FRC’s Tony “Chicken Little” Perkins: It’s The ENDA The World!

Tony Perkins is a Homo

“Imagine how many conservatives would find themselves in the unemployment line if ENDA were the law of the land! The workplace would be open season on people with religious convictions and beliefs. Christians (and people who follow most major religions) would be silenced and forced underground, while homosexuals and transgenders turn the business world into their strongest political platform. A lot of squishy Republicans think they fix the problem with a religious liberty amendment to ENDA. But as we’ve seen with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (which the courts have shot full of holes), it will take a legislative firewall — not an amendment — to protect faithful Americans.” – Family Research Council hate group President Tony Perkins, via email.

Little Ms. Perkins continues her  histrionics over ENDA, a Bill that has been so badly botched by our side that it actually gives her and his religious extremist carte blanche to continue discriminating against the LGBT community.

FRC’s Tony Perkins: Even Though ENDA Will Still Allow Us To Discriminate, We’ll Lie Anyway

ENDAWith every lame-ass beltway LGBT  journalist and news blogger cheering the fact that ENDA will soon hit the Senate floor WITHOUT writing a damn word about the very dangerous Religious Exemption it has that would still allow and write into law LGBT discrimination by religious organizations, schools, hospitals and businesses. (Yes I am calling you out Chris Giedner, Andy Towle, Joe Jervis and the rest of you.) Family Research Council hate group leader Tony Perkins sent out an email blast to his bigoted GOP and Tea Party followers lying about the current bill because being allowed to legally discriminate against us just isn’t enough.

“Dear XXXXX,

ENDA would force religious business owners and workplaces such as Christian bookstores, religious publishing houses, pre-schools and religious television and radio stations to accept as normal any employee who has had a sex-change surgery, any employee who has changed or is ‘transitioning’ their public ‘gender identity’ (regardless of whether they have had surgery or hormone treatments), transvestites (people who dress as the opposite sex on an occasional basis for emotional or sexual gratification), and drag queens or drag kings (people who dress as the opposite sex for the purpose of entertaining others). Making matters worse, ‘perceived gender identity’ status does not require sex-change surgery, so ENDA would allow some biological males (who claim to be female) to enter and even appear nude before females in bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers. Please contact your Senators and urge them to oppose S. 815, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act as it imposes on employers freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of conscience and the free market economy.”

Tony Perkins.

It must be the coldest day in hell because I also urge Senators to oppose the current version of S. 815. Not for the same reasons of course as Ms. Perkins  but because of the very broad religious exemptions which render this version of ENDA almost totally useless and would allow people like Perkins and ilk to be allowed to wantonly discriminate against us.  This is the story that’s NOT being told.

The exact religious exemption reads that: This Act shall not apply to a corporation, association, educational institution or institution of learning, or society that is exempt from the religious discrimination provisions of title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e et seq.) pursuant to section 702(a) or 703(e)(2) of such Act (42 U.S.C. 2000e-1(a), 2000e-2(e)(2)).

The major difference is that in the 1964 CRA any religious “corporation, association, educational institution or institution of learning, or society” are only allowed to pass over hiring someone if they are not the same faith.  It does not exclude an entire subset of people such as women or blacks.  But in ENDA the above religious exemption would allow them to freely continue to discriminate against the LGBT community and even worse it would be written into law.

This version of ENDA is a sham and in the end if by some chance it does indeed pass the Senate and the House and gets signed into law it could do us more harm than good.

Perhaps the saddest statement on it is that Tico Almeida of Freedom to Work who helped write it actually admitted that it was written so broadly just so it would pass.  NOT because its best for the LGBT community.

Whats the use of this version of ENDA if its essentially worthless and give those who abuse us the most a free pass to discriminate against us.

 

 

 

 

The Vatican Says That Gays Want Special Privileges While They Want The Right To Discriminate

Evil Prayers

In the American language you have a distinction between the word ‘homosexual’ and ‘gay’. A homosexual is a person who has, to some extent, this homosexual condition. Somebody may have this difficulty, and his friends, his neighbors will not know about this. He’s dealing with this in cooperation with the grace of God and may come out of this difficulty and come back to normal human relationships. Sometimes adolescents, at the moment when their sexual sensibility is appearing, if they have been distorted by others they go through a phase of difficulty in this field. But as they mature they will grow out of it. Whereas a ‘gay’ is somebody who says, ‘I am like this, I will be like this, I want to be treated like this, and I want special privileges because I am like this.’ Now if somebody is not only homosexual, but a gay, declaring, ‘This is how I am, and I want this to be respected legally, socially and so on’ – such a person will never come out of the difficulty.” – Vatican theologian Wojiech Geirtyc

Coming from an organization that prides itself on special privileges this is a complete joke

Anti-discrimination laws are not “privileges.” They are defenses against unfair practices in the work place, in the marketplace and in housing. And those are the same “privileges” these sanctimonious asshats enjoy under the 1964 Civil Rights Act for religion.

Unfortunately now though we are having a problem with ENDA because of it and once again our fearful LGBT leaders are out of touch and will sell us out “just to get something passed”.

Under the recent version of ENDA the religious exemptions are written so broadly that they will allow not only churches to discriminate against LGBT individuals but also church affiliated businesses such as schools, universities, and hospitals among others.

The religious exemptions written by Tico Almeida of Freedom to Work makes the current version of ENDA about to go before Congressional Committee virtually worthless and not only gives a pass to religious bigotry but also basically will write LGBT discrimination by them into law and will set a dangerous precedent for any other forthcoming LGBT legislation.
