FEDERAL

HR 5, a bill before Congress, targets Christian people and our sincerely held Christian values. It  compels Christian people to endorse, accept, and embrace anti-Biblical sinful sexual conduct. Now before the House of Representative, HR 5 forces churches to wed same-sex couples and hire cross-dressing teachers. It permits men to use women’s restrooms and dressing rooms, If your church refuses, it loses its tax-exempt status. Under the bill Churches also face expensive litigation, fines and financially crippling court judgments. Most troubling, under the provisions of HR 5, your free exercise of religion is no longer a defense.

Under HR 5 Churches must host same-sex ceremonies. Nonconforming Churches lose tax-exempt status. Nonconforming Colleges lose accreditation. The bill prohibits nonconforming educational institutions at all level rom receiving students loans. Inevitably, Christian institutions will either cease to exist or bow to a secular god by compromising their core Christian mission.

The implication are real. If Christians schedule a mission trip, the proposed law prohibits the Christian organization from separating rooms by biological sex. Thus, men must have access to the women’s showers and bathrooms.  Additionally the proposed law prohibits churches from following Biblical precepts on sexuality when hiring church ministry and staff. Thus, it violates the proposed law to consider whether a candidate openly engages in sinful sexual conduct. The bill allows lawsuits by someone who believes a church did not hire or select them due to their sexual lifestyle. Thus, even if the church denied the job for other reasons, it could face costly “damages” in a court judgment.

The only thing required for the conquest of wickedness, is for good people to remain idle

In a heartbeat…

H.R. 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act, will protect every unborn child whose heartbeat can be detected.  With 170 co-sponsors, it has more Congressional support than any other pro-life bill.  This common-sense bill is supported by seven out of ten in America, 86 percent of Republicans, and 55 percent–a majority–of Democrats (George Barna poll, 2017).  

Here are some other important legislative proposals in the Michigan House and Senate impacting Christian people in Michigan:
