#LGBTQ Americans still face discrimination in employment, housing, & other core areas of life in more than half of the United States. @HouseDemocrats will set things right by voting to pass the #EqualityAct this week. pic.twitter.com/Utv6cJCzUi— House Committee on Rules (@RulesDemocrats) May 15, 2019
No American should be fired simply because of who they are or who they love. But for #LGBTQ Americans in many states, that threat is a reality. It’s time to finally put an end to end this discrimination by passing the #EqualityAct. #HR5 pic.twitter.com/KukVtT6C2t— House Committee on Rules (@RulesDemocrats) May 14, 2019

This week the U.S. Supreme Court took three employment cases regarding sexual orientation and transitioning identity. LGBT advocates fear the Court will not side with them and are intensifying efforts to pass HR 5 (“Equality Act”).
Congressional members and staff are returning to D.C. after their Easter vacation. Will you help me fight this bill with your financial support today? -Mat

Dr June ,
The Human Rights Campaign (an LGBT group) has increased its efforts to pressure legislators to pass HR 5 because of the following three high court cases.
• A skydiver, Donald Zarda, told a female jumper not to worry about being strapped to him because he was homosexual. After her boyfriend complained to Altitude Express, Zarda was fired. The skydiver sued before his unfortunate death in a 2014 base-jumping accident. The lower court ruled that “sex” includes “sexual orientation.”
• Gerald Bostock claims he was fired from his job as a child welfare services coordinator when his employer found out he is homosexual. The lower court ruled that “sex” does not include “sexual orientation.”
• A male funeral director demanded to wear skirts to work and said he identified as a “woman.” The company said “the employee’s actions would violate the company’s sex-specific dress code and disrupt the healing process of grieving families.” The lower court ruled that “sex” includes “gender identity.”
These are huge cases, and with the change in the Court, LGBT activists fear they will lose. They want to pass HR 5 before the Court rules. Liberty Counsel Action is on the forefront of this battle. We are exposing the damage this bill will cause.
Supporters of this bill are trying to eliminate exemptions for religious freedom under the heavy foot of the LGBT agenda. We need your prayer and financial support to keep fighting this.
We led the charge to oppose Chai Feldblum’s reappointment by President Trump to the EEOC. Only a few groups were willing to even raise concerns over her radical views. Feldblum was famous for seeing the zero-sum game between religious freedoms and LGBT, and she worked to push these privileges. We were able to stop her reappointment and neutralize the EEOC from being an arm of the LGBT agenda.
Now this case is before the U.S. Supreme Court. It was pushed under Feldblum’s leadership and she used your tax dollars to get it there. (I will be working hard on these court cases through Liberty Counsel.)
We were again the first to expose HR 5 and educate on the dangers of this bill.
Please send this email to like-minded friends. This is a critical battle. We can win if we work together.
Chairman, Liberty Counsel Action
P.S. Our nation’s capital is now having multiple battles between religious freedom and LGBT. HR 5 must never be enacted!
