What is ENDA? Its the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. It is a piece of legislation proposed in the United States Congress that would prohibit discrimination in hiring and employment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity by civilian, nonreligious employers with at least 15 employees. (Wikipedia)
This legislation’s name may sound fair, but at its core its deceiving. In truth, it will give special rights to men and women who engage in homosexual behavior. In other words, it forces Christian schools, colleges, businesses, day care facilities, and other organizations to employ people who are homosexual. It will allow homosexual and cross-dressers special privileges in the business arena. Businesses wont be allowed to fire such people even if their behavior hurts them financially. In addition, you will no longer be able to share your faith because its offensive. In other words, Biblical morality becomes illegal. How’s that for a piece of legislation?
This legislation was first proposed in 1994, but has been shut down time and time again. Today, its back with vengeance and considering the political climate in our society, you can only image the possibility of this being passed. We have a liberal majority, a strong homosexual media, and most importantly a president who supports homosexuality.
“…Biblical views on homosexuality are ‘outworn’ and must be discarded.” President Obamaaddressing a crowd of homosexuals and activists.
The goal of this administration is to crush any Biblical views that stand in their way of fundamentally transforming America. ENDA, is one way to reach that goal.
Our rights are literally at risk of being extinguished by a quick vote of Congress. The right to live and share our faith is on the table. We can’t just sit back and let it happen.
Did you know that in Canada a version of this bill is already law? Here is one example of what happened to a Christian ministry with this bill in affect.
“The evangelical Christian Horizons ministry, dismissed a lesbian employee for lying about her immoral sexual behavior. The woman sued under Ontario’s ENDA-type law.
The ministry was fined $23,000, plus two years of back pay, and ordered to indoctrinate its Bible-believing employees in the homosexual agenda.” (Campaign Life Coalition in Canada April 15, 2008)

In the US, New Mexico has issued an ENDA law. In Albuquerque a Christian photography business declined taking pictures of two lesbians. As a result the owners were fined $6,637 on top of all legal costs. (Read about it here) (again this is just one example of many in New Mexico)
Shockingly, something similar will happen on a national scale if this legislation passes through Congress. And if passed, our President will sign it, no questions asked.
This legislation is already on the verge of becoming national law. If passed our freedoms will be sacrificed and Christians will end up with oppression like never before.
Now is the time to petition your elected officials to opposed any legislation that gives sexual preference higher priority than our religious freedoms. Now is the time to act.
