The National Defense Authorization Act has some discrimination buried in it

67870Lawmakers are in the final stages of approving the NDAA — which has to pass — but by doing so, they’re approving an amendment that applies

 the private employer religious exemptions of the Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act to religious organizations receiving any federal contract or grant – which could include universities and hospitals employing thousands of people.

As always, we here at Dating Jesus support everyone’s right to religious freedom — right up to the point where that freedom hurts someone else. I think that about sums it up.

And thanks, Leftover, for the link.

  1. What really burns my biscuits is this amendment has absolutely nothing to do with necessary DoD/DOE appropriations.

    However one feels about “religious freedom” issues, this type of political gamesmanship, forcing capitulation on a controversial issue in order to approve time sensitive legislation should not be tolerated by anybody. In any camp. Either Party.
