Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
No on the "Equality" Act!
Amog bad laws the democrats want to impose on America, this ranks at the top of the list!
The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the so-called “Equality Act.” It now goes to the Senate for consideration. (All 4 Republican Representatives from AZ voted "NO.") It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally need to hear from you!
The Equality Act adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
This means that almost no area of American public life—including education, employment, public accommodations, housing, medical care, non-profits, and federal funding for example—will be left untouched.
The Equality Act:
We need your help! Contact Senators Sinema and McSally today to voice your opposition to the Equality Act, H.R. 5. Ask them to oppose the Equality Act. Make your voice heard!
I share with some of my friends that it is too bad that the chosen phrase "separation of church and state" had not instead been, "separation of state from church" or "separation of state from interfering in church".
The State controls most of the Churches today by using the IRS rules so they can keep the tax exempt status they have, this has bound most of them from preaching the message of Morality as laid out in scriptures as most of them covet $$$$$$$$$$$ more than they do the Truth that the American Church helped to gain us in the American Revolution.
So like it or not far to many churches and members have allowed the IRS to control the message that has also led to the Decline of Morality in the U.S. and as we all know our Founders stated it would take a Moral People to Retain Our Republic, and for the most part it's easy to see by those in charge Morality has disappeared with the Doctrine of Better of Two Evils in almost every race we vote in and the proof is in the pudding with the Votes in DC on Equality and AZ with Sex Ed Bills voted 4 by many GOP Reps.

Van, I agree with the IRS issue and churches.
We have a regressive government and most who pass and enforce these laws are part of the problem and we must be energized to remove them from office as well as change the church back into what it was created to do.

I forgot to look at your comment on a right to kill a child in the womb. Clearly there is no right to this as you know. The constitution was written to reinforce the Declaration of Independence for then and for the future. The second paragraph says "we hold the truths to be self evident". Self evident refers to what all people should know as right or wrong, a "higher law" or law of nature, not man's law, but one in which we use to judge right or wrong and to measure against man's laws. Our laws and the constitution are of a moral value, not a political one. Politicians have to have a moral will to speak up when they know something is wrong. This is a fallacy of our political system because those in office lack strength to stand up or have a weak moral character.
This is the duty of the people. The Declaration of Independence is a clear embarkment on a moral and just government that the people delegate to elected bodies to exercise on our behalf. WE have to take action when we are faced with issues so egregious it shocks the conscience, and this certainly does.
It's not just better to prevent a problem than try to undo the damage. In court? Costly, forever, may lose. STOP it now. The dems are salivating over this because it means one more way to capture the kids.
What are laws worth? The dems break them publicly every day with no consequences. The laws on the books are good for one thing: when someone sues and the courts rule according to the constitution. Which is rare these days. Much better to keep bad, awful laws like this off the books to start with.
Miniscule instrumentalism results in monumental changes to the moral compass of our nation. That was the agenda of the progressives in the 1920's and 30's and is today with an amoral sexual prevision. Our nation is not, and has never been a nation of being "just and fair" for all. We are a nation of OPPORTUNITY for all. So what makes anyone think otherwise ... the media pundits ... who tell lies often enough to give the appearance of a truth. No morals = no principles regardless of what the semantics may be. The leftist progressives violate laws daily for their "ends justifies their means", so read between the lines as to the intent of the matter.
Desparte Dems more pandering and they are frauds. They are acting like a starving hyena stocking for food.
