11/4/13. Employment Non-discrimination Act: Obama Supports Sexual Predators in US Classrooms, Will Congress?
“Our do nothing Congress is once again considering the passage of legislation protecting gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender men and women against workplace discrimination. The Employment Non-discrimination Act of 2013 or ENDA—supposedly supported by a majority of Americans—has just moved up on President Obama’s list of second term Executive Branch priorities.
Washington D.C. , our nation’s capital, where elected officials swear an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution, is about to destroy first amendment protections, criminalize conservative ideology, attack religious freedom, and assert themselves in private business practices to protect “perceived” sexual orientation and prevent sexual practices discrimination. In other words, establish special legal protections for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender) America (3% of US population), while potentially criminalizing the thoughts, speech, and religious practices of everyone else.
The text of the Employment Non-discrimination Act (EDNA) can be found here.
Although, the Employment Non-discrimination Act affects all workplaces of every employer (with 15 or more employees) in the nation, I would like to touch on one, Public Education.
Envision, if you will, a lover of children teaching in a public school classroom. Your child’s public school classroom. For years, this educator kept his sexual predilections (as most people do) to himself. Now, after Employment Non-discrimination Act passage, he returns to start the new school year as a woman, or a proud and public member of the North American Man Boy Love Association or a transvestite in drag.
Imagine your parental concerns about such an occurrence being dismissed by school administrators. There convenient excuse, “There is nothing we can do, federal law bars us from taking any action to have this individual removed from the classroom. It could also be interpreted as discrimination if we changed your child’s class. Therefore, your child, like all the rest will have to get used to it.” Moreover, imagine being sued in Civil Court for damages because you can no longer publicly oppose your child’s exposure to the LGBT indoctrination process sanctioned by your government in our nation’s public schools.
All of this is brought to you courtesy of the same government that cannot pass a bill requiring everyone working in public education to undergo a criminal or sex offender database background check. It is amazing that the government cannot agree to protect the nation’s children from potential violent sexual assault (in our Public Education system), but can find consensus and compromise on providing special protections for potential sexual perpetrators (in our Public education system).
According to a recent Huffington Post Op-Ed, titled “Congress Needs to Pass the Employment Non-discrimination Act” President Barrack Obama writes, “ENDA will provide strong federal protections against discrimination making it explicitly illegal to fire someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Obama also goes on to write, “Our nation’s journey toward equality isn’t complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law…”

President Obama fails to mention that the Employment Non-discrimination Act does not specifically define sexual orientation or sexual discrimination. If passed the Employment Non-discrimination Act of 2013 will also include interpreted protections for cross-dressing, serial masturbators, and members of the North American Man Boy Love Association, Sadomasochists, and those that find animals sexually attractive.
I live in a country that has seen homosexuality (once a bonafide mental disorder) re-invented as a healthy trait of balanced individuals (think Obama); a country that funds the aborting of over one million inconvenient babies annually; a country that, supposedly, now supports exposing our children to potential alternative lifestyle sexual indoctrination, and yes, sexual assault and child rape. In addition, if the Employment Non-discrimination Act of 2013 becomes law, parents and school boards that care, will be powerless to prevent it legally.
For years, members of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) have worked to normalize pedophilia (just as they did with Homosexuality in 1973) and have it removed from the bible of APA psychiatric disorders. According to some psychiatric experts, “If a person does not act on the fantasies or urges of pedophilia, he is not a pedophile. A person not distressed over the urges or fantasies and who just repeatedly masturbates to them has no disorder. But a person who is not distressed over them and has sexual contact with a child does have a mental disorder.”
I wonder what leading psychiatrists might say about the mental health of the federal government that may soon provide—through passage of Employment Non-discrimination Act of 2013—distressed or non-distressed LGBT miscreants with a readily available supply of potential fantasies and child victims. Moreover, what would they say about a President, who thinks this is a sound government policy?
Contact your representatives and demand they put an end to this.”
11/5/13. Seven Republicans join Democrats to pass ENDA bill in the Senate. The AP, onenewsnow.com
“Seven Republicans and 54 Democrats stood together Monday and cleared the bill past its first hurdle on a 61-30 procedural vote, setting the stage for debate on Tuesday and possible passage by week’s end. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act would prohibit workplace discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.
The legislation, the first significant gay rights bill since Congress ended the ban on gays serving openly in the military in 2010, faces strong opposition in the House, with Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, rejecting the measure.
Final passage would cap a 17-year quest to secure Senate support for a similar discrimination measure that failed by one vote in 1996, the same year Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act, the law prohibiting federal recognition of same-sex marriage.”
Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, whose two senators – one a Democrat, the other a Republican – both voted with the majority on ENDA:
“[Bob] Casey and [Pat] Toomey have sent a message to the religious community that their beliefs don’t matter, and that it’s okay with them if we’re forced to celebrate homosexuality.”
“They have shown their true colors in voting to advance this very discriminatory bill – and that even if it’s a Christian hospital or university, it doesn’t matter: you’ll be forced to hire someone like that.”
Hans von Spakovsky, Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow and former Justice Department counsel:
On the impact of ENDA on churches or faith-based organizations: “It depends on whether it’s a church or a church-run organization. And the further away it gets from the church, the easier it will be for people to impose this law.”
On the issue of bona fide occupational qualifications: “Under current law, if you run a girls’ camp it’s a bona fide exemption that you should be able to only hire women to be camp counselors. There’s no such exemption in this law [ENDA]. So that means if you run a girls’ camp and a guy applies who likes to wear drag, you are going to have to hire him.”
On the issue of the violation of an individual’s First Amendment rights under ENDA: “If you own an ice cream store and one of your employees, who is a guy, insists on coming to work in drag and you think it’s going to potentially have a bad effect on your customers, you can’t do anything about it.”
On the issue employers and hostile work environments: “An employer is responsible if a hostile work environment is created and what this means is that if someone in the workplace expresses an opinion about, for example, gay marriage or gays in the military, that would be considered creating a hostile work environment, and that person will be told by the employer You can’t talk about that.”
