Last week we told you about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, also known as ENDA.

ENDA is presented as anti-discrimination legislation; the reality, however, is it it injects sexual expression into workplace decisions, and it will affect religious employers and religious organization. As Family Research Council notes,

Homosexuals, cross-dressers, and transgendered workers would automatically qualify for special treatment that other workers would not. Can you imagine walking into your child’s classroom and meeting a teacher dressed in drag? Neither can most Americans. But unfortunately, that’s just one of the many consequences of adopting a law as dangerous as this one. Preschools, daycare centers, summer camps, religious chains like Hobby Lobby or Chick-fil-A — they’ll all be subject to the law, regardless of their personal beliefs and workplace standards.

ENDA is yet another example of legislation running roughshod over religious liberty. It is vaguely-written, and will only be clarified through expensive and time-consuming litigation in our courts.

Senator Reid has indicated plans to bring ENDA up for a vote in the U.S. Senate as early as this week. Please contact Senators Pryor and Boozman today, and ask them each to oppose the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (S. 815).

    I can’t help but read this another way. “Urge your elected officials to vote AGAINST work-place non-discrimination.” This bill has protections for religious institutions in its text already.

    Does this mean that you advocate that gay folks are not worthy of the same job security that we heterosexuals have? That African-Americans have? That any religion has?
