Say No to EHEA

ACTION ALERT: Say NO to dangerous legislation

EHEA: Deceptive and dangerous!

It has been deceptively titled the “Equal Housing & Employment Act.”

EHEA for short.

Anti-family leaders in the Ohio Legislature have promised to make passage of EHEA a priority in 2009.

Do not be misled by that deceptive title! In reality, EHEA is not about equality at all. It is about inequality, discrimination and special advantages. Inequality and discrimination against employers, property owners and all Ohioans ho hold to traditional Judeo-Christian values regarding human sexuality, and special advantages for a select few persons who identify themselves by their “sexual orientation” or “gender identity expression.”

Just how dangerous is this bill? Consider a few of its inevitable consequences:

  • Employers will be coerced into establishing quotas for those who identify themselves as homosexual, bisexual or transgendered.
  • In their hiring practices, churches will be required to prove that they do not discriminate against persons whose lifestyles are contrary to church beliefs.
  • Students who believe that homosexual behaviors are contrary to Biblical teaching would be forced to remain silent or risk being criticized, ostracized and penalized.

And the list goes on.
