It is the most important issue the mainstream media refused to talk about during the 2020 election. Not a single debate question on an issue, a proposed piece of legislation, that would absolutely, radically, fundamentally alter our nation.

The Equality Act.

In May of 2019, homosexual conservative Brad Polumbo wrote that the Equality Act would crush religious freedom — and that Trump is right to oppose it.

“From my vantage point as a gay conservative, I can see the Equality Act goes too far for any level-headed gay rights advocate to support, and its blatant disregard for the basic right to religious freedom is appalling,” Polumbo wrote.

We’ve gone over and over and over the Equality Act. It will put a 40-year old man who thinks he is a woman in the bathroom stall next to your 6-year old daughter or granddaughter. It will lead to biological boys taking positions from actual girls on female athletic teams. As Polumbo wrote, the bill would devastate religious liberty. It could require religious medical professionals and faith-based institutions to provide sex-change surgeries and gender transition hormones against their will. Adoption agencies would be threatened. Parents could have their children removed if they do not go along with changing their child’s gender.

It is legalized insanity.

While the election is over, we still do not know who the President of the United States will be moving forward.

President Trump’s administration said that, while it absolutely opposes discrimination of any kind, the Equality Act is filled with “poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights.”

Joe Biden, meanwhile, embraced the idea of sex changes for 8-year olds. Biden promised to make the Equality Act a legislative priority in his first 100 days.

Even if the Republicans maintain a slim majority in the United States Senate, there may be one or two GOP senators who go along with the proposal. Susan Collins, for example, is the only Republican sponsor of the Equality Act.

Keep in mind the court cases surrounding the election may well determine whether America adopts the Equality Act at some point in the near future, or if we have at least four more years of trying to put the brakes on the slide down the slippery slope.

No, we may not start working our way backward, but before we can work back toward traditional values we need to stop the slide we’re currently experiencing.
