“Our Congress is considering what is called the Equality Act, a massive exercise of irony.

Jeffrey Kirby, pastor of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in South Carolina and a senior contributor at Crux.

WASHINGTON, — The U.S. House of Representatives voted 224 to 206 today to pass the “Equality Act,” which would write transgenderism into federal civil rights law, compel medical professionals to commit abortions and transgender surgeries, and expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.
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.
