Guest: Robert Knight, columnist, Washington Times
On Memorial Day Weekend, when we remember the sacrifices made by members of our military and their families to protect the unique individual liberties we enjoy in the United States, such as freedom of religion and speech, a new law euphemistically named the “Equality Act”, already passed in the Democrat-majority House of Representatives, would greatly suppress those liberties.
The Equality Act adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the federal non-discrimination law, which makes it illegal to “discriminate…because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information” (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).
Houston Baptist Professor Robert Gagnon said this about the Equality Act: “It is the most dangerous bill to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion that has ever been proposed on a national level.”
How so? Robert Knight, columnist for the Washington Times, will join us to answer that question this weekend on The Christian Worldview. His recent column “A Misnamed Legal Jackhammer Strikes” examined the Equality Act. We will also discuss how this law is a precursor to China’s new dystopian “Social Credit System”.
