Right-Wing Crazies Think the Equality Act Will Outlaw Christianity
Right-wing talking head Lauren Witzke claimed on The Alex Jones Show on Thursday that the Equality Act – designed to end discrimination against LGBTQ+ Americans – is a sinister ploy by President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party to persecute Christians and outlaw the worship of Jesus Christ.
None of that is true.
“There is a war on Christians. They did this, they targeted me, and they made an example out of me because I’m an outspoken Christian who vocally opposes the Equality Act. Listen Alex. I don’t know how much you know about it but they’re trying to illegalize Jesus Christ and the Scripture and categorize it as hate speech,” Witzke alleged to InfoWars host Alex Jones.
“Absolutely. It’s just like in Europe and Canada where they’re arresting pastors. Tell folks about it,” Jones growled.
“Absolutely so what it will do is it will classify scripture, belief in traditional marriage, as hate speech. If an abortionist wants to make the decision to not perform an abortion, they can arrest that abortionist or that doctor or that nurse that chooses to take the biblical approach and change their lives. Children who struggle with gender identity—now it’s going to make it illegal for them to pursue therapy to change their mind. This is absolutely an attack on Christians,” Witzke said.
Once again, Jones interrupted to scream.
“It’s basically the cult trying to make it illegal to leave the cult,” he said.
“Yes, exactly, and even just quoting scripture will be classified as hate speech. … It is going to make Christianity a crime on a federal level,” Witzke said. “We cannot allow this to go any further. We’re going to lose everything. It’s gotten to the point now where we’re all going to end up in Kamala [Harris’] gulags unless we all stand up together and fight back as Christians.”
