Evangelist Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse is speaking out against the Equality Act asserting that, if passed, it will diminish religious freedom.
In a Facebook post on Monday, Graham explained that the measure, despite the positive-sounding name, is “deceiving” and “has nothing to do with equality.”“It’s just a smokescreen to force Americans to accept the LGBTQ agenda and it creates a lot of INEQUALITY for Christians and all people of faith,” he warned. “It punishes individuals and organizations that disagree based on their moral convictions.”
“If passed into law, the Equality Act could prohibit religious organizations—Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim, all—and churches from hiring only like-minded people who believe what they believe,” he continued.
Graham added that the legislation would “destroy women’s and girls’ sports in this country” in favor of biological males self-identified as female “to compete for titles, scholarships, and recognition at all age levels.”
“Ask Senators to vote NO on the Equality Act—and PRAY for God to move in the hearts of these legislators and open their eyes to see the dangers looming before us,” he concluded.
