ENDA is the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which is another name for a bill that would forbid employers from firing or refusing to hire anyone because of their sexual orientation or for asserting a different “gender identity” than their anatomy suggests.

Peter Sprigg, senior fellow in policy studies at the Family Research Council stated:

There’s a reason why we don’t allow discrimination based on race, which is that it’s a characteristic which is inborn, involuntary, immutable, innocuous and in the Constitution…All of those criteria apply to race. None of them applies to the choice to engage in homosexual conduct or in cross-dressing behavior, which is what gender identity deals with.


Sprigg went on to say that ENDA would:

…force religious business owners and workplaces such as Christian bookstores, religious publishing houses, pre-schools and religious television and radio stations to accept as normal any employee who has had a sex-change surgery, any employee who has changed or is ‘transitioning’ their public ‘gender identity’ (regardless of whether they have had surgery or hormone treatments), transvestites (people who dress as the opposite sex on an occasional basis for emotional or sexual gratification), and drag queens or drag kings (people who dress as the opposite sex for the purpose of entertaining others).

… Making matters worse, ‘perceived gender identity’ status does not require sex-change surgery, so ENDA would allow some biological males (who claim to be female) to enter and even appear nude before females in bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers. Situations like this have already been reported in several states with ENDA like laws such as Maine, Colorado and California.

…Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, a former judge, explained:

…The plain meaning of sexual orientation is anything to which someone is orientated. That could include exhibitionism, it could include necrophilia (sexual arousal/activity with a corpse) … it could include urophilia (sexual arousal associated with urine), voyeurism. You see someone spying on you (while you are) changing clothes and you hit them, they’ve committed a misdemeanor, you’ve committed a federal felony under this bill. It is so wrong.

Today 54 Democrats and 7 Republicans voted to bring ENDA to the Senate floor for debate tomorrow, Tuesday, and for passage perhaps by the end of the week. The 7 Republicans are Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Patrick Toomey. (R-Pa.). These 7 RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only] and the 54 Democrats need to be voted out of office whenever they run next.

ACTION STEP:  Please contact your Senators and ask them to vote “NO” on ENDA with or without amendments.
