Help STOP Bill that Penalizes Foreigners Who Oppose the Left's LGBT Agenda in ONE simple step...
The U.S. House of Representatives has officially approved a bill called the "Global Respect Act," which seeks to penalize foreign visitors to the United States who don't subscribe to the radical left's LGBT agenda!

This represents yet another ridiculous attempt on the part of congressional Democrats (along with a few Republicans) to prioritize virtue-signaling over legislating by way of an authoritarian attack on traditional values.

With this in mind, we hope you're as ready to do your part to ensure this useless legislation does NOT make it past the floor of the U.S. Senate.

Can we count on you to send a message to your state's two U.S. Senators asking them to put a cap on the identity politics obsession by opposing this bill if and when it comes before them for a vote?

You can reach your U.S. Senators in one easy step using this simple contact form (see right) that we're making available here on LifeSite's Action Center.

Then, please SHARE this important information with your friends and family members to spread the word across our country!

H.R. 3485, also known as the "Global Respect Act" (GRA), was originally introduced last spring by Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline, a liberal Democrat.

While proponents of the bill like to sell it as legislation to advance human rights, the truth is that H.R. 3485 is little more than a tool for the radical left to promote their agenda of identity politics and intolerance for those who oppose the LGBT social agenda.

If passed by the Senate, H.R. 3485 would seek to penalize all foreigners who wish to enter the United States but who also oppose the LGBT agenda.

In effect, the bill would give the White House the power to ban visas for any person it deems "complicit" in "violations of “internationally recognized human rights” with respect to the "LGBTQI" population.

And, of course, the bill is broadly-worded and mostly vague when it comes to how those violations would be defined, and takes direct aim at citizens from more than 70 countries worldwide with a traditional belief system and corresponding laws on their books.

This kind of illiberal discrimination is outrageous and must be stopped in the Senate!

Should it become law, H.R. 3485 would represent a major, unprecedented affront to religious liberty and freedom of speech in our country.

The decades-long attack on individuals who believe marriage is a union between one man and one woman has been leading up to moments like this, where politicians attempt to criminalize those beliefs.

By giving our government the power to punish individuals for following their conscience when it doesn't match up with the misguided priorities of those in power, this bill would effectively confirm that, in the modern-day United States, sexual preference and "gender identity" take legal priority over the protection of First Amendment rights.

Put simply: If you don't buy into the Biden Administration's "woke" agenda, your own human rights are forgotten -- thanks to a bill that's supposedly meant to protect human rights!

While, of course, we in no way advocate for any harmful acts against the LGBT population anywhere in the world, there is absolutely no justification for those who oppose the LGBT lifestyle and agenda to be penalized for holding such beliefs -- whether those beliefs are rooted in religion/faith, or simply personal ethics and morals.

But that is exactly what the laughably-named "Global Respect Act" would do should it become law in the United States, and why we need to stop it before it's too late.

H.R. 3485 was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives in a relatively close 227-206 vote, with six Republican members joining the entire House Democratic caucus to pass the bill and send it off to the Senate.

As things stand now, the bill has been formally transferred to the upper chamber, where it was referred to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations for further review and consideration.

While it has yet to advance out of committee and to the floor for debate, it is important that we take a proactive stand against the so-called "Global Respect Act," which is anything but respectful towards the First Amendment rights, and religious, moral/ethical, and personal beliefs of those who refuse to tow the radical left line on LGBT issues.

So please, take a few minutes today to contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to focus on real issues -- NOT identity politics -- by opposing the "Global Respect Act" if and when it comes before them for a vote this year.

It's time to take a strong stand for our country and for the unalienable rights of ALL people, not just those who subscribe to a radical social worldview, and we need your help to make it happen!

Thank you!
