Senate Signs on to Gay Agenda ENDA

While no one was watching (all eyes have been on the health care debacle), a large share of the Senate has co-sponsored the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, assuring infiltration of Christian schools by cross-dressers and every kind of sexual deviant.
There has not been a single media story on this Senate action!

UPDATE 8/27/09: Associated Press pushes ENDA (first mainstream media story)

-- From "Fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act introduced in the Senate"posted at CCH 8/12/09

A bipartisan bill (S. 1584) that would provide employment discrimination protections to individuals based on their sexual orientation and gender identity was introduced in the Senate on August 5, 2009. Called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), the bill would extend federal employment laws, which currently prevent employment discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, national origin, age and disability, to also cover sexual orientation and gender identity. The lead sponsors of the measure are Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Edward Kennedy (D-MA), Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Susan Collins (R-ME). They were joined in the August 5, 2009, introduction of the bill by 34 other members of the Senate. This is the first time that a transgender-inclusive version of the bill has been introduced in the Senate. The House introduced an inclusive version of ENDA in June 2009 (see ¶69,212D).

ENDA would prohibit employers, employment agencies, labor organizations and joint labor-management committees from firing, refusing to hire, or discriminating against those employed or seeking employment, on the basis of their perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity.
