Thank you for signing our Proclamation for Morality. The language in HR 5 threatens to hijack civil rights by equating sodomy with race and biological gender. Not only will this mean same-sex showers and bathrooms are a civil right, but it will criminalize any Christian quotation of scripture that opposes LGBTQ+ behavior.
The threat to free and religious liberty is evident in the following phrase within the body of the bill:
“The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 shall not provide a claim concerning, or a defense to a claim under, a covered title, or provide a basis for challenging the application or enforcement of a covered title.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has made HR 5 one of her top priorities for this political section.
Please review this message from Jonathan Alexandre of Liberty Counsel which further explains the threat (below): https://youtu.be/w3o41jYmD58
We are launching a “call-in” campaign targeted at the Republicans and a select few Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. Please find attached a listing of Congressmen to contact and express your disapproval of HR5. It is critical that we act right now! Please call each Congressman’s office below and ask them to vote NO on HR5!
Thank you for standing with us on this most important issue.
