It’s Viewpoint Blackmail!
The voices on the far right were shrill yesterday over President Obama’s new executive order protecitng LGBT employees. Tony Perkins cries ‘blackmail’: “President Obama has ordered employers to put aside their principles, and practices in the name of political correctness. This level of coercion is nothing less than viewpoint blackmail that bullies into silence every contractor and subcontractor who has moral objections to homosexual behavior. This order gives activists a license to challenge their employers and, expose those employers to threats of costly legal proceedings and the potential of jeopardizing future contracts.” Funny how the bigots are always painted as the victoms… what perkins is really saying is that they will be stripped of their “rights” to fire someone just for being LGBT. Oh, the horror.
Obama Is Telling Christians to Drop Dead
That’s Bryan Fischer’s take on the order: “Obama’s message in LGBT exec order to every Christian-run business in America: drop dead. It’s faith or funding. In LGBT order, Obama elevates deviancy, sexual disorders and sexual confusion above the First Amendment.” Funny, I wasn’t aware the First Amendment guaranteed federal contracts to Christian-owned businesses. You know there are two other options besides dropping dead. You could just treat your LGBT employees fairly. Or you could stop taking money from the government. You know, like most businesses do?
The Executive Order is A Weapon That Will Be Used to Punish Us
And NOM’s Bryan Brown chimes in: “The fact is that non-discrimination rules like the order issued by President Obama can become a weapon used to punish and harass individuals and groups who support marriage as the union of one man and one woman. As with the flawed ENDA legislation that was rejected by Congress, President Obama’s order has the great potential of putting employers in the position of standing up for their faith values or violating the new order. This will unnecessarily subject people of faith to harassing complaints and lawsuits.” And Brown ought to know about using rules and laws as weapons. He and NOM pummeled the LGBT community often enough with Prop 8 and its hateful ilk in state after state across the country.
