WASHINGTON, D.C., June 29, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — When pressed by a Republican congresswoman to explain how many genders there are, Biden’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona repeatedly avoided her simple question.
Asked by Rep. Mary Miller (R-Illinois) for a third time about the number of genders, an exasperated Cardona said, “I won’t be answering your question.”
The strange exchange occurred during a House Education and Labor Committee hearing on the priorities of the Department of Education.
Miller introduced her question by referring to a handout produced by the Biden Department of Education for students and their parents titled, “Confronting Anti-LGBTQI+ Harassment in Schools.”
The congresswoman pointed to one of the examples of harassment cited on the information sheet: “A teacher telling students that there are only two genders, boys and girls.”
“Before we start penalizing teachers stating a genetic and biological fact about genders, can you please clarify for the committee how many genders there are?” she wondered.
The Biden-appointed Cabinet Secretary was unable to answer.
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':
Biden has previously claimed ‘there are at least three’ genders
In August 2019, during his campaign to become the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominee, Biden himself told a field staffer for the conservative group Turning Point USA that “there are at least three” genders. When she asked for elaboration, he admonished the staffer, saying “Don’t play games with me, kid,” then volunteered, “by the way, first one to come out for (same-sex) marriage was me.”

A lesson from Hollywood for Biden Cabinet Secretaries and other Democrats
In order to save face, members of the Biden Administration might want to take a cue from Hollywood.
In the 1962 film the The Manchurian Candidate, released at the height of the Cold War, Senator John Iselen (actor James Gregory) who is in the thrall of his under-cover communist wife (Angela Landsbury) is troubled because at her direction he has been spreading ambiguous disinformation insinuating that the Department of Defense has been infiltrated by communists.
During their contentious breakfast conversation, Mrs. Iselin finally asks, “Would it really make it easier for you if we settled on just one number?”
“Yeah. Just one, real, simple number that'd be easy for me to remember,” pleaded Sen. Iselin.
The camera catches Mrs. Iselin watching as her husband thumps a bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup onto his plate.
Then the scene quickly switches to Sen. Iselin addressing the Senate.
“There are exactly 57 card-carrying members of the Communist Party in the Department of Defense at this time!” he declares.
A few years ago, Faceboook was certain that there are 58 genders. Healthline.com says there are 64. Not to be outdone, the BBC recently claimed that there are 100 genders.
No wonder Democrats are confused.
However, the “real, simple number that'd be easy to remember” for Democrats is “Two.”
There are precisely two genders.
