I would like to  bring to your attention some significant federal legislation called The Equality Act (H.R. 5).  The bill has already been approved in the House and is up for consideration in the Senate. If it becomes law, it will force Americans to conform to government-mandated beliefs about human sexuality and undermine the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom.

Although the Equality Act claims to fight discrimination, it does the opposite by punishing the Catholic faithful, health care institutions, religious communities, and others with beliefs on human sexuality and marriage that aren’t government-approved. The government becomes god, in defining human sexuality and what is good and evil. The consequences of this legislation passing would be dire for millions of Americans.

I urge you to contact your senators and speak out against the Equality Act. Please have them visit https://www.cocatholicconference.org/news to do so. Thank you for helping defend the Church.
