Stay classy, Family Research Council

As many of you know, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act is going through our various legislative bodies in an attempt to add "sexual orientation" to the list of things employers cannot discriminate against. Namely race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Now to most of us, we would simply think that meant you couldn't fire someone because they were gay. Oh no, dear readers, the Family Research Council is here to tell you that it means something much, much more sinister.
Earlier this month, the far-right Family Research Council (FRC) sent a fundraising action alert fearmongering about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which has been introduced in both the House and Senate and President Obama says he is “pushing hard to pass.” “This law would punish anyone in the workplace who dares oppose homosexual behavior, cross-dressing and other unhealthy behaviors,” said the FRC alert.

In a four-page solicitation letter mailed to supporters this month, which was obtained by ThinkProgress, the conservative organization went even further in its rhetoric, claiming that President Obama wants to “impose homosexuality and silence Christianity in workplaces”
Everyone is compulsorily ordered to be gay and Christianity is outlawed? I though that would have been harder to pass than health care but apparently not. I guess the only question is, soon to be gay readers, is if the Democrats will bundle this with the proposed legislation that forces mandatory abortions and conversion to Islam, or do you think they'll pass them separately so that we can have two ceremonies heralding the death of freedom, religion, and America?

I hoping for two. I already bought a cake shaped like George Washington kissing the feet of Osama bin Laden and we can cook an eagle on the grill for the second party. Ah, it doesn't matter, this is just something we'll have to hash out after Obama forces us to be gay.
