There's nothing equal about the Equality Act which undermines the First Amendment in order to achieve leftist policy goals.
Here are the 8 House Republicans who sold out religious freedom by voting for it.
Rep. Susan Brooks R-IN
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart R- FL
Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick R-PA
Rep. Will Hurd R-TX
Rep. John Katko R-NY
Rep. Tom Reed R-NY
Rep. Elise Stefanik R-NY
Rep. Greg Walden R-OR
It does figure that there would be three New Yorkers in the mix. And Stefanik's vote was inevitable. Katko seems to have some odd obsessions. He's still fighting to replace Hamilton on the Twenty with Harriet Tubman. Brooks is on the fairly liberal side, but also represents a liberal district, and she's faced primary challenges before. Brooks claims to be pro-life. The Equality Act clearly isn't. But she argues that she'll be able to improve the bill later.
That's fairly obvious nonsense. And the excuse that every Republican who sells out the party's principles makes.
