ENDA to End Game: The Legal Persecution of the Church
In my last entry: Style over Substance: The Fight in the Church I wrote how the content being preached in our nation’s churches is more emotion driven than thought driven. That we have turned out a nation of Christians that are more in touch with their feelings than the Word of God. The end result of this is our election of a body of atheistic, self-centered, and ego-maniacal legislators that have absolutely no regard for the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the desires of the constituents who sent them to Washington in the first place.
I have said in past entries: “Check your government before the government checks you”. This is precisely the reason why. After the legislators by force took over 17% of the nation GDP via healthcare, they are now set on to destroying why you believe what you believe. Enter the Employment Non-Discrimination Act or ENDA (see HR. 3017 and S. 1584). Even though both pieces of legislation provides religious exemptions (see Section 6 in both of them), If the Congress or the Equal Employment Occupation Commission (EEOC) is successfully able to redefine marriage then churches who would not hire people whose lifestyle does not fit into their employment criteria would be in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The EEOC’s definition of discrimination includes:
Denying employment opportunities to a person because of marriage to, or association with, an individual of a particular race, religion, national origin, or an individual with a disability. Title VII also prohibits discrimination because of participation in schools or places of worship associated with a particular racial, ethnic, or religious group (see http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/qanda.html). In essence, a back door (no pun intended) has been placed in the legislation. My conclusion is solidified with the comment of the new EEOC director Chai Fieldblum, an open lesbian who was appointed during the Easter Congressional recess when she gave her response concerning this issue, “Gays Win. Christians Lose”.
While we all need to be on faces crying out to God, when do we get up to fight? Solomon talked about there is a time and season for everything under Heaven: A time to cry; a time to make war (see Ecclesiastes 3:1,4,8)
Ask yourself when does the war time start?
