Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are about to begin debating the so-called Equality Act -- legislation that is a clear and present danger to religious liberty.
The Equality Act would literally force Christians to violate their religious beliefs on issues like marriage and sex. Todd does a deep dive into the legislation in today's podcast.
"We cannot allow claims of religious freedom to be used to discriminate against an LGBT individual," Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI) said.
Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, said no institution or person of faith would escape the Orwellian reach of the law and predicted a "catastrophic loss of religious freedom in America."
"It is an egregious attack on the freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs. It would position the government to lord over churches and other faith-based institutions, dictating potentially who they hire, how their facilities are used, and even punishing them for not falling in step with a view of human sexuality that directly contradicts orthodox biblical teaching," Perkins said.
