    Is the reported support for the Equality Act crumbling before our eyes?

    .

    See: What America really thinks of the Equality Act

    July 15th, 2021

    In March, Gallup reported on Americans viewing LGBTQ civil rights more favorably. Another survey conducted by Hart Research for the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group, indicated 70% of Americans support the Equality Act. And, finally, a Public Religion Research Institute survey found 82% of Americans approve of “laws that would protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations and housing.”

    But a recent national survey organized by Big Ocean Women, United Families International, of which I’m a board member, and feminist thinker Natasha Chart now calls into question the meaning of that widespread support.

    The article goes on to point out “… there is a sizable disparity between the public’s endorsement for the perceived benefits of the Equality Act and its actual outcomes for women, girls and religious adherents should the act become law.” Of course, the public’s support for the Act is directly traceable to the love affair our mainstream media has with promoting the Act, and its failure to report the devastating consequences of the Act for women, girls and religious adherents should it become the nation’s “rule of law”.

    The Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people, and thus, to this degree, the Act is an attempted usurpation of legislative power not granted.

    Fair polling questions confirm dwindling support for Equality Act

    .
    See Poll: Voters Hate The Equality Act When They Hear What It Actually Does


    JUNE 24, 2021


    ”While a majority of voters like the sound of the Equality Act, the same voters overwhelmingly oppose its provisions when they find out what it would do, according to a new national survey of 3,000 likely voters by United Families International and Big Ocean Women. The survey, which boasts a margin of error of less than 2 percent, was weighted to match the demographics of the 2020 presidential electorate and focused on women’s privacy and safety.”


    It’s absolutely amazing to learn when poll questions are finally asked reflecting the devastating consequences which the Equality Act would have upon women and girls, support for the Act falls like a rock!

    Equality Act threatens women's privacy rights

    .

    See The Equality Act would lead to the death of women’s rights


    Surely women have a right to private sleeping quarters in a women’s shelter. But not according to Anchorage’s non-discrimination policy, nor according to the Equality Act.


    The article goes on to point out the Equality Act “. . . threatens women’s sports, shelters and schools, silencing female athletes, domestic abuse survivors, mothers, teachers, physicians.”



    The ringleaders behind the Equality Act have been very clever at presenting the Act as necessary federal legislation similar to that adopted to end distinctions in law based upon race. But unlike the Civil Rights Act of 1875 ___ intended to establish equal treatment of all men before the law ___ the Equality Act is not about asserting equal treatment among mankind before the law. The Act is a bold attempt to forbid the public at large to make distinctions in their daily social, religious and commercial activities to avoid sexual deviant behavior, expressions and proclivities which are found to be offensive by some, and participated in and enjoyed by others.



    The absurd and obnoxious idea is to elevate and classify sexual deviant behavior, expressions and proclivities into a “federally protected class”, and use the muscle of our federal government to forbid the States and public at large to make distinctions and choices in their daily lives to avoid sexual deviant behavior, expressions and proclivities, found to be offensive and/or immoral.



    There is no “live and let live” and “freedom of choice” thinking in the Equality Act. It is designed to compel total submission to sexual deviant behavior, expressions and proclivities, regardless of how offensive they may be, religiously or otherwise. And that is sickening.

    Backers of the Equality Act promise it does not threaten women’s rights, but …

    With regard to female athletes, they are already suffering from the insane thinking which the Equality Act would make a "federal rule of law".

    See: Judge sides with trans athletes against girls who just want fairness

    "Trans activists and their allies like Judge Chatigny are determined that trans persons won’t feel bad. That’s admirable. But “not feeling bad” isn’t a right guaranteed under law. Fairness and equality, ideals that are enshrined in law, should bar athletes with male bodies from competing against those with female bodies.

    The whole edifice of American antidiscrimination law, including Title IX, rests on there being a meaningful bodily distinction between the two sexes. Remove that foundation — and the justice of antidiscrimination law crumbles."

    The absurd, irrational and obnoxious thinking behind the "Equality Act" is to use man-made law in a perverted manner to overrule what nature has created . . . Adam and Eve.

    In response to the call to pass the Equality Act

    .
    See Why it’s so urgent to tell Senators to pass the Equality Act now!

    “The Equality Act seeks to secure gender identity and sexual orientation as protected classes under the federal Civil Rights Act and would ban discrimination against LGBTQ people in nearly every aspect of American life, from the workplace to housing and the marketplace. Last year, the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County established protections for LGBTQ people under federal law, prohibiting discrimination against LGBTQ people in the workplace on the basis that anti-LGBTQ employment discrimination is sex discrimination.”

    What the advocates of the “Equality Act” ignore is, Congress was never granted authority to forbid distinctions in state law being made based upon “sex”, other than the Nineteenth Amendment. Adding “sex” to the 1964 Civil Rights Act as a subject matter was a usurpation of power not granted. And now, the advocates of the Equality Act want to further ignore the defined and limited powers granted to Congress and allow Congress to usurp more power and forbid the public at large to make distinctions in their daily social and commercial activities, not only between men and women, but based upon sexual behavior, expressions and proclivities, even though Congress has never been delegated legislative authority over “sex” in the first place with respect to such legislative restrictions.

    Let us never forget the Fourteenth Amendment nowhere prohibits a state making distinctions in law based upon gender or age. Nor was it intended to.

    Are we to ignore the fact that it took the Nineteenth Amendment to forbid the right to vote to” be denied or abridged . . . on account of sex”?

    Are we to ignore the fact that it took the Twenty Sixth Amendment to forbid the right to vote to those eighteen years of age or older to be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age?

    Are we to also ignore the fact that the people specifically and wisely rejected the Equal Rights Amendment for generations granting legislative power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” forbidding distinctions being made based upon “sex” ___ the last rejection to grant such legislative power was in the 1980s, and the proposed amendment which was rejected by the American people reads as follows:

    'Article–

    'Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

    'Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

    'Section 3. This article shall take effect 2 years after the date of ratification.’

    The dirty little secret of those advocating Congress to adopt the “Equality Act” is, they cannot gain the necessary public support as required under our constitution’s amendment process to accomplish their goal, and so, they encourage Congress to usurp such power and be done with it. Is it not crystal clear these people are some very dangerous people indeed, and reflect the very kind of people our Constitution was designed to protect us from?
