Alert: Stop Religious Persecution – Call Your Legislator Today!

URGENT ALERT:
Vice President Pence’s Religious Persecution Warning is Already Here!

Hoosiers know that our own Mike Pence is one of the best orators in Washington, DC.  It was no surprise to hear the positive reviews the Vice President received from his commencement speech at Liberty University on Saturday.   If you have not read about this, you can watch his outstanding address here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XwJ_xgRliE

The Vice President warned the graduates of America’s largest Christian university that if they live out their faith in a Biblically consistent manner, persecution is to be expected.     This is a truth every discerning Christian should understand today.  As Christ said in John 15:20, “A servant is not greater than his master.  If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”

Here is one of Pence’s comments:

        “Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs.  So, as you go about your daily life, just be ready.  Because you’re going to be asked not just to tolerate things that violate your faith; you’re going to be asked to endorse them.  You’re going to be asked to bow down to the idols of the popular culture. . .”

His words are prophetic.   This week, the US House is expected to vote on H.R. 5, the misnamed “Equality Act.”

As my national office has warned, “The deceptive “Equality Act” is a religious liberty wrecking ball.”

It would be hard to imagine a more anti-freedom bill than this one. This legislation would allow the government to discriminate against people of faith, bypassing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and forcing people to violate their consciences or face the full weight of state punishment.  I have often said that LGBT stands for “Let’s Get Behind Tyranny.”   H.R. 5 is proof of where the sexual anarchy agenda is going.

Here are just a few of the many problems H.R. 5 could cause if enacted:

  • H.R. 5 would force Christian schools, ministries and churches to change their employment policies that are aligned with traditional teachings on sex, gender, and human sexuality.

 

  • H.R. 5 would force many faith-based organizations to pay for abortion in their health care plans by creating a right to demand abortion coverage from health care providers.

 

  • H.R. 5 would harm faith-based charities, such as adoption agencies, that believe in natural marriage and strive to place foster or adoptive children with a mother and father.

 

  • H.R. 5 would embolden those in Indiana who have been attempting to destroy our school voucher system by undermining the teachings of Christian schools on sexual behavior that have employment policies consistent with those beliefs.

 

  • H.R. 5 threatens the privacy and safety of women and children by forcing genderless bathrooms and showers upon sporting facilities, parks, rest areas and other public amenities.

        Your US Representative needs to hear from you today.  Here is a list of the Indiana House delegation. Do not assume that your member will vote for or against this dangerous legislation.  Please contact them anyway.  Ask them to protect religious freedom by voting “No” on H.R. 5.
