Said Graham on Facebook: “Shame on Taylor Swift for using her platform to try to push the socialist leftâs so-called Equality Act, which has nothing to do with equality, but is about pushing the LGBTQ agenda down the throats of the American people. When she received an award for her LGBTQ pride-themed music video at the MTV awards last night, she did a pitch for the Equality Act. This bill is the most crushing threat to religious liberty in our nationâs history. I endorsed a letter appealing to Congressional leaders to vote NO to the Equality Act.”
“This is far too serious for Christians to sit by and do nothing,” Graham added. “I encourage everyone to contact their representatives in the Senate, asking them to vote AGAINST this dangerous measure which has already passed the House. In addition to allowing perverted men access to womenâs private spaces like dressing rooms and restrooms, and allowing biological males to take over girlsâ and women's athletic competitions, this bill would do a lot more damage. Itâs about trying to force those of us who donât agree to accept and approve the LGBTQ lifestyle, and Iâm not going to accept that. The Daily Signal spells out 7 concerning ways the Equality Act would affect our daily lives. Read more and let me know if youâre shocked.”
Swift notedÂ upon accepting her award for “Video of the Year” that a petition at the end of her âYou Need To Calm Downâ video calling for passage of the Equality Act had reached half a million signatures âwhich is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the White House.â
Said Swift: âYou voting for this video means that you want a world where weâre all treated equally under the law regardless who we love, regardless how we identify.â
The White House responded on Tuesday to Swiftâs request for a response.
Said (gay) White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd DeereÂ to CNN: âThe Trump administration absolutely opposes discrimination of any kind and supports the equal treatment of all; however, the House-passed bill in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights.â
