Congress Considers Legislation to Deny Human Rights/Equal Rights

Washington, DC

While most of the nation grieved with the LGBT community in the wake of the recent terror attack in Orlando, Florida, where a gunman shot and killed 49 people at a gay nightclub; this week, the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a legislative hearing aimed a denying rights to members of the LGBT community. The legislation under consideration is identified as the “First Amendment Defense Act” (FADA). 

The proposed legislation would exempt those who hold a religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage from having to adhere to federal law. Under the FADA, the government would be prohibited from taking any action against anyone who violated federal law against such discrimination in light of their beliefs.
