URGENT: "Equality Act" Comes to the Senate

Jun 19, 2020

Yesterday, Senators tried to pass the "Equality Act," which would unleash a horrific attack on religious organizations, churches, and every person.

The procedure they are using is a verbal "Live Unanimous Consent" on the floor of the Senate to bring the so-called "Equality Act" to a vote. That means radicals only need one moment without verbal opposition from the floor to pass this bill which has heinous ramifications. Remember, this bill already passed in the House.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a "Roe v. Wade type" of cultural-shifting ruling supporting sexual anarchy. Now the Senate is working to pass the even more radical "Equality Act" that will expand the federal government into every corner of our lives and decimate religious freedom for churches and religious groups.

Now is the time to act. We must swiftly rise up to fight against this bill or we face losing our freedoms for generations to come. Send your fax today to the U.S. Senate to oppose this shocking bill. - Mat

We are just a few votes away from Washington D.C. enacting the most outrageous and expansive bill ever to come out of Congress that will be used to force every person to fall in line with a radical LGBT agenda. The bill would also repeal the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which the Court said in its Monday ruling would still protect religious employers. Right now, we must fight for our freedom and our children more than ever! This bill will do all of the following and much more:

  • Biological men will have access to women's bathrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers, and nursing-mother rooms at any time. They can also stay as long as they please.
  • Cross-dressers could demand that they be greeters, ushers, Sunday School teachers, and more.
  • Pastors would be forced to officiate same-sex ceremonies.
  • Religious establishments would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies and even baby showers or lose tax-exempt status for noncompliance.
  • Churches and religious schools would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBT conduct, even to visible positions of authority, and give them complete access to all children, even in the restrooms.
  • Churches and religious colleges will lose tax-exemption and accreditation if they do not bow to this radical agenda.
  • If taking overnight trips with children, including sports or mission trips for schools or churches, you will not be able to separate people sleeping in the same room by biological gender.
  • Religious schools would be forced to hire professors and staff involved in the LGBT agenda. Staff will be forced to use biologically false pronouns and room biological males in the girls' dorms.
  • From kindergarten, children will be taught that they can choose their gender and will be encouraged to experiment with each other.
  • And too many other things to mention here. See the full list on our webpage

The "Equality Act" (HR. 5 / S. 788) would apply to nearly everyone—to all businesses, religious non-profits and schools, churches, all the way down to online, at-home businesses, home-based daycares ... and the list goes on. This bill demands that every person in our nation bow the knee to the whims and wishes of those who are sexually confused—or face devastating consequences. Please understand, this is far more than employment.

I'm asking you to get involved right now to stop this bill! Send your urgent fax right now to fight this from becoming law.

We are just a few votes away from Washington D.C. making it illegal to live out your faith in America. Right now, we must fight for our religious freedom and for children more than ever!

There are more than 100 corporate sponsors pushing this legislation, including groups like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Visa, Wells Fargo, Amazon, S&P, and Nationwide!

I want to challenge you—please do not sit by while every person is threatened by this radical bill.  Stand with me and fight for the rights given to us by God. Liberty Counsel Action needs your best gift right now to help fund the extra work needed to fight this onslaught of anti-religious bigotry.

LCA is making it easy for you to fight this with just a few clicks to send a fax to the desks of every single U.S. Senator. Start your urgent fax right now before the weekend gets here.


Radicals on the Senate floor know that they just have to find one moment to slam this bill through. Already this legislation has 46 Senate co-sponsors, including Republican Susan Collins. The procedure they started to use yesterday only needs the verbal assent and/or silence of everyone currently on the floor for Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) to pass this egregious bill.

And let me remind you, this bill has NO EXEMPTIONS for religious freedom—none for churches or other houses of worship—and religious schools and organizations will have to fall in line or face not just exorbitant court costs and damages settlements, but also face permanently losing their tax-exempt status and accreditation.

Democrats are very close to outlawing your religious freedom to honor God with your speech and actions ... and some Republicans are helping them do it. HR 5 will force every person in our nation to bow the knee to the whims and wishes of an intolerant agenda—or face devastating consequences. Fight back with a fax now.


Liberty Counsel Action supporters were the first to be alerted to this battle last year. Your prayers and actions were critical to halting this legislation.
