Tammy asks and its okay, just not on 2020 Census




CHICAGO – In a fundraising email last week, Illinois' junior US Senator Tammy Duckworth distributed photos of her and her 4 year old daughter at Chicago's Gay Pride Parade.

"I even brought my 4-year-old daughter, Abigail, who had a blast. I'm so glad I got the chance to show her the importance of being proud of who you are — and that diversity of all kinds is what makes our country great," Duckworth's email said.

Then in the email Duckworth, a veteran pilot that lost her legs in a helicopter crash, threw in a hat tip to the gun control activists that were at the parade. 

"But Pride Month should also serve as a reminder of how much further we have to go before all Americans can access true equality," she wrote, "We can't forget that people still face being fired or losing their housing because of their identity. And as activists from Moms Demand Action reminded us, far too many LGBTQ+ folks live in fear of violence."

And while Duckworth celebrated the Supreme Court decision that resulted in no citizenship question on the 2020 Census, saying "The administration shouldn't have even tried to add this question …"

Guess what the first question is that Senator Duckworth asks when requesting a political contribution (as required by law)

  1. I am ashamed of the fact she is my US Senator. Duckworth is going to vote to water down our constitutionally protected religious freedoms. I have great displeasure with the congressional house democrats for passing HR 5, the “Equality Act”. Not one of the democrats voted in opposition to this Religious freedom stealing bill and Duckworth supports it. This proposed bill should have never made it to the floor of the house for a vote; as it denies Christians religious freedom. The first amendment states in part; Congress shall make NO law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. With the proposed “Equality Act”, the house democrats passed a bill that restricts the free exercise of religion. What’s at risk for Christians; the short list is Churches would be forced to host same-sex ceremonies and possibly lose tax-exempt status for noncompliance. If you are a Christian business owner, you will lose your religious right of conscience. Christian bakers, for example, will be forced to bake same-sex wedding cakes. To true Bible believing Christians, lgbt behaviors and same-sex marriage are sins. When the federal government can tell you by way of “The Equality Act” what you can’t honor in the Bible, then there is no free exercise of religion. While we all sin and fall short of the glory of God, to be a true Christian, one must strive to have faithful obedience to God’s word. The Bible says, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4:17). While sin is a personal act, we Christians have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them; like by participating or supporting them. The federal government would force Christian business owners to sin or be out of business, if HR 5 becomes law. You cannot separate freedom of worship, right of conscience, and freedom of speech without denying Christians the free exercise of religion. Yes, we as Christians are instructed to love our neighbor, but we are not to love our neighbor’s sins. This proposed bill is designed to trick people, by use of the words “equality act”, to make us think it’s about race when the truth is it is about special privileges for lgbt and religious persecution. Several years ago, about 150 genetic scientists from around world mapped the human genome and didn’t find a lgbt gene. Genes determine skin color, there is no scientific proof lgbt behaviors have a genetic causation. The lgbt “born that way” claim is liberal ideology and not objective, evidence-based science. All behavior is a choice, unless a mental disorder or mental illness is involved. One stated purpose of the federal government is to secure and protect our rights. Congress can’t lawfully dilute our constitutionally protected religious freedom by enacting a federal statute. If the federal government can change the US Constitution with a federal statute, then what’s the point of the US Constitution and article V? The US Constitution is the supreme law of the land and obeying it is not optional. Congress knows well Article V of the US Constitution must be used to amend the US Constitution, not a federal statute. HR 5, the Equality act, is outside the scope of powers granted to the congress because if enacted, it will effectively abridge the KJV of the Bible and religious freedom. The free exercise of religion is a basic human right, which is constitutionally protected from government. HR 5 is an attack on religious freedom, it and all like-minded bills must be voted down by the US Senate for being religious persecution.
    US Senator Despicable Duckworth supports attacking our religious freedom and the US Constitution, the same constitution she swore an oath to protect and defend. She is an enemy of true biblical Illinois Christians. She serves without honor and integrity.

  2. Do you know why commiecrats like Duckworth and Durbin oppose the are you a citizen question? Its because they don’t want America to have an honest count of the persons illegally here in the country, they always give us a low ball number. If we Americans knew the real number, it would prove how irresponsible the democrats have acted in keeping the border open.

  3. Maybe Tammy and the Democrats believe that if they can win in 2020 by illegal immigrant voter fraud, they can seize power PERMANENTLY and neither a census, nor elections, will be necessary in the future?
