It seems June may be an ideal time for Democrats in Congress to push the extreme Equalit Act as far as possible.

According to Liberty Counsel, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer may use a special provision to push the Equality Act straight to the Senate floor. This would allow the bill to bypass all committees and makes the bill alive, eligible to be voted on at any minute.

“This is not just a horrific threat to religious liberty; this is a full assault against you and every person and institution,” wrote Mat Staver, chairman of Liberty Counsel. “This bill is designed to elevate the LGBT & Q agenda, make abortion a federal right and punish anyone who will not promote them.”

Staver warned that the “Q” in LGBTQ includes about 550 sexually deviate paraphilias — including pedophilia. Those will all become a protected class under the bill, he said.

Cosmopolitan states: “Queerness is an umbrella term that is both an orientation and a community. … The vagueness of the term is intentional— queer is an identity created for anyone outside of the heterosexual norm and meant to be inclusive.”

LGBTQ Nation wrote that the Q can signify other sexual orientations and gender not covered by the acronym’s preceding letters.

If you’re gender-neutral, non-binary, agender, genderfluid, pansexual, asexual, solosexual or something else not covered by LGBT, the Q has got you covered,” it wrote.

B4U-ACT is a “collaborative effort of mental health professionals and people who are attracted to children or adolescents.”

The goal is to “educate the public regarding issues faced by tehse individuals.” The new term for pedophile is a “minor-attracted person.”

“And this bill is sitting on the Senate floor waiting for a vote at any moment to give special privileges and legal protections for ‘Q,'” Staver wrote. “Do not sit on the sidelines while radicals twist our nation’s laws to abuse children and people of faith.”

Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican who cosponsored the Equality Act last year, has withdrawn her support from the same bill.

Staver said Democrats lack the 60 votes necessary to pass the bill, which is why they are looking for ways to “sneak” it through on a majority voice vote.

“Every minute of every day we need one person on the floor to object,” he wrote. “That objection will force a full vote for cloture that needs 60 senators.”

The Equality Act will also ensure biological men can destroy women’s sports and have entry to their restrooms, locker rooms, dressing/shower rooms and shelters. It will force churches to provide equal access to LGBTQ ceremonies if the facilities are open to natural marriage ceremonies.

Churches and religious schools would be required to hire staff involved in LGBTQ conduct, give men access to restrooms, locker rooms, showers and sports, allow boys to bunk with girls on camping and overnight trips and provide insurnce to cover hormones, mutilating surgeries and chemical and surgical abortions.

Noncompliant churches and schools will lose federal, state and local tax exemptions and accreditations. Beginning Pre-K, children will be taught they can choose their gender and will be encouraged to experiment with each other to find their “identities.”

Pregnancy centers will also be forced to provide abortion referrals.
