Concerned Women For America: No Equal Rights For Queers (Or We'll Shoot)

Pam Spaulding tips us to the latest bit of bile from the Concerned Women for America, who actually used a handgun to illustrate their opposition to employment equality for gays.
ENDA adds not only "sexual orientation" but "gender identity" to federal workplace anti-discrimination law. Thus, it takes an ax to the idea that sexual behavior has a natural normalcy or any relation to morality. It falsely equates a changeable condition (sexual desire) with race and ethnicity. Worse, it turns traditional values into a form of bigotry punishable under the law. People who like to describe themselves as "fiscal conservatives but social liberals" are fooling themselves. Without morality, you cannot have a sound economy, as Adam Smith pointedly observed. The left has long been at war against sexual morals for good reason. People conditioned to think as short-term opportunists instead of as members of the family tree are easy to manipulate. Just give them the false promise of a painless future free from individual responsibility.
And then there's this: "To put it more simply, a statute that directly contradicts God's moral law is illegitimate." These people will stop at nothing short of a complete Christianist theocracy. And the handgun is their ominous warning of how they plan to get there.

NOTE: Since Pam's post, it appears the CCWA has removed the handgun illustration from their article.
