The People Groan
Proverbs 29:2 asserts, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan (NKJV). On February 26th the house passed the “Equality Act.” This legislation has nothing to do with equality. As Dick Morris, political advisor for President Trump stated on Newsmax, “This bill puts trans people above women. I think Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Bella Abzug, and even Betty Friedan, and maybe Gloria Steinem would be really repulsed by this. It's not equality. It's supremacy of trans."
Conservative law makers are rightly framing this bill as, “Equality Act vs. religious communities and religious liberty." This bill will remove the protections of the First Amendment for churches Christian colleges and schools, Christian adoption agencies and virtually every Christian institution. We need to pray that there are enough God fearing, Christian lawmakers that will vote their faith and not their party! Our nation’s survival depends on Democrats who will vote out of their love for God and country and not succumb to pressure, threats, or bribes from their party leaders and/ or others.
Equally concerning is the 1.9 trillion-dollar spending bill erroneously called, “The Pandemic Relief Bill.” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. Called the bill “bloated, unfocused, and entirely partisan.” McCarthy also claimed that only 9% of the bill had anything to do with pandemic relief. 91% of the almost 2-trillion dollars is basically a relief bill for special interest groups and a bailout for Blue States and governors who kept their economies shut down, schools closed, and people shut in.
We need to pray these two bills and future bills like them (i.e. stacking the court, the “Green New Deal,” federalizing fraud in elections, etc), will fail to pass the Senate. America’s future depends on it!
