Sadly, this is not a joke.
And legislation, that hopefully won’t see the light of day, would penalize everyone in the Lone Star State who disagrees with the false narrative advocated by the LGBTQI groups.
Six pro-LGBTQ bills proposed by the alleged Gay Mafia in the Texas Legislature target business owners, the rest target the medical/health care industry.
“Four of the Texas bills – numbered HB 224, HB 254, HB 850 and SB 151 – would force Christian business owners to affirm homosexuality and transgenderism with their business practices,” CBN News reports.
The legislation suggests that transgenderism– what the medical diagnosis states is a mental illness called, gender dysphoria, where a person believes they are the opposite or no sex– should have the same legal recognition as a person’s ethnicity.
“The mad dash by some Democrat House and Senate members to push false narratives that sexual behavior is the same as skin color and that mental illness deserves the same honored status as religious belief is ominous evidence that the criminalization of religious faith and common sense are on the horizon,” Texas Pastors Council President Dave Welch warned, according to CBN News.
The bills would require small businesses to support transgenderism and self-professed sexual orientation to sell/offer/promote transgender goods and services. It also requires all for-profit businesses to allow men to use women’s bathrooms.
The remaining third of the proposed legislation targets the medical profession, essentially forcing doctors statewide to accept LGBTQ dictates instead of their biological sex.
“Two other bills take the LGBTQ activism straight into the health care field,” CBN News’ Benjamin Gill informed. “HB 517 forces Christian counselors to affirm transgenderism, and SB 154 would force doctors to violate their conscience by creating retroactive birth certificates with new gender identities for patients.”
