Over the past couple months, a bill mislabeled as the "Equality Act" has passed the U.S. House, and is now being considered by our U.S. Senators. Unfortunately, the so-called "Equality Act" actually enforces anti-religious liberty inequalities at the federal level. The implications for Christians would be disastrous and are antithetical to the First Amendment. The bill poses a major danger to medical professionals, children, parents, female athletes, artisans, charities, and other faith-based proponents of traditional marriage and biological sex.
After passage of the so-called "Equality Act" by the U.S. House, we asked Senators Burr and Tillis whether they would support passage of the bill in the Senate. We paid a visit to Senator Tillis’ office and Senator Burr’s office in D.C. and met with one of their staff members in each office hoping to receive some clear statement on where they stand on the mis-named "Equality Act." Staffers in both offices stated that the Senators do not support the "Equality Act". That is great news! We hope that both the Senators will put out statements immediately articulating their opposition to the "Equality Act." What worries us, however, is that Senator Tillis was featured on an invitation for a fundraiser hosted by a pro-LGBTQ gay rights organization because he was "a pro-LGBTQ Republican member of Congress." We were unable to receive an explanation from his staff of this event, even though we were assured that Senator Tillis would not support the "Equality Act" "in its current form."
This much is clear to us: the "Equality Act" has disastrous far-reaching implications across our entire country (and thus all over our state). Under the so-called "Equality Act", everything is defined as a public accomodation, which allows the federal government to coerce all kinds of private institutions.
In short it is a far-reaching anti-religious liberty SOGI law with disastrous implications.
