Gender Ideology and The Equality Act: How to Respond with Courage, Truth, and Love

The Equality Act, which has now passed through the U.S. House of Representatives and awaits a vote in the U.S. Senate, threatens to fundamentally transform American anti-discrimination laws while providing little by way of religious exemption. As “trans-rights” language continues to sweep through corporations, media, and schools, Catholics have been left scrambling for resources on how to respond with truth and love. We were delighted to host John McCormack, Washington correspondent and fellow at National Review Institute, and Mary Hasson, Kate O’Beirne Fellow in Catholic Studies at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, for a virtual discussion on the political implications of the Equality Act and to highlight the Person & Identity Project, a new web resource to help parents, clergy, and parochial school teachers and administrators present the truth of the human person with courage and compassion.
