H/t beloved FellowshipOfMinds members tina and FS!
The Left know that they have only a narrow window of opportunity of six months to inflict their ideological agenda on America before they lose their majority hold on Congress in November. They’ve already succeeded in ramming Obamacare down our throats. Now, like a series of hurricanes waiting offshore, other equally if not even worse bills are in the works — climate change global warming Cap ‘n Trade, finance “reform,” ENDA, and more….
ENDA is HR 3017, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. It is sponsored by openly gay Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts), whom Judicial Watch had named one of the ten most corrupt politicians in 2009.
ENDA is an entirely superfluous bill because we already have many federal laws prohibiting job discrimination, including the main one — Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
Here’s what Rev. Ted Pike, the director of the National Prayer Network, a Christian/conservative watchdog organization, says about ENDA:
ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, could be up for a floor vote in the US House within two weeks.
ENDA means unimagined legal, social, and moral disaster for America.
For the last forty years the Boy Scouts of America have resisted onslaught by the homosexual lobby and liberal “civil liberties” groups to allow homosexuals to become scout masters. Yet pervasive intrusion by homosexual volunteers has been relentless. Result: last week’s nearly twenty-million dollar judgment against scouting in Oregon for hiding abuses against a former scout, Kerry Lewis, by a homosexual scout master.
Yet if ENDA, HR 3017, becomes law, the scouts, along with all businesses with over fifteen employees in America, will actually be forced to hire a horde of qualified homosexuals in all positions. Churches might also have to hire gays in at least non-spiritual posts.
ENDA also forces businesses to give men “transitioning” from male to female complete access to women and girls’ bathroom and shower facilities.
Considering what happened to the scouts, can you imagine the chaos that will result when businesses and churches are actually required to make homosexuals a part of their workforce – on penalty of huge fines and even imprisonment?
It’s up to YOU to keep ENDA from even getting to the floor of the House.
- Call the representative in Congress from your district, and say, “I urge you to please vote against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, HR 3017. It discriminates against employers, giving special rights to homosexuals.”
- Call the crucial 16 Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee, most of whom have vigorously opposed hate crimes legislation in the past. Tell them, “Please do your best to fight ENDA in its upcoming mark-up hearing.”
- Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-224-3121.
Promoters of ENDA have had difficulty getting the votes they need because some Congressional Democrats, like most Americans, are horrified by ENDA’s “transgender” provision – requiring employers to allow transitioning males access to women’s facilities. Let’s encourage this rift among the Democrats by blitzing Congress now with protest. ENDA’s mark-up hearing has not been scheduled. If we can prevent it through heavy calling, we will have struck a powerful blow against the perverts who are not only ruining the Boy Scouts, but intend to sexually violate and destroy as many of America’s children as possible.
Defeat of ENDA would also have a strong secondary effect: it would prove once again that lovers of family and freedom do not have to wait until the decisive midterm elections, or until a violent revolution, to change America for the better.
Please heed Rev. Pike’s call to action before the America we knew is irretrievably lost to history.
