Ahead of the presidential election, Democratic nominee Joe Biden has vowed to use his hopeful presidential authority to shred federal religious liberty protections in the name of fighting “hate.”
Last week, Biden lamented to the Philadelphia Gay News that President Donald Trump has allowed anti-LGBT “hate” to thrive by protecting certain religious liberties.
“Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given hate against LGBTQ+ individuals safe harbor and rolled back critical protections for the LGBTQ+ community,” Biden complained. “By blocking the ability of transgender individuals to openly serve their country, denying LGBTQ+ people access to critical health care, proposing policies allowing federally funded homeless shelters to turn away transgender people and federally funded adoption agencies to reject same-sex couples, and failing to address the epidemic of violence against transgender people — particularly transgender women of color — the Trump-Pence Administration has led a systematic effort to undo the progress President Obama and I made.”
Biden denounced faith-based homeless shelters, adoption agencies, and other nonprofits and charities who refuse to affirm same-sex marriage, transgender identity, pointing to the controversial Equality Act he has vowed to pass should he ascend to the presidency.
“It’s wrong to deny people access to services or housing because of who they are or who they love,” he went on.
“The idea of ‘religious freedom’ as a reason to allow discrimination has stoked divisiveness in this country,” the outlet asked Biden. “What can we do as a country to ensure that discrimination against LGBTQ people, no matter how it’s justified, does not happen?”
“Trump has deliberately tried to gut protections for the LGBTQ+ community by creating broad religious exemptions to existing nondiscrimination laws and policies that allow businesses, medical providers, and adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ+ people,” Biden answered.
“We need to root out discrimination in our laws, institutions, and public spaces. Religion should not be used as a license to discriminate, and as president I will oppose legislation to deny LGBTQ+ equal treatment in public places,” Biden concluded. “I will immediately reverse discriminatory practices that Trump put in place and work to advance the rights of LGBTQ+ people widely.”
Saints, it’s here. Election day is finally upon us. At this very moment, scores of Americans who claim to be Christians are swarming to the polls in order to vote for Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee. They are willfully blind to the fact that every single ounce of liberty they hold dear will be forfeit under their chosen candidate.
If you know a brother or sister in Christ determined to vote for Joe Biden today, show them this article and urge them to reconsider. It is not only their own liberty they are voting away—but yours as well.
