcile with their bodies will no longer be considered an acceptable approach. This means that parents will be left without therapeutic alternatives that do not cause irreversible harm to their children’s bodies.” The Foundation noted that “A judge in Ohio terminated the rights of parents who opposed administering testosterone to their underage daughter and wanted her to go to counseling for gender dysphoria instead.” So HR-5 is another wolf in sheep’s clothing designed to look like a Bill that appears to protect Americans from discrimination but creates hurdles for people with gender issues as well as nullifying religion and God’s Law.

The purposes and mandate for public education presuppose that a person does not have an innate right to be stupid or ignorant. To “follow the science” must require that what is, factually, known to be true is the basis for informed action. As a recent, public phenomenon, having been allowed the, also, recent creation of terminology to describe them, trans-genderism, a condition not found to exist, biologically, in nature, as it has no purposeful relevance to sexual identity, is a psychological orientation which denies pre-determined, biological, sexual identity, reality, as a choice. That is the science. Human beings tend to form natural prejudices and to discriminate based on the logic of behaviors which are, historically and factually, normative, purposeful, beneficial and appropriate, fulfilling criteria of morality and ethics, substantiating and defining “legal.” Indeed, a parsing of the word “identity” as “id” and “entity” means a being with an “id”, the “characteristics of which are: unorganized,demanding and insistent, illogical, lacks morals, instinctual, selfish, unconscious.”
Any or all of these characteristics would be considered reasons for regulation and correction and education since each is, socially, unacceptable, as a choice.

“The danger to our America is not Joe Biden but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the tyranny of a Biden presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a misguided electorate willing to have such a man for their president.  
 The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Biden, who is a mere symptom of what ails our Nation.
Blaming the Prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast accumulation of fools that made him their Prince!
The Republic can survive the tyranny of a Joe Biden, who is, after all, merely a fool. 
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

I see a disturbing storm cloud on the horizon that is approaching in the very near future! Along with the wolves in the DC henhouse there are far more serious “Enemies Within” It is being called “trumpism after Trump” being led by those Never Trump RINOS! Doing what ever they can to maintain their “gravy train” by maintaining their FAK E Republican identity while destroying the successes of his term. We HAVE “The Enemy inside the gates” and the deck is stacked!

We need to start righting the wrong that was bestowed upon us in November, instead of waiting until 2022. It will be too little too late by then

You do not pick a fight with God….he will win every time. He is going to punish America for the sinful and perversion that we now have….it is coming and it will not be pretty.

Agree, Wanda. Dr. David Jeremiah believes that the rapture will come in his lifetime. And I’m fine with that!

No one has the right to push their beliefs onto another. We had to take the Ten Commandments out of public buildings because it offered the non believers, can no longer pray in school, well the same goes for these people trying to indoctrinate their immoral life styles onto children or any one else. Christians are supposed to crave in for what is considered sinful and put a minority of people above God’s teachings, I think not.

It is clear that the DC Communist mob wants to cut religion out of our society. Communism cannot allow allegiance to anyone except the Communist leader i.e. Beijing Biden in our case. Their push to indoctrinate our children and change all of our culture is ruining our country, Praying to God did not help in our last election and the evil forces via cheating on many levels won out. (I am not giving up on praying.) Our only hope of stopping this fast decline into Communism is to make certain we can get a fair, free election in 2022.

Praying to God ALWAYS helps. Your answer is not the same as His. In due time.

I wish God would hurry up and put an end to the devastation Biden, Harris, Soros, Pelosi, and the rest of the lefties have caused. As I get older my patience is running thin.
