Christian Hate Group Is Super Very Angry About Losing Senate Meeting Space

“It is shocking that a United States Senator would bow to pressure from these militants and refuse to facilitate the discussion of vital issues affecting children, family, life, and the economy. Groups like HRC have set themselves up as arbiters of what may or may not be discussed at public forums. Instead of meeting us in the marketplace of ideas, …

Brian Brown Has The ENDA Sadz

“We are very disappointed by the Senate’s passage of this bill.

Concepts like ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ are too vague to be a basis for such a law which could lead to individuals facing reprisals or even criminal …

FRC Praises Boehner On ENDA

“We commend Speaker Boehner for opposing ENDA because of the costly lawsuits that burden businesses in an already struggling economy. The law creates a new federal mandate on businesses based on sexuality and does not allow businesses the choice of taking those things into consideration when they think it is appropriate. For examples, businesses, including daycares and public schools, will …

Headline Of The Day

As I’ve said here for the last few years, there has been zero chance of ENDA’s passage in the House ever since the GOP assumed the majority in 2010. But with all of today’s news about the bill, please keep in mind that its presumed passage in the Senate WILL move the issue dramatically forward as it drags formerly recalcitrant …
