Your Faith Will Be Illegal If This Happens . . .

Jun 2, 2021

Are you ready for our faith to be illegal in America? I'm not!

Democrats want to push the dangerous "Equality Act" (HR 5) through the Senate with a vote as early as possible. Their strategy is to sneak this horrific legislation through as part of the massive spending bill.

This extensive legislation is the greatest, most comprehensive threat to religious freedom I have yet seen in America! It would elevate privileges for LGBT conduct above religious freedom in every cultural arena in America—including churches and religious colleges.

But these radical legislators are hoping you will not take action!

I am rushing you this email so you can send an urgent fax right now the Senate. If the so-called Equality Act becomes law, it will cause unimaginable damage to the lives of people of faith in every corner of our nation. Fax the Senate now to stop HR 5. — Mat

Let me explain how the wrongly named "Equality Act" is a threat to you.

It elevates "sexual orientation and gender identity" behaviors to the same specially protected class as race. The best way to conceptualize the far-reaching impact of the Equality Act is expressed in this short sentence: What you cannot do legally respecting race, you will not be able to do legally respecting LGBT or Q. It even applies to your beliefs and perceptions.

It will transform every area of American life—including churches; religious colleges and universities; public, private and Christian schools; curricula; religious and private organizations; employers; employees; individuals; foster care and adoption; shelters; local, state and federal entities; privacy; women's rights, including sports; a single individual providing a product or service online from their home, and more.

It will ban lifesaving counsel to those struggling with unwanted desires or behaviors.

And if you don't bow, you could be sued.

We won this battle in the last Congress by stopping the bill in the Senate. The battle this time will require every vote we can muster. Fax the Senate right now to block HR 5.

Democratic leaders will no longer be satisfied with mere tolerance. "Tolerant?" Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. "That's a condescending word to me. This is not about tolerance. This is about respect for the LGBTQ community. This is about taking pride."

The Equality Act goes far beyond making legislative demands for Americans to "respect" LGBTQ behavior. This bill will result in the wholesale destruction of our freedom, including religious freedom.

To help stop HR 5, our staff is hosting leaders of the Changed Movement at our Ministry Center in D.C. Members of the group, who experienced freedom in Christ, are meeting this week and next with key senators to oppose HR 5. The group is also holding a rally this weekend in the nation's capital.

These voices are a key part of defeating this bill. I have much more to share with you in the coming days. But we need to add your voice to oppose this dangerous bill.

Join us in blocking this radical bill by sending your urgent fax to the Senate.

For the first time since its passage in 1993, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act will not be a claim or defense to HR 5. Every church and religious school and college will be a target under HR 5.

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) stated this bill "is a brazen attempt to replace religious liberties with the identity politics of the moment."

It is imperative that we do not allow this bill to pass. Stand with me today. Send a rushed fax to Congress to stop this dangerous legislation.

Liberty Counsel Action is leading grassroots opposition to this dangerous bill. We were the first voice alerting the public to this threat when it was first introduced two years ago, and we were able to stop it.

But now the stakes are even higher. So, please do not just read this email and think someone else will act. We need each of you to pray and act NOW.

Your financial support allows us to be on the frontlines of the battle for the heart and soul of our nation.

Join our Challenge Grant to DOUBLE your impact to defeat this dangerous bill. Support Liberty Counsel Action today.

I encourage you to pray Isaiah 59:19 for our nation: "When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him."

I invite you to be a part of this crucial battle.

For Freedom,

Mat Staver, Chairman
