Joe Biden: 'Close to Barbaric' That Businesses Can Fire Gay Employees
Breitbart ^ | 3/23/14 | ap

Posted on 03/23/2014 9:18:51 PM PDT by Nachum

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it's outrageous that the country is even debating the subject.

Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it's "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

"Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say 'How in the hell can that ever been allowed?' The country's moved on, the American people have moved on," he said.

He said it was time for Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — known as ENDA — which would bar employers with 15 or more workers from using a person's sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for making employment decisions, including hiring, firing, compensation or promotion. Religious institutions and the military would be exempted.

Yeah... we won’t be passing ENDA at all. DOA in the House thankfully, and once we have the senate, we’ll have a good buffer against this Marxist crapola.

"Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it's outrageous that the country is even debating the subject." --------------- Really, Joe? out·ra·geous (out-rā′jəs) adj. 1. Grossly offensive to decency or morality, being well beyond the bounds of good taste: outrageous epithets. 2. Having no regard for morality. 3. Violent or unrestrained in temperament or behavior.

The SODIMITES will answer to their maker. This is all temporary - the moral ones have lost in America. How can one pray for this country, the only thing I know to pray for - and it sure isn't that republicans win more elections - is that the people of America will return to God, and stop all this perversion being promoted by an evil Government of men. AND no I am not asking for a Taliban type Government.

Apparently, the solution is to pass laws making it illegal to fire homosexuals. As an entrepreneur, what that means to me is what ever business I may be involved in will have no employees, gay straight or otherwise. That saves me from having some poofter sue me for firing it and eliminates the possibility of any accusation of bigotry. Problem solved.

Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, ...

What Biden is "overlooking" concerning his statement about Congress legislatively addressing remedies for workplace discrimination against gays is the following. With the exception of the federal entities indicated in the Constitution's Clauses 16 & 17 of Section 8 of Article I as examples, not only have the states never delegated to Congress, via the Constitution, the specific power regulate intrastate workplace issues, the states uniquely having the 10th Amendment-protected power to regulate such issues, but also consider the following. Neither have the states amended the Constitution to expressly protect so-called gay "rights."

So if Biden really wants the feds to have the constitutional authority to make laws which outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, this is what he must do. Biden must work with Congress to propose an amendment to the Constitution to the states which will expressly give gays the workplace protections that he wants them to have. And if the states choose to ratify Biden's amendment then gays will have constitutionally enumerated workplace protection and Biden will be a hero.

Here’s the other problem. I would be reluctant to hire an openly gay person if this passes, even if qualified. If I fire this person for work reasons, there’s a federal lawsuit.

I'd like to know how often employees are fired for no other reason than for being gay. I doubt this is a statistically significant issue.

Then again...if there were any real significance involved, would they even let Drunken Joe Biden flap his gums about it?

It's the transformation from "The perversion that dare not speak its name, to the perversion that can't shut the hell up!"

I’m totally against it. Why, now what kind of rightwing movie production company actually fired liberals every election like clockwork? (cough)

What is barbaric is the murder of millions of innocent unborn children, a kind of infanticide that Joe Biden applauds.

Barbaric is a society that forces celebration of sodomy and perverts what 5,000 years of civilized society has deemed as marriage.

Same here. I paid a rather substantial premium to get the best, and I didn't ask about their sex lives. The only time it came up (and the only time I knew an employee was gay) was a guy who made a deadline (barely) with a low quality product, and a search of his work computer usage found more time on gay porn than on the product over the course of several weeks. If he'd been trying, I would have helped him to improve or chosen projects better suited to his strengths. Since he ripped me off for paid work time, I fired him for low quality work without mentioning that I knew how he was spending his time.
