Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. But that is not what the Equality Act, which has now passed the U.S. House of Representatives and is being actively considered in the Senate, does. In reality, it is an Inequality Act.
Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some church halls to host functions that conflict with Christian beliefs.
Connecticut’s current congressional delegation is so deeply hostile to faith and family that our action alerts rarely focus on them. But this issue is so big that we cannot afford to ignore it. No matter how far gone our Senators seem, Blumenthal and Murphy must hear from Connecticut citizens who wish to retain the rights that have been ours since the nation’s founding.
