Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-CO) has introduced legislation that would stop federal tax dollars from going to Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). According to congressional appropriation records, the federally subsidized Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) receives over $400 million per year, and it sends about $60 million to PBS to promote an ideology of sexual deviancy and to attack religious liberty. 

Take action now. Urge your member of Congress to support Rep. Lamborn's bill to defund public broadcasting. 

PBS has been airing a TV and an online series called Prideland to advance and normalize unbiblical sexuality. In the most recent PBS episode, Championing LGBTQ+ Healthcare in Mississippi, healthcare workers’ religious liberty and freedom of conscience are attacked. Healthcare personnel in many states have religious liberty rights and freedom of conscience rights to protect them from the sexual deviancy agenda. PBS is airing LGBTQ+ propaganda to undermine state laws designed to protect healthcare workers' rights.

In particular, PBS has made it clear that it's fighting against state laws like Mississippi's H.B. 1523, which states: 

The state government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person wholly or partially on the basis that the person declines to participate in the provision of treatments, counseling, or surgeries related to sex reassignment or gender identity transitioning or declines to participate in the provision of psychological, counseling, or fertility services based upon a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction. … 

This law prevents the government from forcing healthcare workers and counselors to provide services that would violate their "sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction." If providing gender identity transition care violates a healthcare worker's religious belief or conviction, then the state government cannot force the worker to provide that service. 

It is clear that PBS is using taxpayer funding to lobby the court of public opinion to subvert state laws that protect religious liberty and rights of conscience for healthcare personnel. This is not just a Mississippi issue as the PBS Prideland series makes it clear that its sexual deviancy agenda is nationwide.

Send your member of Congress an email now. Urge your representative to sign on as a co-sponsor of Rep. Lamborn's bill that will stop taxpayer funds from going to PBS by defunding Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
