E.N.D.A. MAKES CHRISTIANS INTO 'HATE CRIMINALS'
By Rev. Ted Pike
8 May 08
ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, passed the House last
year, and Sen. Edward Kennedy is now hyping efforts to pass it in
the Senate. ENDA is now on the Senate docket, and a vote could be
taken any time Majority Leader Reid decides.
ENDA is a federal workplace "hate crimes" bill which
would give "most favored" status to homosexuals in hiring
and firing, rentals, etc. It would deprive Christian employers and
employees of freedom to witness to or reprove homosexuals in the
workplace. Employers could not refuse to hire, or be able to fire,
a homosexual because of his sexual orientation.
Right now in the Brett Van Asdlen "hate crime" case in
Illinois, we are seeing the injustice and legal complications of
giving specially protected status to homosexuals (See, Christian
Teen Arrested for Hate Crime and Illinois
Pursues Hate Crimes Charges Against Teen). If two straight youths have a scuffle, it is a misdemeanor.
If a homosexual scuffles with a Christian teen like Brett Van Asdlen,
the homosexual can shout, "Hate crime!" and the Christian
youth could face three years in prison under a felony conviction.
ENDA will vastly increase homosexual privileges, stripping employers,
employees, and property owners of fundamental rights. It will exponentially
increase the power of homosexuals to sue or claim victimization.
Protest NOW to your Senators. Ask them to oppose ENDA. Send
an email or call toll free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121.
