At times the abject hate is darkly amusing.

It is difficult to distinguish between stupidity and insanity.

Monday, an email from American Family Association is titled: Tell your Senators to vote NO on massive social spending bill. AFA “explains:”

This … act would advance the destructive goal of radical Democrats by including provisions of the Equality Act we’ve told you about in the past. This provision would tie the 1964 Civil Rights Act to special privileges based on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). And unfortunately, some Republicans are lining up to support this “deal”!

A similar email from Family Policy Alliance (Focus on the Family’s political wing) is titled: “URGENT: Stop the Implosion of Family Values in the Infrastructure Bill!”

TONIGHT: Tell the Senate to vote NO on the Infrastructure bill!

Wait until you see the language that they are bitching about.

TONIGHT, the Senate is moving to pass the current infrastructure bill which includes Equality Act language, specifically the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” (SOGI).

The Equality Act terms “sexual orientation/gender identity” have been used numerous times to punish individuals, students, parents, churches and businesses because of their religious beliefs and conscience rights on marriage and biological sex. These terms have also been used in policy to infringe on women’s privacy and parental rights.

Behold the “urgent” matter causing an “implosion:”
  • H. R. 3684
    • TITLE II—PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
      • Subtitle F—Supporting Frontline Workers And Passenger Safety
        • SEC. 2601. NATIONAL TRANSIT FRONTLINE WORKFORCE TRAINING CENTER.
          • (2) NATIONAL TRANSIT FRONTLINE WORKFORCE TRAINING CENTER
            • (B) DUTIES
              • (ii) TRAINING AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS
                • (IX) providing culturally competent training and educational programs to all who participate, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity, including those with limited English proficiency, diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and disabilities.
Uh, huh! The world is in peril because the bill includes nondiscrimination language in the provision of frontline workforce training programs.
