Barney takes step out of 'T-less' doghouse

Divisive ENDA version advances divisivisely

Well, so much for wiping the sh*t off the ENDA fan; the House Committee on Education and Labor has sent the Employment Non-Discrimination Act to the full House without the inclusion of gender identity.: House committee passes non-inclusive ENDA [P1Q]...

TVC to followers: Let's 'drag' down ENDA!

As a way to rally their followers into writing their legislator and demanding that they vote against ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act), those silly Californians at the Traditional Values Coalition are running this ridiculously over the top image: Yes, because...

FOF pics get even more shocking

Well, Focus on The Family's trend of using ridiculously fear-mongery imagery continues today. This is how they have chosen to highlight a story regarding the upcoming vote on ENDA (The Employment NonDiscrimination Act): Ah, yes. If our nation votes to...

Come on guys and gals, don't eat your own

With our community apparently incapable of understanding the concept of keeping your internal strife to yourself and instead combatting your opposition (a strategy our opposition has mastered to perfection), the public battle over trans-inclusive ENDA vs. gutted ENDA continues to...

Another hour, another ENDA letter

A few hours ago, we told you how 90+ LGBT groups had banded together to tell Congress to leave The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in its original, trans-inclusive state. Well now, another set of groups has released their own ENDA-supporting...

In the ENDA, these 90 groups hope to prevail

So we told you on Friday how it was seeming increasingly likely that transgender protections were going to be dropped or at least separated from The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). And before that, we told you how a handful of...

Divided we now stand to pass a non-united measure this fall

Well, as suspected/feared, it looks like The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will be separated into two separate bills: One geared towards sexual orientation and another geared towards gender identity. Advocate has the scoop: ENDA to be separated into two bills,...

Wherein we Focus on the Veracity

Continuing their quest to make the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) seem as if it would unfairly discriminate against anti-gay Christians rather than protect gays from unjust bias, the folks at Focus on the Family today say this: If Congress passes...

Wherein Matt 'races' to condemn 'she-males'

In a new commentary on The Employment NonDiscrimination Act (ENDA), the Concerned Women For America's liability-in-waiting, Matt Barber, says many egregious things. For one, he completely throws out the possibility that either gays or transgenders could have any bio-genetic root...

There's simply no ENDA to TVC's fibbing

If you're a regular reader, you might remember how we have on numerous occasions pointed out how our right-wing opposition often defines "sexual orientation" so that includes a whole laundry list of certain behaviors (called paraphilias). They do this so...

Is there no ENDA to Peter's fallaciousness?

So we all know that Peter LaBarbera of the Americans For Truth group is no fan of pro-gay rights measures. However, we really wish he wouldn't lie about them. This is short section pulled from a very lengthy email that...

'The Tammy Baldwin Cross-Dressing Cashier Bill' was surely their second choice

So we saw the Traditional Values Coalition mercilessly trash federal gay-centric hate crimes protections, which they referred to as a "Pro-Homosexual/Drag Queen Bill". So as they gear up to attack the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), what name are they giving...
