FRC Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Reacts (Badly) To News Of ENDA Committe Vote
“Under ENDA, churches, Christian schools and colleges, Christian-owned businesses, and others would face federal prosecution for firing or even refusing to hire someone due to their publically displayed sexual proclivities. It would strip Christians of their religious freedom, forcing them to violate their Christian values and conscience. Some call ENDA a ‘gay jobs bill.’ And we know in the wake of the ObamaCare mandate that the Obama Administration is not deterred at all by the fact that such a policy would trample upon religious freedom. There is no question, that the Left wants ENDA to squeak through the House, sail through the Senate, race to the Oval Office for the President’s signature, and become law. Because we’ve been the leading organization fighting it for years, we know ENDA.”
As it stands the current version of ENDA has very broad language giving exemptions to religious organizations that many LGBT groups and activists including myself are fighting to be removed because it makes this version of ENDA virtually worthless by exempting those who discriminate the most.
Also Perkins conveniently leaves out of his lie filled rant above that religion, even fake religions like his own is protected from job and housing discrimination under the 1964 Civil Rights Act. And as everyone knows. Religion IS a choice.
