NANCY PELOSI AND ANTI-CHRISTIAN ALLIES IN CONGRESS WILL VOTE TO END ALL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
EUGENE DELGAUDIO, PRESIDENT OF PUBLIC ADVOCATE IN A MESSAGE TO SUPPORTERS SAID (IN PART)
I have been fighting against the Gay Bill of Special Rights for years. But the threat is greater than ever...
Fueled by their victories at the Supreme Court, the radical Homosexual Lobby is using the lessons and tactics they learned from their victories to ram this bill through Congress!
You and I will have to act quickly and decisively if we are to stop this new push by the radical Homosexuals.
If the Gay Bill of Special Rights is allowed to pass, it will enshrine homosexuals as a protected Super-Class.................Please join thousands in opposition to this terrible bill (titled H.R.5 by leftist Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi by signing our petition here. "

Christian Newswire Post follows:
Members of the U.S. House of Representatives introduced a bill that threatens the free exercise of religion and free speech. H.R. 5, known as the Equality Act, broadly imposes the LGBT agenda and does not exempt churches or religious employers, organizations or colleges. It specifically forbids raising religious free exercise as a claim or defense to the LGBT agenda.
This bill amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by striking the word "sex," and inserting "sex, sexual orientation, gender identity" as protected classes throughout the federal code. This amendment applies to employment, housing, rental, public accommodation and more.
Therefore, church leadership and nonprofit faith-based organizations and schools would be forced to hire gender-confused individuals and allow men access to female (or vice versa) restrooms, showers, locker rooms, dressing rooms, shelters, dormitories and sports. This legislation would also create many more victims -- like women in shelters who have been sexually assaulted by a man posing as a "transgender" to gain access to the facility.
Churches that provide weddings or baby showers would be forced to provide the same facilities to LGBT events and "same-sex weddings." Church tax-exemption and college accreditation (including federal student loans) would be affected.
LGBT indoctrination would be required in school curricula and in workplaces, and Christian teachers in public schools would be forced to not only to listen to such presentations but also to make them for students. Private Christian schools will also be affected.
