In May of 2019 I was working in the White House when HR5 was up for vote. I was so disappointed when the evangelicals were silent about it. I tried to ask them for an interview and they turned it down. I tried to ask them “How are you advising the President?” The day the bill was voted in by the House, President Trump went LIVE on Fox News to declare he was OK with same sex marriage. I was appalled! It failed to go through Senate, but I read the entire bill to the Bride. It is terrible. So many terrible implications. This bill will utterly shut the church down.
The bill, passed 224-206, would expand on last year’s Supreme Court ruling that the Civil Rights Act bans employment discrimination based on sexual or gender identity. A version of the Equality Act passed the House in the last Congress, but the Republican-controlled Senate never brought it up for a vote.
House Discusses Equality Act
According to The Hill:
The House on Thursday passed the Equality Act, a sweeping civil rights bill that expands protections in education, housing, employment and more to LGBT people.
The bill would also prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in credit, jury service and public accommodations.
Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) reintroduced the legislation, which passed the House in 2019 but never moved in the Senate. The bill, which passed the House on Thursday by a vote of 224-206, faces an uphill battle in the upper chamber, where GOP support is needed to reach the 60-vote threshold.
What This Means to the Church:
If the President passes this, it will mean the church will no longer exist. I mean the true church. I will explain more when we focus on this document (if it passes Senate). It is terrible on every level.
