U.S.A. (5-17-19)

H.R. 5: Equality Act Passed House (Senate next):

“Whoever, therefore, wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice introduced…”

“The Equality Act would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, enshrining such nondiscrimination protections under federal law…

28 states still allow discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity on the state level, including in such sectors as employment and housing.”

“Opponents counter that the bill could undermine religious freedom, medical doctors’ practices, and parental rights.’A letter by the Conservative Action Project reads:

“Ultimately, parents’ rights to educate their own children and seek the best medical treatment for them would be undermined… In Ohio, a judge terminated a couple’s custody of their 17-year daughter when they disagreed with the recommendations of a gender clinic and county agency that she take testosterone injections… Medical professionals will be vulnerable to lawsuits if they decline to perform hormonal or medical procedures on patients who identify as transgender”… Under the Equality Act, individuals and institutions could see increased lawsuits for failing to affirm same-sex marriage (in foster care and adoption), make single-sex private facilities co-ed, and use preferred pronouns for individuals who identify as transgender.”

This crime, tho repugnant to every sentiment of decency and delicacy, is very prevalent in corrupt and debauched countries where the low pleasures of sensuality and luxury have depraved the mind…”

Vol. II, pp. 310-311.

If we reflect on the dreadful consequences of sodomy to a state, and on the extent to which this abominable vice may be secretly carried on and spread, we cannot, on the principles of sound policy, consider the punishment as too severe

“Whoever, therefore, wishes to ruin a nation, has only to get this vice introduced…”

Abstain and enjoy.”
