Biden Vows to Pass ‘Equality Act’ During His First 100 Days in Office

by Mary Margaret Olahan


Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden promised to pass the Equality Act during his first 100 days of office if he becomes President of the United States.

The former vice president also vowed in an interview with Philadelphia Gay News that he will make LGBTQ equality a focus of United States diplomacy if he becomes president of the United States, Reuters reported Wednesday.

“I will make enactment of the Equality Act a top legislative priority during my first 100 days – a priority that Donald Trump opposes,” Biden told Philadelphia Gay News, according to Reuters.

The House of Representatives passed the Equality Act in 2019, the publication reported, but Biden would need Democrats to be in control of both the House and the Senate to pass the legislation.

President Donald Trump’s administration, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation, has said the Equality Act would “undermine parental and conscience rights,” according to Reuters.

Catholic bishops have warned that the legislation would “first and foremost” negatively impact women and girls.

“The Equality Act would fortify regressive, sexist stereotypes by enshrining the notion that subjective feelings and preferences (such as hobbies, attire, emotional patterns, or style of interaction) are what define a woman or a man,” reads a United States Conference of Catholic Bishops backgrounder on the Equality Act.

“By redefining ‘sex’ without physical meaning, the Equality Act would also remove legal recognition of women and girls, such as in Title IX, and risk eviscerating their hard-won consideration in areas including student scholarships and athletics,” the backgrounder continues.

    GODLESS Marxist/Bolshevism considers ITSELF to be God.
    Therefore there ARE no God Given Rights as is amply demostrated by their murderous ENSLAVEMENT of their own People under EVERY-ONE of their regimes. Under Communism/Socialism You are the Property of the STATE, not a Child of God.

    Your Rights do not come from the Constitution. Your Rights come from Our Creator, and the Constitution was written to SUPERVISE, REGULATE, and CONTROL government actors. The 9th and 10th Amendments help make it ABUNDANTLY clear to even the DENSEST of intellects that we truly have NO “Constitutional rights.” What we have(at the risk of being redundant) is Constitutionally-SECURED rights, but these rights are ONLY as secure as:
    a) the honor and integrity of those taking the oath, and
    b) the ability of the People to COMPEL obedience on pain of perjury charges and removal from office.

    Christians seem to be indifferent to the fact that any attack against our Liberty is an attack against the God who gave us Liberty. In other words, it is an attack against our Faith.
    our Creator’s Law, which is what endows every American with the UNALIENABLE rights we enjoy, among those Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, exactly as it states in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence:­ “We hold these truths to be self­ evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed BY THEIR CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    That which distinguishes CHRISTianity from the tribal faux religions is the human suffering and appeal to the downtrodden as opposed to Judaism and Islam with their appeal of conquest and oppression of non-members . Christianity was the religion of Slaves and the Poor because it promised Grace and Humanity.
    The claim that “All religions are the same” is foolish.
    . Christ made NEW by telling those who would listen that the law was in their hearts (i.e. the spiritual spark of divinity is in each and every one of us).
    The United States of America is the only nation in human history established by mostly Christian people, founded upon 2,000 years of Christian thought, Reformation preaching and NEW Testament Biblical Natural Law principles—and dedicated to the purpose of religious and personal liberty and equal justice under the law. This truth is easily observed within America’s earliest history. Seventeen seventy-six represented the culmination of thousands of years of western civilization and the triumph not only of spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason.
    Destroy Christianity …. to destroy all Human RIGHTS
