Heed the Warning: the Equality Act is a Threat to Religious Liberty

H.R. 5, the so-called Equality Act, would amend civil rights laws that bar discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and nationality to include “gender identity” and “sexual orientation.” If the measure becomes law, it could impinge on the First Amendment’s religious freedom and free exercise clauses.

Pastor Stephen Broden said the bill “is a clear violation of our constitution.” The measure essentially would nullify the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, a bill introduced by Senator Chuck Schumer and signed into law by Bill Clinton. This same law protected Hobby Lobby after it sought an exemption to the Obamacare contraception mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the Christian retailer’s favor.

  1. Pastor Broden is 100% correct. With or without the follow-up legislation, the Constitution states that our Creator has given us certain rights, which includes FREEDOM OF RELIGION. In fact NO FURTHER LEGISLATION is necessary.

  2. The Left will never tire of attacking Christianity and will come at it from all directions. We have to be constantly vigilant and ready to identify and nullify their cheap tricks. Just remember, no matter how innocent it might look, if it comes from the Left it serves the Leftist agenda in some way.
