Sadly, There’s an Underlying Presumption Here That HRC Actually Wants ENDA in Any Form

From Cathy Kristofferson at O-blog-dee-o-blog-da:

Last week, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) announced a $2 million campaign to push for the House Vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013 (ENDA). This campaign partnership with Americans for Workplace Opportunity (AWO) is similar to the $2.5 one announced last July 31st to push for the Senate vote.

Working closely with GOP donors, HRC seems content to codify legalized discrimination through the existing broad religious exemptions contained in the 2013 ENDA version passed by the Senate last fall. Organizations and individuals including Julian Bond and the ACLU have expressed grave concerns about these religious exemptions. They cannot go unchallenged.

My own thoughts:

A day that passes without HRC being protested is a day wasted.

However, the purpose of such protests should be to drive it out of existence and to force its books open to expose its inner circle to prosecution for fraud.

While I do appreciate this particular anti-HRC protest, I nevertheless have come to believe that the only thing worse for LGBT people in America than HRC itself is that portion of the non-caviar-tweaking, non-champagne-snorting LGBT population that is still naive enough to believe that HRC is either willing to change or even capable of doing so under any circumstances.

  1. Thank you for quoting Cathy Kristofferson from our blog at http://www.oblogdeeoblogda.me .Just to be clear, you have not posted a “BY” line it looks as if the post you are posting in was written by Cathy- but that is not the case.

    The second half where you say the following was NOT written by Cathy, but rather by the poster here which seems to suggest at bottom in small print by Katrina Rose:

    ” BLOG cross poster. So I just want to clear up the potential for confusion that the following did not appear on our BLOG and was NOT written by Cathy by:

    • Sorry about that. On some displays its more obvious than on others what is being quoted and what is original content.
