Former Solicitor General Ken Starr argues that the Equality Act is not only a “clear and present danger” to the freedom of Americans’ conscience but also the Biden administration’s “greatest threat” to religious liberty.
Earlier this year, the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives passed the pro-LGBTQ bill by the narrow margin of 224-206. The controversial bill – backed by President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and numerous other Democratic leaders – amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by including “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” in the list of protected classes in education, employment and public places.
The measure has been with the Senate Judiciary Committee since mid-March.
Freedom of conscience would be out the window
Starr – a former federal judge and president of Baylor University from 2010-2016 – warns that the Equality Act ( H.R. 5 ) is at the “very top” of his fears about the erosion of religious freedom in America.
“If enacted, the Equality Act would quash conscientious objections on the part of faith-based individuals,” Starr told Christian Headlines . “… I view the Equality Act as a clear and present danger to something that is foundational to our constitutional order, our religious liberty – and that is freedom of conscience. The coercive powers of the government are going to be boldly expanded if the Equality Act is passed into law.”
The legal expert says that it is not only imperative for laypeople to “speak into the culture effectively,” but for all Americans to be aware of the legal and political battle for religious liberty that is currently being waged against the anti-Christian mandates of the Biden administration. And should the Equality Act become law, Star argues religious liberty will become increasingly rare – as one’s faith will no longer be protected in many legal matters.

“The text of the Equality Act explicitly forbids individuals from using the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA) to sue based on claims within the Equality Act,” explained Christian Headlines, which noted that senators were told that the proposed law would close or punish thousands of religious organizations . “That law […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
