Redefining Equality

“The Equality Act isn’t about protecting people from discrimination.”

The House of Representatives is expected to vote today on the so-called “Equality Act.” This should be called the “Anti-Religious Liberty Bill,” not the “Equality Act.” It should be called the “Anti-Feminist Bill,” not the “Equality Act.”

The legislation is a direct attack on religious liberty. As one Catholic leader put it, the bill is “the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law.” Reverend Franklin Graham blasted the bill as “very dangerous,” adding that it will create lot of “inequality for all people of faith.”

It specifically guts legal protections provided under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. So, churches, religious schools, and other faith-based ministries will be subject to endless discrimination lawsuits from men claiming to be women.

The “Equality Act” undermines the rights of parents and medical professionals, forcing them to deny reality. It also threatens to erase women by “making it illegal to distinguish ‘identity’ from biology and thereby [prioritizes] transgender people over women.”

As Inez Stepman of the Independent Women’s Forum warns:

“The Equality Act would threaten the existence of women’s prisons, public-school girls’ locker rooms, and women’s and girls’ sports teams. It would limit freedom of speech, freedom of association, accurate data collection, and scientific inquiry… The Equality Act isn’t about protecting people from discrimination; it’s about compelling adherence to gender ideology.”
