SAD: What America Looks Like After Liberals’ ‘Fundamental Transformation’

Calvin Freiburger reports that the NFL isn’t the only business that has allowed itself to be hijacked by the radical Left. Not by a long shot.

LifeSiteNews reports that 100 major corporations have pledged their support for legislation called the “Equality Act,” which the Congressional Research Service says “amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation.”

Equality is good and discrimination is bad, right? So what’s the problem? Simple: as everyone who’s been following politics for more than five minutes should understand by now, liberals mean something very different than those words’ plain English meanings:

Noting the expanded definition of “public accommodation” under the proposed legislation, [the Family Research Council] states: “Thus, if the Inequality Act [FRC’s pejorative label for the so-called “Equality” Act] passes, attorneys will likely be required to represent homosexuals in dissolving their same-sex ‘marriages,’ Christian schools will likely be required to offer transgendered students the bathroom of their choice, and Christian homeless shelters will likely be required to accommodate same-sex couples.”

According to the CRS, HR 2282 defines “gender identity” as “gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or characteristics, regardless of the individual’s designated sex at birth.” The bill states that the Department of Justice (DOJ) “may bring a civil action if it receives a complaint from an individual” who claims to be “denied equal utilization of a public facility … (other than public schools or colleges) on account of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”

Thus, under HR 2282, a “male-to-female” “transgender” activist could sue an amusement park if it refused to let him, as a biological male, enter the public women’s restrooms (since amusement parks would be covered under the Act as “public accommodations”).

In other words, while the Constitution as currently written is already more than sufficient to protect any Americans’ actual rights — life, liberty, property, due process, voting, etc. — from being denied on the basis of sex, orientation, or perceived gender identity, this legislation would create a legal foothold for activist lawmakers, bureaucrats, and judges to conjure up new entitlements for the Left’s various interest groups under the guise of “rights” — the actual constitutional freedoms of the private citizens expected to accommodate them be damned.

Fortunately, this bill is essentially dead on arrival in the current Republican-controlled Congress (the GOP might not be worth a damn when it comes to enacting good laws, but thank God they still have a majority with which to prevent bad ones). However, the LGBT lobby is enlisting — or, more accurately, browbeating — corporate America into its propaganda efforts, in the hope that future generations will elect a more secular and “progressive” Congress that would make bills like this (or worse) a reality.

Through a “Corporate Equality Index” detailed by LifeSiteNews that shames businesses for not being sufficiently “enlightened,” the gay activist group Human Rights Campaign (gee, considering their name I wonder what their position on abortion is) has gotten the following 100 companies to endorse the “Equality” Act:
