If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Especially if your cause is advancing sexual deviancy.
But the sponsor of that bill, open homosexual Rep. Patrick Maloney, was back again last night, adding the bill as an attachment to an energy bill, of all things. With the traitorous complicity of 43 “pro-family” Republicans, Maloney’s amendment passed 223-195.
It enshrines an executive order President Obama issued in 2014 which requires everyone who does business with the federal government to bow at the shrine of sexual deviancy.
There is only meaningless rhetorical language in the bill to provide any religious protections at all for people of faith. And so every federal contractor will be forbidden to base hiring decisions on the faith-based mission of his organization, even if it is a non-profit organization working with “the least of these.”
In other words, the cost of doing business with the federal government will be to run the entire Constitution through the shredder, starting with the First Amendment and its religious liberty protections.
Rep. Maloney exulted when the bill passed. “Equality wins!” he tweeted.
Hardly. This is not a win for equality at all. It is a win for homosexual supremacy. Those who tell you that this is just about equality for everyone are either grossly self-deceived or are telling you a bald-faced lie.
If a bill like this goes into law, homosexual supremacy will triumph every single time there is a conflict between religious freedom and sexual deviancy. Sexual anarchy will reign supreme and standards of sexual normalcy will be sent to the landfill along with the people who believe in them.
There can be no peace and no compromise between the homosexual agenda and religious liberty. They cannot coexist. Every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. Every piece of turf sexual jihadists take they take from turf where the flag of religious freedom once flew.
This bill can still be defeated when the entire bill as amended comes before the House. But we must all face the stark reality that America must choose between religious liberty and sexual tyranny. Last night, Republicans chose poorly.
