What is the HR5 Bill more commonly called
by Mark David Smith
John Craig brought a news report on 6/1/19 that I just couldn't
ignore. Once I played his report on this thing called the 'Equality Act' I played it again to see if I had heard John right. I did. My reasoning went a thousand different ways, but mostly I thought, 'This bill will hurt us peoples who are not L's, B's, G's, T's or any other acronymical reference more than this bill will help those people that I just mentioned.
I do not have a discriminate bone in my righteous body. I do understand though, that because I am a 100% Caucasian/male, my racial/gender self has never experienced any kind of discrimination. So, how would I know what these peoples are going through, with all that discrimination because of how they want to live their unrighteous lives.
After hearing John's news report, I googled and googled and googled anything anybody had to say or document on this HR5 Bill. Actually after reading just the brief basics of the bill, any righteous person would shutter to believe there are people on this planet who would even consider such a thing. At this point I know really believe in UFO's and hope one of them will come to take me and my family away from here to a better planet. any planet has to be better than this because I can't fathom anything lower.
Here is the wording of the brief basic bill:
Passed House of Representatives (05/17/2019)
This bill prohibits discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity in a wide variety of areas including public accommodations and facilities, education, federal funding, employment, housing, credit, and the jury system. Specifically, the bill defines and includes sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation.
The bill expands the definition of public accommodations to include places or establishments that provide (1) exhibitions, recreation, exercise, amusement, gatherings, or displays; (2) goods, services, or programs; and (3) transportation services.
The bill allows the Department of Justice to intervene in equal protection actions in federal court on account of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Protections against discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin shall include protections against discrimination based on (1) an association with another person who is a member of such a protected class; or (2) a perception or belief, even if inaccurate, that an individual is a member of such a protected class. The bill prohibits the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 from providing a claim, defense, or basis for challenging such protections.
The bill prohibits an individual from being denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual's gender identity.
