Action Alert: STOP HR 5

TAKE ACTION TODAY!

Help Stop the “Equality Act”

The “Equality Act” (H.R. 5) would amend The Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity as federally protected classes but the bill would result in a risk to our civil rights and religious liberty.

According to The Federalist, “The act would ban the following locations from “discriminating” against individuals based on sexual or gender identity: a “stadium or other place of or establishment that provides exhibition, entertainment, recreation, exercise, amusement, gathering, or display; any establishment that provides a good, service, or program, including a store, shopping center, online retailer or service provider, salon, bank, gas station, food bank, service or care center, shelter, travel agency, or funeral parlor, or establishment that provides health care, accounting, or legal services; any train service, bus service, car service, taxi service, airline service, station, depot, or other place of or establishment that provides transportation service.

Most importantly, “The bill prohibits the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 from providing a claim, defense, or basis for challenging such protections.” The bill essentially nullifies federal and state religious freedom protections by handing authority to the U.S. Department of Justice to interpret and investigate claims of discrimination.”

Call your U.S. Representative today and urge him or her to vote “NO” on the “Equality Act” (H.R. 5)

VP Pence: “Easy Christianity is Gone”

Watchmen MinistryWatchmen Ministry

(Faith & Freedom) Most know that our Vice President and his wife are deeply committed evangelical Christians, who stand for their faith. Both have been mocked publicly for their faith.

Pence’s speech would not have been given only a few decades ago, but now, it is a must— because it’s a clarion call for what lies ahead.

The bottom line is this: The days of easy Christianity in America are over.  (Read More)

Caught in the Act: What H.R. 5 Means for America

Watchmen MinistryWatchmen Ministry

(FRC) Microsoft won’t just correct your grammar — it’ll correct your ideology too. Thanks to new software, misspellings won’t be the only thing brought to users’ attention. The applications have a discrimination setting now, where people can be shamed for using gender-specific words like “policeman” or “congressman.” It’s all part of the tech world’s subtle liberal wave. But if the House gets its way, it won’t just be the tech world — it’ll be the whole world.  (Read More)

Defining and Defending Religious Freedom

Watchmen MinistryWatchmen Ministry

(Breakpoint) We’ve not seen in the United States, at least in recent memory, so many efforts to force Christians to act in ways that violate their consciences. Almost always, these demands are made in the name of sexual freedom—whether we’re talking about nuns being forced to provide contraception, bakers and florists having to participate in gay weddings, or adoption agencies being forced to place kids with same-sex couples.  (Read More)

This Small Christian School Faces Fines and Jail Time for Its Beliefs… So It’s Fighting Back

Watchmen MinistryWatchmen Ministry

(Alliance Defending Freedom) It’s not a big school – not quite 60 students, grades 6-12. And maybe you wouldn’t expect it to be – offering, as it does, required classes in Latin and Greek, with a heavy emphasis on Shakespeare and Homer, taught by teachers in the traditional Socratic method … questions asked, students engaged, minds and imaginations stirred to life.  (Read More)
