Radical leftists want to make it clear that a person’s right to unscientifically choose his sex as a she and impose that choice in female restrooms and unfairly compete against real females in athletic events is superior to the First Amendment Rights under the United State’s Constitution which states in part “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”
The leftist H.R.5 titled Equality Act makes it clear that a person’s gender identity is superior to the constitutionally protected free exercise of religion. H.R.5 amendment proposes in part:
“SEC. 1107. Claims.
“The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (42 U.S.C. 2000bb et seq.) 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.”
H.R.5 amendment to SEC. 1107 means gender identity and wokeness trump the First Amendment. Your right to govern your business, your church, your synagogue, your private school by Judeo-Christian values or even real science regarding gender identity will be unlawful.
Violators of this act may quickly find themselves at the very expensive end of defending legal action brought against them by the United States Department of Justice. The Congressional Summary of H.R.5 states in part: The bill allows the Department of Justice to intervene in equal protection actions in federal court on account of sexual orientation or gender identity. H.R.5 also allows the he/she to sue people who violate the law.
H.R.5 would impact far more than just restrooms. The Congressional Summary of H.R.5, provided below, makes it clear that gender identity wokeness would impact all areas of public life including restrooms, domestic violence shelters and any public accommodation that provide exhibitions, recreation, exercise, amusement, gatherings or displays, goods, services or programs and transportation services. If enacted, the Equality Act would empower biological males to compete against females in sports and sports scholarships.
- Churches would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies.
- Churches will lose tax-exempt status for noncompliance.
- Colleges will lose accreditation for noncompliance.
- Noncompliant colleges will be ineligible to receive student loans, causing most religious schools to compromise their core mission or close.
- If churches or religious organizations take overnight trips, including sports or mission trips, they cannot segregate rooms by biological gender.
- Biological men will have access to bathrooms, showers, and nursing-mother rooms at any time, and stay as long as they please.
- Churches would be forced to hire staff involved in LGBT conduct, even positions of authority in affiliated daycare classes and give them complete access to all children in the restrooms.
- Cross-dressers could demand that they be greeters, ushers, Sunday School teachers, and more.
- Even the smallest slight would give someone the legal right to sue the church. For example, if a person assumed they were turned down for a staff position because of a LGBT lifestyle, they could sue the church for damages, even if that was not the reason they were denied the job!
H.R.5 passed the United States House of Representatives by a 224 to 206 vote. It now moves to the Senate, where 60 votes are required to overcome the filibuster, which would bring the bill to a vote.
