Biden howling hate at Christians for the Human Rights Campaign

House Democrats pass the Equality Act – here’s what it means to Bible-believing Christians

I’m just going to cut and paste some information for you from recent articles I found at Alliance Defending Freedom and The Federalist.

Here’s an article from The Federalist to explain the bill.

Adoption agencies:

Unhappy with the restrictions on eligibility that Catholic and other religious adoption agencies put on families looking to take children into their homes, the act seeks to nationalize Massachusetts, New York, and California’s outright bans on religious adoption agencies’ right to operate according to conscience. Never mind that there are any number of secular adoption agencies with no traditional marriage guidelines; shutting down the organizations that invented adoption, the bill states, will “increase the number of homes available to foster children.”

Sex-specific businesses:

Salons, too, will not be able to “discriminate” based on biology, opening the door in the United States for the Canadian nightmare where Jessic4 Y4niv — a man who identifies as a woman while still being attracted to women — sued to force female nail salon employees to wax his privates. You don’t have to be a woman to understand the level of sexual assault implicit in an adult man demanding a woman handle his privates for money or risk the force of law.

Christian-owned organizations: (businesses, churches, schools)

Remember Masterpiece Cakeshop’s Jack Phillips? In 2017, after five years of fighting the Colorado baker won a Supreme Court battle establishing his right to abstain from services he opposed on religious grounds. Four years later, however, he is still embroiled in an unending stream of lawsuits and complaints brought by radical gay and transgender activists (and even a Satanist). The Equality Act would take the treatment Phillips has received over his views on marriage and gender, and nationalize it. Virtually no businessman would be exempt.

Christian charities:

Nor will the Little Sisters of the Poor’s hard-fought-if-fleeting legal victories be safe. According to the Equality Act, religious nurses, doctors, and hospitals unwilling to kill an unborn child or perform a potentially mentally destabilizing, deeply invasive, medically unsound sex-change surgery could be legally discriminating.

While the Little Sisters were able to beat back their antagonists — who were led by President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Department of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra — using 1993’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, this last line of defense would be useless against the Equality Act.

“The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993,” the act reads, “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.”

And of course religious schools will have to teach what the secular left believes. And religious organizations won’t be able to hire people who actually believe in their religious mission.

Finally, I found this ADF article about abortion of all things:

The “Equality Act” states that “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition [which includes abortion] shall not receive less favorable treatment than other physical conditions.” It also specifically eliminates conscience protections provided by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act for those who object to participating in abortions.

Here’s what that means:

  1. The “Equality Act” could require doctors and hospitals to commit abortions—even if they have religious or moral objections.

  2. The “Equality Act” offers no protections for employers who conscientiously object to covering abortion in their health care plans, leaving the door open for abortion advocates to argue that the Act requires them to provide abortion coverage.

  3. The “Equality Act” could require the federal government and recipients of federal funding to cover abortion in their health care plans—all at the taxpayer’s expense.

I’ve been paying a lot of attention to the bill since 2015, because I believe that this bill will basically end public Christianity in the United States. I don’t see how you can be a champion of chastity or natural marriage if these views cannot be expressed. Your job will be threatened if you believe these things. Christian organizations will be threatened for believing these things. Christian businesses will be threatened if the owners believe these things. Remember, in Canada, a Christian law school was punished for requiring students to avoid sex outside of natural marriage. That was deemed “anti-g4y”, and the law school lost its accreditation in several provinces.

The reason I follow this is because I know that a lot of Christians have a very different view of Christianity than I do. They don’t want to defend Jesus’ teachings on sexual morality and marriage. They want to show “love” to their non-Christian neighbors. And by “love” they don’t mean a love that tells the truth. They mean a love that is acceptance of sin. Participation in sin. Celebration of sin. We’ve made a lot of Christians like that. They almost never know what the secular left has planned for them with laws like the Equality Act.

My job as a Bible-believing Christian is to tell you the truth and remind you that your job is not to show “love” (i.e. – agreement with) to non-Christians. Your job is to show love to Jesus, and share the truth to non-Christians in a loving way. Treat them with respect, but don’t agree with them. That’s not good for them, and your job is to do good to them – not to agree with them.

Please pray and take action:

Contact your U.S. senators and ask them to vote NO.

    1. I don’t think they’ll pay a price for it. Piper isn’t a worldview Christian. He’s always been hyper-emotional. Such people inevitably base their views on peer approval rather than truth.

    1. Yeah. My biggest thought about the election was how could evangelical trump-haters have misled so many Christian voters. Why are they leaders at all? I mean Beth Moore and Russell Moore and David French. Etc.

  2. The modern church today does their best to be relevant to non-churchy people. I can understand this strategy, considering Scripture teaches us to become all things to all people for the sake of the gospel (1 Cor. 9:23). We should overcome our traditions and idiosyncrasies in order to meet the culture where they are and help them understand why a relationship with God is important.

    However, being culturally relevant doesn’t equate to changing the foundation of sin, repentance, faith, and the core doctrines of the Judeo-Christian worldview. These pillars of the faith are non-negotiable. It is my hope and prayer that Christians remain bold, speak the truth in love, and see the light of Christ magnified in this dark world. Blessings!

  3. I’ve been seeing a number of states becoming second amendment sanctuaries – crazy what things have become in this country. The states may want to consider becoming first amendment sanctuaries now too.

  4. For some jobs like a baker you can adjust with less issue. In that case I would make a cake if forced. But I would recommend they get another cake because I can do a low quality job if I chose and put in no effort.

    When forced to as a Christian I can meet basic legal compliance of the law and nothing more.

    As a doctor or an officer I would start to not feel well if I was asked to do something that violated my rights. You do not have give anymore information to people then that. And treat all review boards as hostile enemies by assuming they will twist your words to new meanings so don’t trust them at all.

    As long as you make no public acknowledgement as to why you don’t do something when you face tyranny they are limited in what they can do

    1. Yeah, the police and military are already so LGBTQPWXYZ compromised that it is nearly impossible for an authentic believer in Christ to participate in those professions. Not completely, I know a few, but very difficult. Also true for public school teachers and much of the criminal “justice” system.

      The medical establishment is already nearly completely pro-abortion. There were nurses fired for not assisting in abortions back in the Obama days – fortunately back then, they were allowed to sue and get compensation. New medical students these days are being forced to learn how to do abortions.

      Everything about the Left these days is fascist – their victims include 63 million murdered innocents and now transgendered children. The Western “civilization” Left make Nazis look like saints by comparison. Luke 17:2 is the Eternal future of these reprobates.

        1. Very true. The government is their “god” – it is all they have, other than “mother nature” of course.
