A constitutional law expert is asking Congress to block the latest attempt to force the LGBT agenda on the country.
The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate but Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver says it passed without some senators realizing an amendment was added providing special rights for homosexuals and transgenders.
He calls that amendment the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent.
“The old saying is once that camel gets the nose in the tent, you can’t stop them from coming the rest of the way in,” he explains. “And this would be the first time that you would have in federal law mentioning gender identity and sexual orientation as part of this anti-lynching bill.”
No one can or should oppose a bill that bans lynching, says the Liberty Counsel attorney, and thus it’s being used as back door approach to pass legislation such as the controversial Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
“So far they’ve been unsuccessful over the many years in the past,” Staver observes, “but this is a way to slip it in under a so-called anti-lynching bill, and to then to sort of circle the wagon and then go for the juggler at some time in the future.”
Staver tells OneNewsNow that Liberty Counsel is talking to lawmakers in the House in an effort to convince them to strip the bill of the amendment before taking a vote.
