A prominent Democrat said the quiet part ‘out loud’ during a hearing in the house on the monstrous Equality Act when he responded to another member quoting scripture in defense of the biblical roles or men and women that “God’s will is no concern of this Congress.”
Quoting scripture that says ‘A woman must not wear men’s clothing nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this’, Republican congressman Greg Steube explained that God designed sex and gender a certain way, and that those who seek to overthrow that design are being rebellious to God’s will, which will ultimately result in judgment from God.
“It’s not clothing or personal style that offends God, but rather the use of one’s appearance to act out or take on a sexual identity different from the one biologically assigned by God at birth. In his wisdom, God intentionally made each individual uniquely either male or female.
When men or women claim to be able to choose their own identity, they’re making a statement that God did not know what he was doing when he created them. I’m going to quote directly from Dr. Tony Evan’s commentary bible on this passage of scripture.
‘Men and women equally share in bearing the image of God, but he has designed them to be distinct from and complementary toward one another. The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design. Whenever a nation’s laws reflect the standards of God, that nation is in rebellion against him, and will inevitably bear the consequences.
And I think we are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today, and this bill speaks directly against what is laid out in scripture, our government, through this bill, is going to redesign what a woman is, and what a man is. It can be anyone, who identifies in that gender…”
The claims by Represantative Stuebe ultimately prompted Democratic Representative Jerry Nadler, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to respond:
Mr. Steube, what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.
