The ENDA FRC's unflipped wig

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council, a group that is considered completely mainstream in conservative circles, is now running the following graphic in opposition to basic workplace protections for LGBT people. No, this is not a parody image:

But wait, there's more! FRC's also launched a new website that implies that LGBTs, if they gain that pesky inability to be denied employment/fired because of who they are, are going to shut down America's small businesses:

Oh, and that's not all! For the same low price and scruples level, you can also see a new fear-ocumentary which uses figures like Jim "starving ourselves is what won Prop 8" Garlow, Rep. Virginia "Matt Shepard's murder wasn't a hate crime" Foxx (R-NC), and Austin "I've never met an ENDA straw man I wouldn't use" Nimocks to throw out incidents like the wholly unrelated and wholly misrepresented Ocean Gove, NJ, situation to make ENDA sound as grim-reapery to your ears as their above images ham-fistedly make it seem to your eyes:

So let's recap: LGBT folks' desire for fair workplaces will bring about a scythe-wielding masked skeleton, those same protections will put Mom & Pop shops in the retail retirement home, and the whole thing causes grown adults to sit in front of a camera and throw everything but the kitchen sink at certain lives and loves (and they'd surely haul out the sink, too, if they thought a tossed faucet would keep the public from paying attention to their unsavory agenda)

If you think they are just showing "Christian love" to us gay folk, then you're having a much better 4/20 than this writer is!
