BarbWire Headline Of The Day

The “breaking news” is that Paul Ryan voted for ENDA eight years ago, therefore he hates Jesus. Linda Harvey must be on Eugene Delgaudio’s mailing list. She wails: Is this a trick? It’s certainly not a treat. America may be handed a Speaker who will open the door for the “gay” lobby to achieve its fondest dream, even beyond marriage. ...

Maggie Gallagher Has The EEOC Sadz

“On Friday, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission made a remarkably lawless decision: it unilaterally added ‘sexual orientation’ to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, something wholly unjustified by the text, by the history, or by the plain meaning of the statue, hijacking the civil rights movement in a profound new way. Everyone knows the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does ...

Email Of The Day: Eugene Delgaudio

“Dear Joe, Congress’s lame duck session begins today. As you’re reading this email, the radical Homosexual Lobby is pulling out all the stops to bend the ear of Republican House leadership.

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“As even the Left turns its back on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to give homosexuals and transgenders special rights in the workplace, the White House stubbornly plows ahead, insisting that it will defy Congress and enact a smaller version of the law by executive order. Angry the policy wouldn’t go far enough in handcuffing employers with religious beliefs, most homosexual ...

Tony Perkins On ENDA

“Speaking of ideological oppression, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is full of it. But apparently, not full enough to suit the radical Left. After months of demanding action, liberals are abruptly bailing on the legislation, which many of them called their top legislative priority. The about-face comes just days after the Supreme Court upheld the religious rights of businesses like ...

Chad Griffin: HRC Supports ENDA, But…

“The Human Rights Campaign supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act for a very simple reason.

“The morning the sun rose after the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, we all woke up in a changed and intensified landscape of religious exemptions being used as an excuse to discriminate.

Quote Of The Day – Matt Foreman

“Hobby Lobby dramatically escalates the harm that will be caused if President Obama succumbs to growing pressure from religious and anti-gay forces and (with implicit or explicit approval from HRC) puts an ENDA-like religious exemption in the promised Executive Order (EO) to prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination by federal contractors. While largely under the radar, this is, in fact, a crisis situation. ...

Perkins Has The Executive Order Sadz

“After 30 days of nonstop, in-your-face celebration, the White House is capping off ‘gay pride’ month with its biggest gift yet.

For the far-Left, it caps off a long fight to get the administration to ...

This action is wrong on the ...
