US: Catholic priests oppose discrimination — against their right to discriminate
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops opposes “unjust discrimination,” but it also opposes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, according to a letter the group sent to the U.S. Senate.
The conference, which speaks for the Roman Catholic Church on public policy matters, sent the letter last week, saying ENDA “rejects the biological basis of gender,” “threatens religious liberty,” affirms and supports sex outside marriage, and could be used to support same-sex marriage rights — many of the typical complaints about LGBT-inclusive antidiscrimination laws.
“We will campaign vigorously for tolerance towards anyone who does what we tell them to. No matter how stupid it is.”
