The End of Religious Freedom in America

ENDA.jpgNo, this title does not mean that we evil atheists were finally able to ban someone's ridiculous "holy" book or even that we would want to do so. It refers to a very telling ad the Family Research Council is using to drum up opposition to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). You see, ENDA would extend workplace nondiscrimination protections to GLBT persons. To the degree that anti-gay bigotry and discrimination are synonymous with religion, it could indeed be a blow to religious freedom.

Looks like we have yet another fear campaign by Christian extremists who are fighting for the right to hate. ENDA would make it more difficult for them to discriminate, and so they oppose it.
