March 17, 2021 (Family Research Council) — This week, the Washington Post was forced to majorly correct its January 9 report on President Trump's phone call with a Georgia elections investigator. The article's headline read “'Find the fraud': Trump pressured a Georgia elections investigator in a separate call legal experts say could amount to obstruction.” In other words, one of America's largest newspapers publicly claimed that the sitting president had committed potentially criminal misbehavior.

House Democrats cited Trump's alleged pressure on Georgia election officials in their article of impeachment against Trump, and they cited The Washington Post article itself in their impeachment brief and during televised oral arguments. The only problem is, “they made up quotes,” as CNN commentator Mary Katherine Ham tweeted. Trump never said “find the fraud” in his Georgia phone call, as The Post had boldly reported.

The Post, which last destroyed a sitting president nearly 50 years ago in the Watergate scandal, has spent the last four years with the rest of the mainstream media wishing Trump would misstep so they could destroy him, too. But, barring real evidence, it seems any fake scandal will do. The news media during Trump's term in office has paraded out one spurious allegation after another – Russia collusion, a Muslim ban, “very fine people,” kids in cages, Ukraine corruption, insulting veterans, and now the Georgia hoax. Almost all these stories prominently feature, insinuate about, and repeat ad nauseum claims by anonymous sources, secret documents, or outright lies.

The media's only false claims about Trump that have been squelched are those where documents released later proved their original reporting to be false. Still, a retraction never gets the airtime of a lie, so it's usually too little, too late.

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.

Thank you!

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.

ON LIFE:

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!

The Post's January 9 story and their retraction “two months after publication” is no different. In the 130-word correction, they admit “The Post misquoted Trump's comments on the call, based on information provided by a source.” That is, an anonymous source. They continue, “Trump did not tell the investigator to 'find the fraud' or say she would be 'a national hero' if she did so” –  fake quotes that made the original story lively. Trump's actual comment was that the investigator would find “dishonesty” in ballots in Fulton County if she looked. For the record, Fulton County's election results have also been called into question by a superior court judge, the Georgia Secretary of State, and the Democrat-controlled Fulton County Election Board. Trump also told Georgia's top election investigator that her job – verifying the election – was “the most important job in the country right now.”

There used to be a perception that journalism was a rigorous profession, reporting cold, hard facts verified by multiple, on-the-record sources, because it used to be true. But today's postmodern culture has rejected the very notion of absolute truth, replacing it with the idea that any truth claim is really an attempt to exert power over someone – an idea from critical theory that is friendlier to a Marxist worldview. Sadly, the mainstream media, which has fully ingested this worldview, will continue to promote their political agenda through brazenly false narratives. They will do this without remorse and without consequences, because they are telling their readers what their itching ears want to hear.

In a perfect world, the Post's misleading reporting would earn “Four Pinocchios.” But if we lived in a perfect world, we would need no “Pinocchio” system. The Washington Post ostentatiously displays a banner reading “Democracy dies in darkness” above every story. If only they could be bothered to bring the truth to light.
