Ahead of the Democratic-led House’s scheduled “Equality Act” vote Thursday, the U.S. Conference of Catholics Bishops publicly criticized the bill while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Biden, both Catholic politicians, support the legislation.
Five USCCB chairmen wrote a letter to lawmakers in opposition to the bill.
“The Equality Act purports to protect people experiencing same-sex attraction or gender discordance from discrimination. But instead, the bill represents the imposition by Congress of novel and divisive viewpoints regarding ‘gender’ on individuals and organizations. This includes dismissing sexual difference and falsely presenting ‘gender’ as only a social construct,” wrote the chairmen of the USCCB about the bill. https://lockerdome.com/lad/13088193159312486?pubid=ld-2584-890&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fjustthenews.com&rid=&width=701
The sweeping measure, if passed by Congress and signed into law, would amend federal civil right law in prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and gender identity.
