With their battle against same-sex-marriage failing miserably Tony Perkins and the GOP backed Family Research Council hate group are looking to and moving forward on their next major battle against the LGBT community and our fight for full equality. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
In his most recent right-wing welfare money beg Perkins describes the bill as “dangerous” and “totalitarian” because it limits anti-gay Christians’ ability to discriminate against LGBT’s .
ENDA–the Employment Non-Discrimination Act–is dangerous. It feeds on freedom, primarily the freedom of religion and speech: not in theory, but on a practical, everyday level. It leaves few freedoms behind.
Yes, the bill has a fair-sounding name, but in fact, ENDA would give special rights to men and women who engage in homosexual behavior. It will force Christian schools and colleges, Christian-owned businesses, day care centers, and other organizations to employ people who make their sexual behavior an issue as they parade their proclivities into the workplace. [...]
Certainly to you and me, the very idea of ENDA–giving special rights and protections to people based solely on their sexual behavior–is outrageous. But to this pro-homosexual President and the totalitarian homosexual lobby, it’s a reasonable way to advance their cause–and crush the biblical view that stands in their way of fundamentally transforming America. ENDA is massive leap forward in redefining America.
Perkins and his ilk push ENDA as a case of special rights. But if that’s true they are special rights that Perkins and his pseudo “Christian: group have enjoyed for almost the past 50 years since the 1964 Civil Rights Act which includes religious beliefs as one of its group of classes that may not be discriminated against.
currently in 30 states it’s legal to fire someone because they are lesbian or gay; and in 39 states transgender people can be legally fired.
But not in one state can you be fired for being a hateful evil white supremacist bigot like Tony Perkins.
Talk about “dangerous”.
