(Worthy News) - LGBT groups and their allies in Congress are pushing for a sweeping piece of legislation that if enacted would, according to critics, limit religious freedom in the United States, the Christian Post reported.
Known as the Equality Act, the bill would add the classifications of "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as well as expand the level of businesses that must adhere to the Act.
"The Equality Act seeks to massively broaden the federal definition of public accommodations. It expands the definition of what counts as an entertainment venue … every single business that serves consumers in any fashion [gets turned] into a public accommodation. Get screwed over by a taxi driver? Accuse him of a being a bigot and send the feds after him!" [ Source ]
