Tony Perkins Slams ENDA Backers

"How many of you would feel comfortable dropping off your kids in a school that encouraged faculty cross-dressing? At least three Senate Republicans would. Today, those leaders -- Sens. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.) -- threw their support behind a bill that would force sexual confusion on almost every classroom, day care, and summer camp in America. Insisting the legislation is just a harmless little 'anti-prejudice' bill, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee voted 15-7 to make employees' bedroom habits a preeminent consideration in hiring, firing, and promotion decisions.

"The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (or ENDA) has been debated in Congress for years, but it's never had this kind of backing from liberals, who -- just two years ago -- had so many reservations about the policy that it never made it to the Senate floor. Once Democrats realized that schools and other employers could be forced as part of the bill to hire transgenders, they removed their support altogether. Now, under the guise of ending 'workplace discrimination,' ENDA has new life, thanks in large part to a handful of Republicans who seem eager to sacrifice religious freedom and common sense on the altar of political correctness." - Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via an email that goes on for eight more paragraphs.
