ENDA PROTEST FLOODS JUDICIARY
By Rev. Ted Pike
2 May 10
A week ago, I challenged Americans to energize House Judiciary Republicans
(veteran opponents of hate crime legislation) to vigorously oppose the Employment
Non-Discrimination Act. Rep. Barney Frank’s office said ENDA could
move forward to House vote within two weeks.
You did not disappoint me. Last Tuesday, Judiciary Republican offices
reported calls against ENDA were “heavy.” Rep. Sensenbrenner’s
office said ENDA protest was the top issue of the week!
People are demonstrating that, despite the rebuff of healthcare passage,
they are not giving up on the legislative process.
Now it’s time to turn our phoning firepower on the Senate. The
homosexual lobby is frantically trying to persuade at least 15 Senators
to get on board. Although liberal, these Senators are reluctant, largely
because of the bill’s outrageous “transgender” provision,
requiring businesses of more than 15 employees to allow men who claim
they are transitioning to women to enter female lavatories and showers.
Here’s a possible scenario of how this would occur on your local
college campus. If any male employee tells college administration that
he intends to become a woman, then, with no other evidence required,
this voyeur must be allowed to enter women’s P.E. facilities,
strip and shower with coeds. If authorities “discriminate” against
him, they can be fined heavily. If they persist in denying his “civil
rights,” they face imprisonment for contempt of court. A college
would undoubtedly lose federal funding.
Here’s our new battle plan.
1. First protest ENDA to the Senators
from your state. Call 1-877-851-6437 or 1-202-225-3121. The capitol
operator will route you to their offices.
2. Protest to those Senators
still straddling the fence, possibly because of the transgender
- Mark Warner (D-VA)
- Kent Conrad (D-ND)
- Byron Dorgan (D-ND)
- Tim Johnson (D-SD)
- Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
- Robert Byrd (D-WV)
- Harry Reid (D-NV)
- Max Baucus (D-MT)
- Ben Nelson (D-NE)
- John Tester (D-MT)
- Kay Hagan (D-NC)
- Evan Bayh (D-IN)
- Scott Brown (R-MA)
Tell their staffers, “Please tell the Senator
not to vote for the disgusting ENDA bill, S.1584. It would entitle
male employees who claim they want to become a woman to use female
restroom and shower facilities. We will never forget or forgive the
Democrats, especially at midterms, if the Senator votes for this obscene
It is clear that ENDA’s greatest vulnerability is its insistence
on allowing voyeurs to share bathroom and shower facilities, possibly
with your daughter in college.
There has never been a better time to defeat ENDA. New England’s
largest homosexual newspaper, www.baywindows.com,
'And things are looking a little tough for ENDA these days. The
right wing has stepped up its rhetoric considerably in recent days,
sounding an alarm. An editorial in the conservative Washington
DC on April 23 said “first graders should not be forced into
the classrooms of teachers undergoing sex changes. Religious broadcasters
and faith-based summer camps should not be forced to hire cross-dressers.
Women should not be forced to share bathrooms with people with
male body parts who say they want to be females. Yet those are
some of the likely results if Congress passes ENDA, said the editorial.
Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call ran two articles on Monday
reporting that support was slipping for ENDA because of the inclusion
of gender identity in this year’s bill.'
Let’s grease the skids even more for ENDA, sending it sliding
back where it came from: the pit of Hell.
