The radical Left is determined to force Americans to adopt their views on a wide range of issues.
“Tolerance” and “acceptance” are oft-used buzzwords, but their true goal is to ostracize or criminalize anyone who disagrees with them.
And Franklin Graham just issued a dire warning about one dangerous piece of legislation the Left wants to ram down our throats.
Earlier this year, the House of Representatives passed the so-called “Equality Act of 2019.”
The bill would overturn long-held constitutional protections of religious freedom, from which Franklin Graham warns the “nation may never recover.”
The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity” among expressly recognized “non-discrimination” categories in “public accommodations” (the definition of which would be dramatically expanded); and force employers of 15 or more people to recognize their claimed “gender identity,” forbid them from “discriminating” based on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,” and mandate transgender “access” to sex-specific facilities.
In the July-August issue of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s “Decision” magazine, Graham writes:
The progressive left has ascended into a national political power that presents a clear and present danger to our basic religious liberties and freedoms. They despise anyone who is pro-life and mock all who hold to a Biblical worldview.
. . . these progressives are driving a piece of legislation termed the Equality Act, which gives unprecedented rights to transgenders and homosexuals . . .
The progressive, Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has already passed this atrocious bill, and only the Republican-controlled Senate and the president stand in its way. If the Senate majority changes or if enough Republican senators change their position, it would be up to the president to veto the bill. And if that office were to change hands in 2020, I have little doubt this would become the law of the land.
This legislation will have catastrophic consequences for competitive sports, along with churches and faith-based nonprofits who would lose all protections to hire people who adhere to their Biblical statements of faith. Christians will be persecuted for their sincerely held beliefs as never before. The clear teachings of the Bible on the sins of homosexuality and abortion will no doubt be considered “hate speech.” It will be a nightmare from which this nation may never recover.
The critical 2020 elections will be here before long.
As Franklin Graham notes, the outcome of just a few races could radically determine the direction the country heads.
