The ENDA agenda and why you should care
November 6, 2013
This week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said he opposes allowing a vote on the recently Senate-passed bill that gives special privileges based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and backed up by coercive enforcement.
The Senate version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) would make it illegal for organizations with 15 or more employees to "fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise discriminate against any individual...because of such individual's actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity."
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, is considering a change, or just thinks they are the opposite sex of what they really are.
Situations like this have already been reported in several states with ENDA like laws such as Maine, Colorado and California. Christian business owners were forced to close their family-owned businesses because their religious liberties were trumped by "sexual orientation" laws.
