Being a business owner today is a hazard. There are so many laws and restrictions that it’s getting more difficult to stay in business. There’s a new law coming down the pike — the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) — that’s going to have unforeseen consequences.
ENDA is being pushed as a non-discrimination protection law. In reality, it’s a breeding ground for law suits, religious discrimination, and unemployment. Similar laws at the sate level have already put companies out of business.
Homosexuals are notorious for suing anyone who opposes their agenda. The courts have been stacked with leftist judges who are favorable to pushing the homosexual agenda. Look what happened in california when the majorty of voters opposed homosexual marriage. A single judge, who is a homosexual, overruled the vote.
How many times did we hear liberal pundits tell us that the passage of pro-homosexual legislation would not affect the general population, even those who oppose same-sex sex? I can remember talk show host Neal Boortz ridiculing people who opposed pro-homosexual legislation with this line: “How does pro-homosexual legislation affect you? No one is going to force you to marry a homosexual.”
The legislation will affect every business owner and religious organization. The Senate, with the help of some Republicans, has passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), a bill that would outlaw workplace discrimination against people who engage in aberrant sexual behavior. Republican senators John McCain and Orrin Hatch voted to pass the anti-freedom legislation.
We’ve already seen what existing pro-homosexual legislation has done to businesses at the state level.
“Even though gay marriage advocates often say those marriages won’t hurt others, business owners have been finding out that isn’t true. Companies, especially wedding-related ones, from several states have been sued and harassed for holding onto religious convictions. . . . The wedding industry [has] been hardest hit by the tension between religious liberty and gay rights, in spite of a recent Rasmussen poll showing that 85% of Americans think business owners should be allowed to deny services for gay weddings if they have religious objections. Other companies like Chick-Fil-A and Barilla Pasta have been targeted as well for making statements that angered gay activists.”
Engaging in certain sexual practices is not the same as racial distinctions. Race is not a behavior. A business should be permitted to discriminate against people who commit adultery or engage in premarital sex. Some companies won’t hire people who smoke. People who take drugs are discriminated against. “Peeing in a cup” is a standard hiring practice. If you don’t pee, you don’t work.
It’s behavior discrimination, and it’s legal, except when it comes to immoral, unsafe, and irrational sexual practices.
