Staff members for President Bush have helped congressional staffers work on "religious exemption" language for a new "anti-discrimination" proposal that actually would codify in federal statutes an anti-Christian bias, and that will make it harder for him to veto, according to an activist group.
"Americans For Truth has learned that a White House official has boasted to pro-family leaders attending a private administration briefing that White House staffers were involved in the negotiations to craft expanded religious exemption language for the new ENDA bill," according to Peter LaBarbera's Americans For Truth organization.
"At the briefing, the White House official did not commit to the assembled evangelical leaders that the president would veto [ENDA], saying that they will wait to see the bill's final language, according to our source. This is troubling in that vetoing ENDA in any form is regarded as a 'no-brainer' by pro-family activists, who are counting on Bush to stop it," he continued.
His organization is running a campaign to encourage people to contact the White House to express their opposition to the plan.
"Some religious leaders take comfort in ENDA's exemptions; we do not," he continued. "White House involvement in negotiations over ENDA is problematic in that makes it more difficult for President Bush to veto the bill.
"H.R. 3685's current religious exemption will hardly affect the many ways in which ENDA would erode and destroy the freedom of Americans to act on their deeply held moral beliefs about homosexuality," he said.
The proposal, for which homosexual and transsexual activists are crusading, "has tremendous potential to criminalize Christianity in the United States by creating federal 'rights' based on wrong and destructive lifestyle," he said.

It was the event in Crawford when “W” choked out on the pretzel. He didn’t have many brain cells to spare and being without oxygen damanged his brain enough for him to become a liberal.
They used to fax talking points. Now somehow they just send out thoughtwaves or give free samples of kool-aid to strategic, ummm, mouthpieces, and Poof! an instant plague of leftist rhetoric infects everyone with a freaking keyboard.

How is it leftist to be outraged by a report of White House supporting radical gay ideaologies?
Granted the source isn’t the best but you weren’t attacking the source, you were attacking FReepers.
Let's all go into spasms because some official tattled some hearsay that might or might not be true. This sounds like the typical madeup-redmeat that some groups throw out to the dupes to stir them up AND typically generate fund raising donations from said 'hyped up dupes'.
Gawd how dare we question the Great Leader?
“Gawd how dare we question the Great Leader?”
Yep, better get used to keeping your thoughts to yourself. Soon there will be special re-education camps for people who display inappropriate attitudes.
Unfortunately, it looks like the man I voted for has gone from “reaching across the aisle”, which is destructive (to our party and to our country) and disgusting, to “reaching across the border”, which is destructive and disgusting, to now, a “reach around” - also destructive and especially disgusting. What is wrong with this man?
Please, question the great leader. But don't confuse that with cheap smears based on dubious, sensationalist headlines found on fringe internet sites and echoed on internet forums.
Fifteen months left and counting of this retarded nincompoop.
We will probably get someone worse, but I need a breather.
Tell me...what does the statement mean?
It means that you wasted your time reading beyond the headline.
Seems as though many Freepers also suffer from oxygen deprivation.
The Bushes should be flushed down the toilette of political history.
Never again should a Bush hold any office of public trust.
Now that I think about it, your time would’ve been better spent composing a knee-jerk, anti-Bush diatribe.
