Symbols of Revolution

Pat Buchanan has written a typical hard-hitting column on ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Buchanan is right that such legislation effectively criminalizes Christian conscience and curbs liberty by compelling employers to hire those they would choose not to. As Pat says, "A fair headline you will not see in the Times might read, 'House Tells Employers: Hire Homosexuals—or Else!'"

But 'tis part of the revolutionary spirit of the age. Liberty is being steamrolled in the name of equality. As I wrote recently, "The problem with granting non-discrimination status to homosexuals is that it deprives Christians, and many others, of their right to shun moral perversion."

Oh, and don't miss Pat's humorous riff on Stonewall: "Our Revolution had Concord Bridge. The French Revolution had the fall of the Bastille. The civil rights movement had Selma Bridge. The gay rights movement has—a bar fight in Greenwich Village."
