If the Equality Act of 2021 is passed, what are the implications affecting our Lutheran church and schools?
We will not know what the implications are until the bill, in its final form, becomes law. As with any other proposed legislation, Christian citizens will want to exercise their rights in contacting their elected representatives and relaying their thoughts and concerns.
Christians will also want to follow this instruction: “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-4).
