    New bill would gives special preference to homosexuals

    Call your representative today!

    A new bill, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), has been introduced in the House of Representatives by homosexual Congressman Barney Frank. The bill (HR 2015) would force organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Veterans of Foreign Wars, day care centers, Christian business owners, adoption agencies, public schools, municipalities and a host of other businesses and organizations to hire homosexual applicants.

    ENDA would make it illegal to fire, refuse to hire or refuse to promote an employee based on his or her sexual orientation or "gender identity." Such acts would be considered crimes subject to severe penalties. For a list of the co-sponsors of ENDA, Click here .

    The same day that ENDA was introduced, another bill — commonly called the Hate Crimes Act (HR 1592) — cleared committee for a full vote by the House. The Hate Crimes Act criminalizes a vast array of state and local acts and threatens religious leaders with criminal prosecution for their thoughts, beliefs, and statements.

    The intent of the Hate Crimes Act is to give special status to homosexuals. Republicans tried to expand the “protected class” in the bill to include senior citizens, pregnant women, prior victims, children under 18, the unborn, court witnesses, the military and more. Democrats defeated all amendments, projecting the welfare of homosexuals above other classes of citizens. The House Judiciary Committee then passed the bill on strict party lines —20 Democrats for and 14 Republicans against.

    I think if men want to marry men we should let them.
    If women want to marry women, we should let them.
    If people want to keep killing babies we should let them....in only three generations we wouldn't have any more democrats!

    Leave it be. Who cares ?

    I mean, will there now be an item in the application form where an applicant gets asked what his "sexual preference" is ? Absolutely not. A lot of homosexuals do not speak in an effeminate manner and do not sway their hips and flick their fingers and bend their wrists like some do. So how do you know one's sexual preference ?

    On the other hand, even if one's sexual preference is well known in the workplace, management can still get around to kicking him off the company thru other things, like performance, attendance, tardiness, professional conduct, professional demeanor, professional speech. Hey, if there's a will, there's a way.

    What's all the fuss about ?

    Now, again, if the homosexual makes advances on a fellow employee on company time and in company premises, who needs a bill prohibiting his firing ? Such things are in company rules and regulations that every employee signs as having read, reviewed, understood, and consents to.

    Hey, companies often make a big thing about their not discriminating on the basis of sex, race, and all that jazz, but in my experience that sure ain't true.

    Lotsa ways to get around laws and slogans if the hiring manager doesn't like your accent, or your skin color, or even just the way you part your hair or tuck your shirt, law or no law.
