It just never stops, the AFA has to be one of the prime anti-constitutional groups I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. Their leader, Donald E. Wildmon has a vision of the U.S. not in the 1950’s, but the 18th Century. Except in his vision the church wouldn’t control public behavior, he would.

ENDA: Work place is the Wrong Place for Sexual Politics

Let your U.S. senator know you oppose ENDA

May 6, 2008

Dear ,

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has passed the U.S. House and Senator Edward Kennedy is now leading the push for a vote in the U.S. Senate. ENDA is aimed at providing heightened protections for a particular sexual behavior – homosexuality. It would grant special consideration on the basis of “sexual orientation” that would not be extended to other employees in the workplace.
ENDA violates employers’ and employees’ Constitutional freedoms of religion, speech and association. The proposed legislation would prohibit employers from taking their deeply held beliefs into account when making personnel decisions. This would pose an unprecedented intrusion by the federal government into people’s lives.

Please tell me, what workplace have you ever been in where everyone had to play nicely together despite their backgrounds? I’ve worked with all sorts of people. Some I didn’t like but in a professional environment you have to communicate, play nice, you know how it goes.

According to the AFA, your deeply held faith allows you to violate my Constitutional rights. This is particularly worrisome as we’ve already seen Muslim taxi drivers refusing to carry passengers that have alcohol with them, or pharmacists who refuse to dispense birth control or the RU486 abortion pills.

And not to sound the alarm, but in the UK, the Muslims are taking it further, with their own Sharia courts, etc. How long before they break off a part of the already tiny UK for themselves, or France, or Germany.

We’ve already seen what language preference can do. Look at the Quebec struggle.

ENDA would approvingly bring private behavior considered immoral by many into the public square. By declaring that all sexual preferences are equally valid, ENDA would change national policy supporting marriage and family.

It’s obvious that the real agenda behind the innocuously named Employment Non-Discrimination Act is a push to enshrine homosexuality in national policy. This dangerous legislation would dramatically expand the government’s reach into your work place and create unnecessary work-place conflicts and lawsuits. ENDA is a sweeping employer mandate to create special new legal protections based on “sexual orientation” (or “perceptions”).

In about every place I’ve worked there’s at least one person who plasters their workspace with religious icons. In each instance I’ve never had them overtly push their religious views at me. The fact that they have those icons at their desk bothers me a bit but I can’t stand a desk covered with figurines, etc. be they religious or not.

The other thing I’ve noticed is that the hyper-religious tend to be people who were once rather lascivious or violent people in their youth (The first 30 years). Sure it’s great that they turned their life around but couldn’t it have been done without the strong dose of religion? A board certified psychiatric professional would have been a better choice.

Think about that for a moment. If you’re a religious type you got to your priest, pastor, minister, etc for counseling. But who do you think is better equipped to counsel you, a religious cleric whose studies didn’t exact touch on modern day psychology, or someone who has done years of training on the subject of human behavior and the human mind.

I just wish the AFA would shut the hell up. My guess is that Federal ENDA will pass with a big enough margin that it would override Bush’s signature. I certainly hope so.
