ALERT: Equality Act 2.0

Jul 7, 2022

The so-called “Equality Act” is back, but this version is even worse. Introduced last week in the U.S. House, the “Transgender Bill of Rights” already has 86 co-sponsors.

H.Res. 1209 would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and it also includes abortion. This will not just infringe on religious freedom—it will completely obliterate it.

This goes far beyond destroying religious freedom. It will harm parents and children, employers, landlords and every person in America by forcing them to celebrate and even prefer LGBTQ and abortion. Rush your urgent fax to Congress to block the Equality Act 2.0. — Mat

The “Transgender Bill of Rights” would apply to employment and “the full range of places and services that members of the general public utilize.”

This resolution will do all the following, and more:

  • Force female students to have biological males in their sports, bathrooms, showers, locker rooms and all private spaces.

  • Force religious organizations, churches, employers, childcare and schools to hire LGBTQ staff, pay for opposite sex hormones and surgeries, including abortion.

  • Force families who rent out a room in their home to include LGBTQ individuals.

  • Force religious hospitals and medical professionals to perform these surgeries, including abortion.

  • Force “ethical health care” by especially recruiting doctors to perform surgeries to cut off healthy body parts and perform abortion.

  • Silence professional counselors from helping people overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors and gender confusion.

  • Eliminates gender on some state and federal documents and allows for “X” to replace M or F on identification documents.

This one resolution mandates federally forced abortion and LGBTQ special privileges—all rolled into one.

WE NEED EVERY VOTE AND EVERY VOICE. We need your voice NOW to send a strong message. STOP this resolution from becoming law with your urgent fax to Congress now.

This resolution creates a brand-new liaison office under the U.S. Attorney General to punish anyone or anything in opposition to this radical agenda.

Additionally, it provides that office with an unlimited budget. The resolution states it is “appropriating the funds necessary to fully staff and support the enforcement of these rights across agencies.”

Imagine a small country church declining to hire a man parading around in women’s clothes. After this resolution, one quick complaint will bring the Office of the United States Attorney General knocking on the church’s door, asking questions, threatening legal action, filing litigation and terrifying the pastor and parishioners if they do not bend the knee.

This resolution will cause devastating harm across America. WE MUST STOP THIS "BILL OF RIGHTS"! Send your faxes to Congress to stop the Equality Act 2.0 from endangering our children and our nation.

This resolution prohibits “discrimination” that is “actual or perceived” regarding gender identity or sex characteristics. This language is so broad that it could apply in situations where someone does not have to be LGBTQ or transgender and/or they don’t have to be discriminated against—they just have to feel slighted!

Under this resolution, a complaint can be filed even if there is no reality to back up the complaint. In other words, a person can file a complaint simply to harass you because there is no objective standard behind the “perceived” discrimination that is not “actual.”

This places incredible power in the hands of someone who, by definition, has a tenuous grasp on reality. Then this resolution will use perception as the basis of what is illegal in the eyes of the law.

Liberty Counsel Action is fighting this second verson of the Equality Act on Capitol Hill.

If passed, this resolution would be added to both federal employment and public accommodation law. It will impact everyone! And it includes both LGBTQ and abortion!
