FRC: Ask Jesus To Stop The Destructive Equality Act

The Family Research Council is telling their supporters to ask Jesus to stop the “destructive” Equality Act. From their prayer of the day:

“U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) have introduced the “Equality Act” (S. 1858 and H.R. 3185). This is really a deceptively named, “supercharged” version of the rejected Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Like ENDA, it would provide special privileges and benefits to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered persons by incorporating sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity into laws regarding employment. But this proposed legislation will go much farther, encompassing laws governing public accommodations, public facilities, public educational institutions, private employment, housing, credit, and jury selection. It would change over twenty-five provisions of the U.S. Code. The Equality Act would also effectively require high schools to allow boys in the girls’ locker rooms, strip elementary schools of authority to dismiss teachers who transition from one sex to the other during the school year, family-owned businesses would be required to affirm such behavior, and religious hospitals would be required to provide sex-change operations. The bill would prevent Christians and others from objecting on religious grounds and seeking protection based upon their belief in natural marriage. May this destructive bill never see the light of day in either chamber! (1 Cor 6:8-10; Eph 5:11; 2 Tim 4:2 ; 1 Jn 3:8; Jude 22-24)”
