ENDA MOVES FORWARD IN SENATE
By Rev. Ted Pike
31 Oct 09
The Anti-Defamation League's workplace hate crimes bill, The
Employment Non-Discrimination Act, S. 1584, will have its first Senate
hearing on Thursday, November 5 at 10 am EST in the Health, Education,
and Labor Committee.
ENDA makes it a hate crime for any business owner with 15 or more
employees to refuse to hire a qualified homosexual or fire him or her
because they are homosexual or exhibit homosexual behaviors at work.
It may also force churches to hire homosexuals in non-spiritual positions
such as church administration, education, maintenance, etc. (For more
on ENDA, read my 2-part article "How ENDA
Ends Workplace Freedom" Part
1, Sep. 15, 09 and Part
2, Sep. 17, 09. Available at Truthtellers.org/alertarchives.html)
Six weeks ago, the House held its first ENDA hearing. It was a triumph
for homosexuals such as Reps. Barney Frank and Tammy Baldwin because
the Republicans were un-alerted and unprepared. Only one Republican
out of eighteen in the Education and Labor Committee presented significant
Let's not let that happen in the Senate!
Call your members of Congress, as well as the pivotal members of the
Senate Health, Education, and Labor Committee with the following message
(Names available on the Action
Page at www.truthtellers.org ) Call
"Please oppose the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)
S. 1584 in its Senate hearing this Thursday.
• ENDA discriminates against business owners, forcing them to give
homosexuals hiring privileges – and protection from being fired,
above most Americans.
• ENDA discriminates against most American workers, making them
second class citizens.”
Don't be discouraged from militant activism because of recent passage
of the federal hate crimes bill. Six weeks ago, rebounding from homosexual
triumph in ENDA's first House hearing, the National Prayer Network
energized heavy calling to House Judiciary Republicans warning of the
upcoming hearing on ADL's very dangerous Cyber-bullying and AWARE bills.
Result: Republicans, forewarned and encouraged, effectively defeated
President Obama has said that passage of ENDA will be "a heavy
lift." Make it much heavier through a deluge of calls this week,
starting first thing Monday morning.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states
with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass
the federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
