“Christian” Hate Groups Form Anti-LGBTQ Equality Act Coalition For The Children Of Course

Via NBC News:

A new initiative backed by a coalition of right-wing organizations is courting lawmakers and parents in an effort to stop the passage of the Equality Act — a federal LGBTQ rights bill — and promote policies targeting transgender Americans at the federal and state levels.

Backed by the Alliance Defending Freedom, Family Policy Alliance, Heritage Foundation and other national and local groups, the Promise to America’s Children coalition says it is fighting “a culture – and sadly, a government – around us seek to sexualize our children for the sake of a political agenda.”

On its website, the Promise to America’s Children coalition says anyone who signs the pledge is not signaling support or opposition to legislation, “with the exception of the federal Equality Act, which clearly violates all principles of this Promise.”

This incarnation of the Equality Act was approved by the US House this week along in a party-line vote with 3 Republicans breaking ranks, but the EA faces an uncertain future in the Senate, where it will surely be met with a filibuster effort.

The first version of the Equality Act was introduced to Congress in 1974 by the late Bella Abzug.

  1. How sad it is to see how far some people’s ignorance can go, and to see some of them declare themselves anti-equality.

    Educating and instructing about equality has nothing to do with sexualizing children, and, I don’t even know what “agenda” these extremists are always talking about. I really hope that even with these obstacles, our children can learn to respect differences so that we can have a better future.
