Crossdressing, Austism and HR 5

Mar 17, 2021

An autistic child is being denied necessary services because his family refused to allow a crossdresser to work with him in their home. Now this 8-year-old boy’s parents, both ministers, are being forced to choose between their child’s care or their Christian faith.

Autistic children are incredibly sensitive to change. Anything new, unexpected or illogical can send these special children into a physical and emotional tailspin.

Sometimes unable to verbally communicate their distress, such children tend to express their pain and confusion via crying and self-harm that can last for hours or even days.

Autistic families learn to keep change to a minimum, making consistency a goal and continuity the core of their family life so their special child can know peace and thrive.

Liberty Counsel received a plea for help this week from a young family caught in the crossfire of the radical LGBTQ movement’s attempts to destroy that peace and force a crossdresser into the home of this Christian family.



Susan (name changed for privacy) and her husband have a small Christian ministry. Their 8-year-old child suffers from autism, requiring regular behavioral therapy performed in their home.

After their son’s prior female caregiver left the company providing behavioral services under a federal government contract, Susan inquired about her replacement and was told the new caregiver would be a woman.

But when Susan opened the door to greet the new therapist, before her stood a man dressed in drag.

Susan immediately called the therapy company, which first tried to insist that the new teacher was, in fact, a woman. But when Susan pressed the issue that the teacher was a man dressed like a woman, the company said Susan could not discriminate against this female imposter.

Susan was verbally informed that if she did not accept the man in drag, her son's much-needed services would be terminated. And that’s exactly what happened.

Now Susan and her husband, both in Christian ministry, have NO help for their precious son. If HR 5 passes, this heartbreaking experience will happen to other parents receiving help for their autistic children.

Crossdressers, pedophiles and paraphiliacs will be in a protected class with special rights—and this bill will empower LGBT & Q and abortion over anything else—including this family and their autistic son.

Ministers like Susan and her husband will be forced to hire crossdressers and people with any other of the nearly 550 sexual paraphilias, and in the case of this family, even allowing access in your home to your vulnerable special-needs child. Refusal can result not just in loss of services but also lawsuits from the deviant as well as the U.S. Department of Justice.

Working together, we can and must Stop the “Equality Act.”

We need your help to demand the Senate REJECT THE SO-CALLED “EQUALITY ACT.” This bill will force LGBTQ and abortion into every corner of our lives (including online), and it revokes the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that protects religious freedom.

Without RFRA, churches and religious schools will be forced to hire crossdressers and other sexual deviants, allow boys in the girls' bathrooms and much more. And Christian families like Susan’s will be forced to allow confused crossdressers into their own private homes ... or else.

This dangerous bill MUST BE STOPPED NOW! The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing begins today. But Sen. Schumer invoked Rule 14, meaning he can call up the bill for a vote any time without committee hearings. There is no time to waste! Select here or the button below to send your urgent fax now.


While fighting HR 5 and HR 1, we continue to defend pastors, churches and pro-life heroes like Sandra Merritt who revealed Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of baby body parts. Our services are always free to our clients, and we have been at the tip of the spear keeping religious liberty free for over 30 years.

But we cannot do this without YOUR HELP. Please give generously today, and have YOUR IMPACT DOUBLED by the generous Challenge Grant. Support Liberty Counsel by selecting here or the button below.

Finally, please continue to pray in the spirit of 2 Chronicles 7:14:

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Yours for true freedom!
