Democrats Re-Introduce Equality Act in the House

Last week, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives introduced the Equality Act to codify anti-discrimination laws against the LGBTQ community.  The Act was previously introduced in 2019 during the presidency of Donald Trump; it passed the Democratic-run House but was stopped in the Republican-controlled Senate.  Now that the Democrats control the Senate, the House, and the presidency, the chances of the bill passing are significantly higher.

President Joe Biden released a statement Friday, praising the new potential law as “a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all.”  He also said,

The Equality Act provides long overdue federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, locking in critical safeguards in our housing, education, public services, and lending systems — and codifying the courage and resilience of the LGBTQ+ movement into enduring law.

This bill is not at all surprising, considering the president’s recent removal of the transgender military ban, in an attempt to undo the Trump Administration.  President Biden, a self-proclaimed “devout” Roman Catholic, has once again proven to be a “puppet of the radical left.”  This law could present a major threat to the foundational rights of religious liberty in the United States, especially for Christians who believe in the real existence of two, and only two, God-given genders.  As the United States moves further away from the Judeo-Christian worldview under a profoundly liberal administration, biblical faithfulness could very easily become illegal.
