WASHINGTON, D.C., March 31, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A White House official announced Wednesday that, in honor of “transgender day of visibility,” President Joe Biden would raise a “transgender flag” at the White House, making Biden the first U.S. president ever to recognize the “celebration.”
The announcement came from White House Director of Political Strategy & Outreach Emily Ruiz, who wrote on Twitter that the president said, “Today, we honor and celebrate the achievements and resiliency of transgender individuals and communities” in part by raising the “transgender” flag.
Biden released a separate statement, marking the 12th instance of the occasion, Breitbart reported. “Transgender Day of Visibility recognizes the generations of struggle, activism, and courage that have brought our country closer to full equality for transgender and gender non-binary people in the United States and around the world,” he said.
Continuing, the president asked that “all Americans” might “join in the fight for full equality for all transgender people,” and lauded so-called transgender people for their “trailblazing work” in pushing people who suffer with gender dysphoria to live “authentically,” (in other words, in accordance with their delusion and not their nature).
“This hard-fought progress is also shaping an increasingly accepting world in which peers at school, teammates and coaches on the playing field, colleagues at work, and allies in every corner of society are standing in support and solidarity with the transgender community,” the president added. He warned of the “crisis of violence against transgender women, especially transgender women of color,” or rather against men who believe themselves to be women.
Biden used the opportunity to push the so-called Equality Act, a legislative move that would not only write transgenderism into federal civil rights law but compel medical professionals to commit abortions and transgender surgeries, and expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. To this end, Biden stressed that “we must pass the Equality Act,” providing what he called “long-overdue Federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.”
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':
The U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed the bill in February, and it now awaits a judgment from the Senate.
Biden has previously thrown support behind the trans lobby, stating that the peculiar rights of “transgender” activists are human rights. “Let’s be clear,” he said, “transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time. There is no room for compromise when it comes to basic human rights.”
Late in the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden consolidated his position on the “transgender” issue, making the startling claim that children as young as 8 years old ought to be encouraged in deciding to transition from male to female, or vice versa.
“The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides, ‘you know, I decided I want to be transgender, that's what I think I'd like to be, it would make my life a lot easier’ – There should be zero discrimination,” he stated.
At the same time, Biden promised to overturn all Trump-era executive orders related to transgenderism. “I will flat out just change the law,” Biden said at the time, promising to “eliminate those executive orders” as his “number one” priority.
Keeping true to his word, a January 20 executive order from Biden (on his first day in office) aligned federal administrative policy with the Supreme Court’s infamous Bostock ruling last year, which will force women’s athletic programs, restrooms, and locker rooms to accept gender-confused males. The order extends into the classroom, granting biological males access to girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and sports teams, overturning the Trump administration’s protection of girls’ sports.
