The U.S. House has passed H.R. 5 — the “Equality Act.” If this bill is passed into law, protections for men and women, the way God created them, will be eliminated. Men will not just be allowed, but protected by law, to use female restrooms and to compete in female sports in all public arenas including the church. It will also criminalize speaking out against LGBT references as it applies to gender confusion ideology — literally, making teaching biblical principles against the law. We also have bills filed in Texas — S.B. 1540, H.B. 3860, H.B. 4111, and H.B. 445, attempting to advance similar agendas.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution begins, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof …”

Frank Pomeroy is the pastor at First Baptist Church Sutherland Springs and 2022 candidate for Texas Senate.
