David Christensen, FRC’s VP for Government Affairs, made the following comments regards the amendment that passed in the Senate Tuesday:
“The amendment added to ENDA today does virtually nothing to expand the already extremely narrow ‘religious exemption,’ and will do nothing to protect non-profits and businesses that operate from a faith perspective. Senators may be looking for political cover from this amendment, but ENDA removes the ability of non-profits, para-church ministries, and individual business owners to make their own decisions about appropriate conduct in the workplace. People’s religious freedom rights do not stop at their front door on their way to work, whether they are a business owner or employee. Senators concerned with religious freedom protections should oppose ENDA, as fundamentally bad public policy,” concluded Christensen.
And, ladies don’t forget you can not discriminate against girly-men using your restrooms or showers.
