Nearly every person of faith is aware that there is an overt war on religion and that the attacks have radically increased under the Biden administration. The faithful have been fighting back, and we have lately been winning in the courts. As a result, new and more covert anti-religious measures are being enacted by the left, and these too must be exposed and fought against.

The most recent attack is disguised by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as protection against sexual harassment in the workplace. But this has nothing to do with sexual harassment and everything to do with forcing an anti-religious acceptance of transvestitism upon those who object to embracing multiple gender definitions as antithetical to their religious beliefs. And in this case, the authoritarian mandate specifically forbids religious exemptions.
The EEOC has mandated that all employers must address employees based on their preferred pronouns. According to the EEOC, those who believe in two genders must violate their beliefs and reject this common sense and traditional view based on biology or be subject to criminal prosecution for sexual harassment. Specifically, “sex-based harassment includes harassment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, including how that identity is expressed” and “harassment because an individual does not present in a manner that would stereotypically be associated with that person’s gender; intentional and repeated use of a name or pronoun inconsistent with the individual’s gender identity (misgendering); or the denial of access to a bathroom or other sex-segregated facility consistent with the individual’s gender identity.”
The idea that calling a person by the gender God gave them at birth is now criminal is more than problematic, but it gets even worse. The EEOC has made it a direct attack on religious rights by specifically prohibiting religious beliefs as an exemption. “Employers are not required to accommodate religious expression that creates, or reasonably threatens to create, a hostile work environment” is in direct contradiction with and now overrides Title IV protections that employers must “accommodate employees’ sincerely held religious practices.” The EEOC has determined that gender is more important than God.
