Newly Mandated: Cross-Dressing in Workplace

Abby Zimet

Rightwing loonies, aka Family Research Council, are trying to raise money off their rabid fearmongering claim that the self-explanatory Employment Non-Discrimination Act will really "impose homosexuality and silence Christianity in workplaces" - though they probably meant to say 'impose homosexuality on' etc. They argue that this plot by President Obama and "Washington radicals" is "a grave threat to your traditional values," aka bigotry.

(The law could lead to) "an employer telling you
to remove the Bible from your desk because it is offensive to the
homosexual or cross-dresser he was forced to hire." - fundraising letter from FRC.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
