Homosexual Hate Crime/ENDA Legislation Tops Obama Agenda


Protect the religious liberties of employers and employees.

What is ENDA?
aka Employment Non-Discrimination Act

ENDA is a "one size fits all" solution to alleged discrimination that erases all marriage-based distinctions. It grants special rights to homosexuals while ignoring those of employers. The federal government should not force private businesses to abandon their moral principles.

FRC Action opposes this legislation on the following grounds:

Such legislation affords special protection to a group that is not disadvantaged.
The issue is not job discrimination.

The first "religious exemption" clause is very narrow and offers no clear protection to church-related businesses.

The second "religious exemption" clause fails to offer protection for all hiring by church-related organizations or businesses.

It is unlikely that the "religious exemption" included in the bill would survive court challenge.

ENDA would mandate the employment of homosexuals in inappropriate occupations.

ENDA violates employers' and employees' Constitutional freedoms of religion, speech and association.

ENDA would approvingly bring private behavior considered immoral by many into the public square.
