Late yesterday Senators Pryor and Boozman cast important votes on the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
This bill is not about preventing discrimination. It is about injecting sexual preferences and sexual expression into the workplace.
Yesterday, Senator Pryor voted in support of ENDA. Senator Boozman voted against it. You can read a breakdown of the votes here.
The United States Senate is expected to take a final vote on ENDA today to pass it and send it for consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives.
ENDA runs roughshod over religious employers, including Christian publishing companies and bookstores; it treats conscientious disagreement with homosexual and trangender lifestyles as bigotry; it will allow men who “self-identify” as women to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms in the workplace, and vice versa; its ambiguities can only be clarified through expensive and time-consuming litigation at the expense of our nation’s taxpayers and employers.
Family Research Council and Heritage Foundation have written extensively about the problems this bill poses.
