Bryan Fischer: ENDA = Jim Crow

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association's most visible (and most hostile) pundit is mad at Rep. Paul Ryan for supporting the Employment NonDiscrimination Act. Why? Because protecting LGBT people from basic nondiscrimination is, in Bryan Fischer's world, just like state-mandated racial segregation:


There is no reason to think that the homosexual lobby would not deliberately select values-driven businesses, and then send flamboyant homosexuals in to apply for advertised vacancies, just so they could use this law as a bludgeon to further pummel Christians into becoming the newest minority utterly deprived of their civil rights.

In fact, ENDA would represent the return of Jim Crow laws. Only now the people victimized would not be victimized based on the color of their skin but on the content of their character.

Oppose Jim Crow. Oppose ENDA.
FULL:
Bryan Fischer: Uh-oh. Ryan supports freedom-destroying ENDA [AFA]

Christians who lose the right to discriminate against gays in employment are the equivalent of those who suffered the brute injustice of the "separate and (un)equal" south? Kind of offensive, some might say. Who's hijacking the civil rights movement now, Bryan?
