The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is coming up for a vote in the House of Representatives by the end of September.
ENDA will be marked up in the House Education and Labor Committee (mark up involves adding or deleting sections to the bill) on September 19 and a vote in the full house is expected the following week.
ENDA is federal legislation designed to add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to federal law. If ENDA is signed into law, homosexuals, cross-dressers, drag queens, transsexuals, and even she-males will be considered protected minorities under federal law. ENDA applies to any business with 15 or more employees and will impact religious organizations as well. There follows a suggested letter you might address to your representative asking the bill to be defeated:
The Dear Representative:
I am writing to you to ask that you vote NO on H.R. 2015, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
Passage of ENDA is a primary goal of homosexual and transgender activists. They want to gain federally-protected minority status for sexual behaviors that are changeable and treatable.
ENDA will provide federal protection for a whole range of sexual orientations and Gender Identity Disorders (GID), which are listed in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Individuals with GID include cross-dressers, drag queens, transsexuals, and even she-males (individuals who go through only half of a so-called sex-change operation. They are male from the waist down and female from the waist up.)
ENDA will make these individuals a federally-protected minority group. These are individuals who have seriously disordered thinking about who they are. They need therapy, not federal minority status under the law.
Likewise, ENDA defines “sexual orientation” as: “homosexuality, bisexuality and heterosexuality” but also includes the phrase “actual or perceived” sexual orientation. This opens up ENDA to protecting a whole range of bizarre sexual orientations listed in the APA’s DSM.
Now is the time. Speak up or forever hold your peace!
