This week, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on a bill with dangerous implications: the Equality Act. The bill’s title is a misnomer, as instead of furthering protections for all Americans’ civil liberties, it would penalize American citizens for their beliefs about sexual orientation and biological gender. “A federal sexual orientation and gender identity law would empower the government to interfere in how regular Americans think, speak, and act at home, at school, at work and at play. Any bill promoting such authoritarianism is a danger to our freedoms,” reads Heritage’s explainer on the bill.
