Illinois Family Institute E-Alert: Two Dangerous Bills in Congress
by David E. Smith, Executive Director -Illinois Family Institute
Listen to IFI's Family Update
Two dangerous pieces of legislation slated for major Congressional action.
TWO ACTION ITEMS:
1) The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) would add gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons to the list of federally protected groups included in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This bill would institutionalize homosexuality and other long condemned sexual and social behaviors to a protected right under the law, and it would punish employers, landlords and others who discriminate in any way against such persons.

2)The U.S. Senate may soon be reconsidering the federal "hate crimes bill." Like its counterpart in the House (which has already passed) S.1105 calls for federal intervention and a higher level of prosecution effort for criminal acts committed against certain categories of people -- including those identified by a particular "sexual orientation" or by their "actual or perceived gender identity."
In short, this bill, if passed into law, could be used as a tool to advance the homosexual agenda through the enactment of federal laws that recognize homosexual behavior as civil right that needs special government protection. IFI will continually strive to educate people to the fact that, unlike race, sexual orientation is a behavior that is changeable -- as evidenced by the thousands of ex-"gays" living happy lives today.
>>>CLICK HERE to contact Senators Durbin & Obama to ask them to please vote AGAINST this Hate Crimes bill, and in so doing, protect free speech and religious freedom.
Pro-homosexual forces are pushing two anti-family, anti-faith bills -- workplace non-discrimination and federal hate crimes legislation -- both are slated for major Congressional action this month.
Last week, the House of Representative's Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions Subcommittee held hearings on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). The subcommittee hearing is the first step, followed by a full committee hearing, and then a vote on final passage in the House of Representatives -- all of which is likely to happen within the month of September.
Make no mistake, over the next few days and weeks, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) -- the $30 million homosexual lobby in
Also, the U.S. Senate may reconsider the Hate Crimes bill sometime this month. But regardless, we have to continue to speak out in support of the legislation in order to combat the homosexual lobby's on-going campaign of misinformation.
To stop these ominous bills from advancing, we need every single person who reads this email to take a little time to communicate with their elected officials in
We must speak out against these bills! Please take action, and encourage all the like-minded people you know to communicate with Congress against the hate crimes bill and against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
