While speaking at a celebration of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank – an openly gay member of Congress, owned up to what many see as a radical homosexual agenda.
CNS News reports that Frank said:
“So, let me own up to that agenda. It’s to be protected against violent crimes driven by bigotry. It’s to be able to get married. It’s to be able to get a job and it’s to be able to fight for our country. Hey, for those, for those who are worried about the radical homosexual agenda, let me put them on notice – two down, two to go.”
Two battles are looming – gay marriage, and something called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
If Frank has his way, marriage as it has been practiced for millenia will end, only to be replaced with a politically correct version that would radically redefine the meaning of “family”.
The Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA, would equate homosexuality with race in employment. The problem with this legislation is the impact on Christian organizations. For example, a Christian school could be forced to hire a cross-dressing teacher.
According to a report at Culture News, this has already happened:
John Nemecek, a 55 year old male, a married father of three, was an associate professor at Spring Arbor University, a Christian college in Michigan when he began dressing as a woman and calling himself “Julie.” Fortunately, since ENDA is not yet law, the school was able to take appropriate action and refuse to renew the professor’s contract
The law would effectively neutralize the purpose of these schools. Many parents opt to place their children in Christian schools precisely because of the values the school teaches. But ENDA would put a stop to that.
Calling the bill “government-sanctioned” discrimination, J. Matt Barber wrote at the Washington Times:
ENDA would force – under penalty of law – Christian, Jewish or Muslim business owners to adopt a secular-humanist viewpoint, ignoring all matters surrounding sexual morality while making hiring and firing decisions. Unlike race or sex, homosexual and cross-dressing behaviors are both volitional and mutable. Nonetheless, and despite the reality that such conduct is in direct conflict with every major world religion, thousands of years of history and uncompromising human biology, ENDA would compel business owners with 15 or more employees to leave sincerely held religious beliefs at the workplace door and submit to the demands of the homosexual activist lobby.
Frank and his acolytes are good at political spin – the art of dressing a dirty pig in a tuxedo – but the details reveal a truly radical – and dangerous – agenda. After all, no one supports discrimination and no one supports “hate”.
But underneath the flowery language is a steaming pile of rot that threatens to destroy the fabric of our culture.
The President has promised to sign the bill if it gets to his desk.
Barber writes that the President appointed a “lesbian activist and sexual nihilist lawyer who in the past has publicly supported legalized polygamy and bisexual polyamory.” According to Barber, Chai R. Feldblum:
has repeatedly and candidly summed up the mindset behind the bill. She has publicly stated that the battle between religious freedom and unfettered sexual license (aka homosexual “rights”) is a “zero-sum game,” meaning the two cannot possibly coexist in harmony. It’s a “winner takes all” approach.
For those who object to the homosexual lifestyle, Feldblum’s attitude is, “Gays win, Christians lose.” In her view, there is no such thing as religious liberty, despite the Constitution. She admitted having “a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.”
With this bill, and others like it, President Obama and Congressman Frank are pushing an anti-Christian agenda.
This, then, is Barney Frank’s America. A place where religious liberty no longer exists, and to heck with that pesky Constitution.
At least now, he openly admits what many conservatives have believed for years.
