Following on the heels of an 'anti-discrimination' plan Christians insist would virtually outlaw their religious beliefs comes another proposal – introduced by openly homosexual U.S. Rep. Barney Frank – that requires businesses to give special privileges to "gay" and "transgendered" individuals.
Shari Rendall, director of legislation and public policy for Concerned Women for America, the nation's largest women's public policy group, said H.R. 2015, the "Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2007," would be a disaster.
"This bill would unfairly extend special privileges based upon an individual's changeable sexual behaviors, rather than focusing on immutable, non-behavior characteristics such as skin color or gender. Its passage would both overtly discriminate against and muzzle people of faith. Former Secretary of State Collin Powell put it well when he said, 'Skin color is a benign, non-behavioral characteristic. Sexual orientation is perhaps the most profound of human behavioral characteristics. Comparison of the two is a convenient but invalid argument,'" Rendall said.
The proposal, from U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., follows H.R. 1592, the House-approved plan that would add sexual orientation and gender identity to a list of valid arguments for allegations of a "hate crime" and allow the federal government to intervene when those occur, or even in order to "prevent" one..
..."This bill would force Christian, Jewish or Muslim business owners to hire people who openly choose to engage in homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors despite a sincerely held religious belief that those behaviors are dangerous, sinful and not in keeping with basic morality," added Matt Barber, policy director for cultural issues for CWFA....

Democrat Congress Goes Gay
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it does! Now the Democrat controlled congress wants to make it a "crime" for churches and Christian employers to deny a job to homosexuals or cross-dressers. Can you imagine a transgendered church receptionist? Under this new bill (H.R. 2015), it would be a "crime" for congregations and church boards to refuse to hire a gay pastor. I guess this is all starting to make sense now. The New Democratic Party is the new GAY party, using communistic legislation to force homosexuality on the mainstream population whether they like it or not. As a former Democrat, turned Republican, turned Constitutionalist; I can honestly say that neither political party represents the majority of America anymore. Republicans represent globalists and big business, while Democrats represent the homosexuals and marxists. That's it! There is no party for the people anymore. I suppose all of this communistic gay legislation makes perfect sense when you consider who's running the House of Representatives now, and the district she represents. Welcome to the new Democrat version of America - the totalitarian GAY USA! - where it doesn't matter what your religion says, or if you don't agree with homosexuality. Here in the new Democrat GAY USA we will shove homosexuality down your throat, and brainwash your children in our public schools, and you'll LIKE IT! Because if you don't, and you express that in any way, there's a concrete jail cell waiting for you just around the corner...
