Lawmakers schooled: With God, 'change is possible'

Bible 1Individuals who used to identify as LGBTQ met with members of Congress this week to discuss controversial measures such as the Equality Act (H.R.5) and the Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act (H.R.3570).

One of those who visited Capitol Hill was former lesbian Janet Boynes. She later shared on the radio program "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" that – despite what news outlets and politicians may claim – change is possible.

"I am a living example that change is possible through the power of God," said Boynes. "The gay community is looking to indoctrinate our kids. They do not want us to say change is possible."

She continued: "If they were so comfortable in their own skin, why are they coming after us? Why are they trying to silence us? Why are they trying to silence the church? Because they know they are wrong – and as long as we stay silent, they will continue to make inroads."

Boynes also shared that she gave Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) a copy of her book Called Out featuring testimonies of former LGBTQ individuals.

"I hope she takes the time to read it because these bills that they are coming up with [H.R.5 and H.R.3570] are to silence us – and this is so wrong," she emphasized. "Many women who have transitioned or had gender reassignment surgeries want to undo what they had done. They want to go back to the way they were when they came out of the womb."

The Equality Act "prohibits discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity in a wide variety of areas including public accommodations and facilities, education, federal funding, employment, housing, credit, and the jury system." Churches and other non-profits argue the Act could force them to violate their religious beliefs. Meanwhile, legal organizations and think tanks say the Equality Act would be unfair to women's athletics, as it would force females to compete against biological males who say they are women.

The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act would prohibit therapy for anyone with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender identity issues.
