Vote No to the Global Respect Act
Imagine an America where the President of the United States can reject the entry of the Pope or religious leaders who oppose same-sex marriage. That sounds chilling, right?
Soon, Democrats in the House of Representatives and the Senate are readying to pass what they call "The Global Respect Act." If passed, the Global Respect Act will do just that.
The only way the Global Respect Act becomes a reality is if Republicans sell out people of faith. That's why we are asking you to sign our petition to Congressman McCarthy and Senator McConnell asking the Republican Caucus to block the passage of The Global Respect Act.
The Global Respect Act is expected to be up for a vote in the House of Representatives and Senate soon.
The passage of this bill comes at the behest of the United Nations. Their recommendation stems from a report in which the United Nations Independent Expert on Violence and Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity said, "States should adopt decisive action when religious authorities, leaders or agents infringe on the rights of LGBT persons through violence and discrimination, including hate speech" (C-fam).
To them, discrimination could be as simple as a religious leader refusing to support a same-sex wedding ceremony.
The past and current focuses are to deny entry to those who have committed genocide, terrorism, and acts of torture. If the Global Respect Act passes, members of the faith-based community will be added to the list next to terrorists, cartels, dictators, and warlords.
It seems that under the Biden administration, the standards for discrimination have expanded to include refusing to participate in a same-sex wedding ceremony, opposing special LGBTQ+ education classes in schools, and refusing to support the LGBTQ+ political agenda. Sadly, the political agenda steering for LGBTQ+ advocacy will be greater than the rights for someone to practice their faith.
We are asking for your signature to Congressman McCarthy and Senator McConnell. Asking the Republican Caucus to block the passage of the Global Respect Act.
