WASHINGTON, D.C., April 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The woke leftists controlling Major League Baseball, major U.S. airlines, and other corporations such as Coca-Cola have displayed their unhappiness with Georgia’s recent voter ID law.
Put aside the stunning hypocrisy of their virtue-signaling claims: Most of these corporations demand IDs in order for citizens to transact with and receive services from them.
Here’s the bigger question begged by their actions: Are there any men left in MLB? Airline cockpits and ground crews? Corporate office suites? Or are there only high-paid geldings, thoroughly neutered by woke ideology?
MLB’s mass emasculation is complete
Last summer MLB put on horrific display as hundreds of professional ballplayers surrendered themselves to the abhorrent ideology of Black Lives Matter (BLM), founded in 2013 by a trio of militant Marxist women – Patrisse Khan-Cullers, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza. Khan-Cullers identifies as lesbian and Garza is “married” to a “transgender man.”
By bending their knees, these atheletes paid homage not to civil rights, but to Marxism; to the destruction of the nuclear family; to transgender and gay political power squashing not just religious liberty, but religion itself; to the defunding of police; and to the erasure of western history and culture.
The queer-affirming women pulled off a mass castration of the players’ Judeo-Christian beliefs and whatever patriotism they held in their hearts.
The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.
But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.
Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.
Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!
This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.
Yes, it's THAT important.
The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.
It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.
It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!
We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!
SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!
And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.”
"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."
"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."
ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:
Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:
"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."
And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.
On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."
The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."
And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"
Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."
It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.
Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

LifeSiteNews opinion and analysis of the so-called 'Equality Act':
And now, MLB has reaffirmed the mass emasculation of its players as the league’s woke leadership moved the All-Star game scheduled to be played in Atlanta, to Colorado in order to protest Georgia’s very sane voter ID requirements. (And as many have pointed out, Colorado’s voting laws are quite similar to Georgia’s just-passed law.)
“Major League Baseball has folded to the liberal mob, stripping Georgia of the All-Star Game and MLB draft and announcing its allegiance to the Democratic Party in the process,” noted The Washington Examiner’s Zachary Faria.
But it was already worse than that: They had already submitted to a tribal right of castration, without a whimper or complaint.
Where are the players and managers who disagree with MLB management’s posturing and demands on the teams and players? Silence indicates agreement. I suspect there are many who disagree. So are there no men willing to risk their jobs by expressing disagreement with the big lies MLB management is foisting on the nation?
No red-blooded American wants to watch a pathetic display of geldings romping around a ballfield, yet this is what the 2021 season promises.
Sacrificing airline safety to woke idealism
The CEO of Atlanta-based Delta Airlines, Ed Bastian, displayed his wishy-washy-woke leadership when, after first praising his home-state’s voting legislation, he crumpled under pressure from liberal elites including Joe Biden, reversed course, and lied about the bill instead, asserting that it “does not match Delta’s values.”
It was another very public emasculation.
“My husband is a pilot for Delta,” one woman posted on social media. “Believe me, they all hate that the CEO has gone woke.”
“Started with BLM and now this. It’s embarrassing and has nothing to do with running a successful airline,” she continued. “The pilots just want to have safe, on-time flights and then make it home to their families after. Please know that thousands of employees absolutely do not support this stuff!”
If this is the case, where are the thousands of Delta Airline employee voices objecting to their company’s woke leadership?
Real men stand up for principles, for country, for family – and speak out. But we hear mostly silence.
Not to be outdone, United Airlines (UAL) joined the fray.
“Our flight deck should reflect the diverse group of people on board our planes everyday,” declared UAL in a Tweet. “That’s why we plan for 50% of the 5,000 pilots we train in the next decade to be women or people of color.”
“No,” objected Matt Walsh. “Your pilots should reflect the absolute best of the best, no matter their race or gender.”
“Nobody is so committed to ‘diversity’ that they’d willingly choose to board a plane piloted by someone who got the job through affirmative action,” added Walsh.
No. Your pilots should reflect the absolute best of the best, no matter their race or gender. Nobody is so committed to “diversity” that they'd willingly choose to board a plane piloted by someone who got the job through affirmative action. https://t.co/RRa1vh5gVc

My father spent his entire career as a UAL Captain. If he were still alive, he would be appalled that the airline he loved is sacrificing safety to woke idealism.
In the video portion of the UAL Tweet, the airline affirmed that “Partner organizations will help identify and recruit top talent.”
Which partners are those? Black Lives Matter? The Southern Poverty Law Center? The ACLU? The Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?
Corporate Communism Lies will continue to dominate the direction of public and corporate policy unless there is fierce pushback from those within their employee and customer ranks who object to our nation’s preening social justice corporate elites.
These corporate executives are posturing their organizations to invite lucrative financial deals with Communist China. In doing so they display contempt for Americans.
When will MLB players stand up to their embarrassing commissioner, Rob Manfred? When will airline employees object to their incompetent corporate leadership, now jeopardizing public safety?
