Bestselling Author Dr. Michael Youssef: “The Equality Act Is a Glaring Example of the Struggle for God’s Truth”

ATLANTA — Last week, Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives passed The Equality Act, a grave threat to religious liberty and conscience rights that would, in effect, erase all legal distinctions between male and female in public life. The legislation makes gender identity and sexual orientation protected classes under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, forcing compliance in areas such as public accommodation and education. If passed in the Senate, President Biden has promised to sign the bill.

“The Equality Act is a glaring example of the life-and-death struggle for God’s truth happening in every area of society from the home to the classroom to the church,” said Dr. Michael Youssef, author of “Hope for This Present Crisis,” which releases tomorrow, March 2, 2021. “Only in a post-truth culture like ours could such blatantly anti-science legislation be so widely accepted. Succeeding generations have become even more divorced from rational thinking and truth than ever before, and the consequences of the ‘trust your feelings’ mantra are unfolding before our eyes. The result will be rising suicide, addiction, and crime—and the victims will be our children and grandchildren.”

In“Hope for This Present Crisis,” Dr. Michael Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture that Christians struggle with each day and presents a concise seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad. The new book is available to pre-order through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM,, and Leading The Way.
