Greetings from FRC Action!

We wanted to share the following information with you from our friends at Citizens for Community Values. If you have previously received this message, please simply disregard this second contact. We did, however, want to make certain that you, your friends, and your neighbors would be aware of this very critical information.

We encourage you to join Citizens for Community Values in making your voice heard today!

The Ohio House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee heard testimony on a bill on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. that would punish schools, ministries, businesses and families that don’t want to allow biological men in women’s restrooms, locker rooms, and domestic violence shelters.

The largest and most powerful businesses in Ohio are backing this bill to bully churches, businesses, and families.

Every day Ohioans of all religions do business, go to school, and live life with their LGBT neighbors. Ohio is a diverse state. We should be celebrating that, yet HB 160 creates division.

HB 160 elevates “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to protected class status. While everyone opposes discrimination, HB 160 creates a host of problems. Among the issues, this bill would:

·       Require schools, restaurants, Christian ministries, and any public accommodation to allow biological men in women’s restrooms and locker rooms.

·       Require businesses participate in same-sex weddings, regardless of the business owner’s religious beliefs.

·       Require domestic violence shelters to allow biological men to bathe and bunk with women if the men claim they are women.

·       Require public schools allow biological boys in girls locker rooms, dressing rooms, and girls athletics.

Step 1: TAKE ACTION TODAY

Call or write your representative in the Ohio legislature to let them know you oppose HB160 and further, ask your representatives to let the “Ohio House and Government Accountability and Oversight Committee know that you oppose this bill and ask that the committee oppose HB160.

Step 2: Please pray!

·       Pray for our LGBT neighbors and those supporting this bill. Ask the Lord to reveal His goodness to them.

·       Pray our leaders reject this harmful legislation.

·       Pray for courage for Speaker of the Ohio House Cliff Rosenberger, Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof, and Ohio Governor John Kasich and all of our representatives.

Thank you for standing with us and Citizens for Community Values to protect and defend Faith, Family, and Freedom!
