An April 3 WorldNetDaily article by Drew Zahn engages in baseless and false fear-mongering about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2009, which would extend employment discrimination protection to to sexual orientation and gender identity.
The lies start in the headline: "House plans to resurrect law requiring 'gay' hires." This falsely impllies that the bill mandates a quota of gays to be hired and that the law forces employers to hire a certain type of person, which is a complete and utter lie.
Zahn does concede that the bnill makes "exceptions for the U.S. military, religious organizations and some businesses with non-profit 501(c) designations," but complains that it "makes no provisions for business owners' consciences." He then leaps into wild speculation: "A small construction company that wanted to maintain a Christian reputation, for example, could be sued if it refused to hire transvestites."
Zahn goes on to quote a representative of the right-wing group Concerned Women of America as saying the bill creates "special privileges" for gays and the transgendered, and he also quotes professional gay-basher Matt Barber claim the bill creates "special rights." But as Right Wing Watch points out, anti-discrimination protections for things like religion have existed for decades and the right-wingers never once complained about the fact that Christians were receiving "special rights."
Futher, as per WND's typical anti-gay, right-wing bias, Zahn permits no supporters of ENDA to respond to the right-wingers' criticisms. Thisalso follows in the tradition of WND's lies about extending hate-crime provisions to gays.
