No on the Equality Act! Make your opposition heard!
Rather than solve a problem, H.R. 5 opens up Pandora’s Box:
It threatens the fundamental freedoms of speech and religion
It could force faith-based charities, non-profits, and schools to operate contrary to their religious beliefs concerning human sexuality, or risk punishment or loss of federal funding.The language of the bill overrides the religious protections found in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This means that when alleged cases of discrimination involve religious beliefs, religious freedom loses.It threatens privacy, safety, and opportunities for women and girlsBiological men claiming to identify as women will have access to women-only intimate spaces like locker rooms, bathrooms, showers, and women’s shelters—giving easy access to sexual predators.Title IX, which is supposed to make sure women have the same opportunities as men, including in sports, would be gutted as men identifying as women could claim these opportunities. Currently men identifying as women are displacing women in sex-specific sports in high school and college.It threatens parental rightsParents could lose custody of their gender-dysphoric child if they do not support their child’s desire to take puberty blocker and cross-sex hormones.Public education would be legally required to teach and operate in line with transgender ideology, regardless of parental opposition.Human sexuality and gender are best left open as matters of national debate. Instead of treating disagreement as if it were discrimination, Americans of all walks of life must strive to peacefully coexist even when we don’t see eye-to-eye. Imposing one perspective on the entire nation is not the solution.So, please oppose the Equality Act!
