US bishops ‘gravely disappointed’ by House passage of Equality Act
May 20, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The House of Representatives passed the Equality Act (H.R.5) in a 236-173 vote. Five bishops who chair USCCB committees warned that “the Act’s unsound definitions of ‘sex’ and ’gender identity’ would ... end women’s shelters and many single-sex schools, ...close faith-based foster care and adoption agencies that honor children’s rights to a mother and father ... [and] even act as an abortion mandate.” The USCCB explained its opposition to the Act in greater detail in a March 20 letter.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
