Given over to reprobate minds…

We’re living Biblical times of Romans 1…

A nation turned from God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible & our foundations, the truth…

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20 — King James Version

 

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.

Proverbs 14:34 — English Standard Version

 

if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 — English Standard Version

 

Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die…

Ezekiel 33:11 — English Standard Version

 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9 — English Standard Version

I hope everyone reading this understands the enormity of the consequences if the following bill passes the House and Senate. Decades of passivity, decades of thinking “It can never happen here,” decades of deception, lies and apathy along with idleness — in conjunction with a great national turning from the truth of God, the truth of Jesus, the truth of Scripture and aligning with perversions and misrepresentations, or out and out lies have brought U.S. to where we now are.

Are you prepared for the consequences?

This is NOT about equality whatsoever, but about dominance, about removing the foundations, about making the laws lawlessness, about elevating sexual deviancy, sexual perversion, sexual immorality not equal to what is normal and sacred and of God — but destroying what is normal, sacred and of God and replacing it with these sexual deviances, sexual perversions and sexual immoralities.

Make no mistake.

Do not be deceived. There is nothing equal in this and there is only corruption, lies, deceit and oncoming tearing down of what is right, good, holy and of God and the Holy Bible and had been accepted as right and normal among unbelievers for millennia. All that has changed in the twinkling of an eye in the timeline of history. All changing in favor of these abominations, these lies, these immoral acts and ways of life — all occurring to this point over the past 15, 20 years.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 could not be clearer, easier to discern — no discrimination based on sex meant a woman could not be kept from a job men might also apply for, be trained for. No discrimination based on being male or female. Could not be clearer. Now it’s being perverted, corrupted to mean lesbian, homosexual, bisexual or transgender. And so-called intelligent, rational people are falling into lockstep behind this corruption and perversion of the law to elevate and legitimize sexual deviances, sexual perversions, sexual immoralities and the breakdown of all foundations — which is the intent — not equality as stated.

Being a sexual deviant, a sexually immoral person is not a civil right.

Going against the Word of God is not a civil right.

Woe to U.S.!

Severe judgment is coming upon U.S. unless we repent. As individuals, as a nation. Unless we turn to corporate prayer, unless we repent and turn back to God and His ways, His teachings, His Son, His inerrant Word.

House approves sweeping bill to expand homosexual rights

Posted @ 1:15 p.m. EDT on Friday, May 17th, 2019 by the Associated Press:

 

WASHINGTON — Democrats in the House approved sweeping anti-discrimination legislation Friday that would extend civil rights protections to lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender people by prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The protections would extend to employment, housing, loan applications, education, public accommodations and other areas.

Called the Equality Act, the bill is a top priority of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said it will bring the nation “closer to equal liberty and justice for all.”

Sexual orientation and gender identity “deserve full civil rights protections – in the workplace and in every place, education, housing, credit, jury service, public accommodations,” Pelosi said.

The vote was 236-173.

House set to approve sweeping bill to expand homosexual rights

WASHINGTON — Democrats in the House are poised to approve sweeping anti-discrimination legislation that would extend civil rights protections to lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender people by prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The protections would extend to employment, housing, loan applications, education, public accommodations and other areas.

Dubbed the Equality Act, the bill is a top priority of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who said it will bring the nation “closer to equal liberty and justice for all.”

Sexual orientation and gender identity “deserve full civil rights protections – in the workplace and in every place, education, housing, credit, jury service, public accommodations,” Pelosi said.

A vote on the bill is scheduled for Friday.

The legislation’s chief sponsor, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said it affirms fairness and equality as core American values “and ensures members of the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgender and queer community can live their lives free from the fear of legal discrimination of any kind.”

Cicilline, who is homosexual, called equal treatment under the law a founding principle of the United States, adding “It’s absurd that, in 2019, members of the lesbian, homosexual, bisexual and transgender community can be fired from their jobs, denied service in a restaurant or get thrown out of their apartment because of their sexual orientation or gender identify.”

Most Republicans oppose the bill and call it another example of government overreach. At a news conference Thursday, they said the bill would jeopardize religious freedom by requiring acceptance of a particular ideology about sexuality and sexual identity.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., called the legislation “grossly misnamed” and said it is “anything but equalizing.”

The bill “hijacks” the 1964 Civil Rights Act to create “a brave new world of ‘discrimination’ based on undefined terms of sexual orientation and gender identity,” Hartzler said. The legislation threatens women’s sports, shelters and schools, and could silence female athletes, domestic abuse survivors and other women, she said.

A similar bill in the Senate has been co-sponsored by all but one Senate Democrat, but faces long odds in the Republican-controlled chamber.

President Donald Trump is widely expected to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. An administration official who asked not be identified, because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the president’s intentions, said the administration “opposes discrimination of any kind and supports the equal treatment of all. However, this bill in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights.”

Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., called the House bill “horrifying” and said it could cause Catholic schools to lose federal grants for school lunches or require faith-based adoption agencies to place children with same-sex couples.

Some critics also said the bill could jeopardize Title IX, the law prohibiting sex discrimination in federally funded education programs. Former tennis star Martina Navratilova co-wrote an opinion piece in The Washington Post urging lawmakers not to “make the unnecessary and ironic mistake of sacrificing the enormously valuable social good that is female sports in their effort to secure the rights of transgender women and girls.”

Neena Chaudhry, a lawyer for the National Women’s Law Center, said the bill does not undermine Title IX, because courts have already found that Title IX protects against gender-identity discrimination.

“It is way past time to fully open the doors of opportunity for every American,” said Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., one of the Senate bill’s lead sponsors. “Let’s pass the Equality Act, and let us rejoice in the bells of freedom ringing for every American.”

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine also supports the bill, while Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is the sole Democrat who is not a co-sponsor.
