FRC: Gays and lesbians shouldn't be employed in 'some' jobs

On a web page solely devoted to stopping the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), the Family Research Council finally lists reasons why it feels that lgbts shouldn't receive employment protection.

These reasons are more of the same nonsense regarding how a "Christian employer" should have the right to discriminate even if said discrimination is taking place in a secular business and how Christians on the whole will be "forced to accept homosexuality."

I was almost disappointed because I had anticipated the usual  "drag queens teaching school children" talking point which I have come to expect from religious right groups. But then I read the following:

* ENDA would mandate the employment of homosexuals in inappropriate occupations.

So according to FRC, lgbts should be barred from some occupations. The organization doesn't go into detail but based upon its past linkings of homosexuality and pedophilia, I don't think it's farfetched that FRC is saying that gays shouldn't be employed in occupations involving children.

Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but knowing groups like FRC, maybe the jump isn't completely inaccurate.

It's not "jumping to conclusions" when FRC has a history of conflating pedophilia and homosexuality. It's one of the things that really pisses me off, right up there with trying to curry sympathy for pedophiles by calling it a "mental illness".

I live with mental illness, and I don't CHOOSE to be incapacitated by anxiety, or to go into soul-crushing depressive episodes. Neither did I CHOOSE my orientation. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let some pig-ignorant douchebag (or a whole "organization" of them) tell me (or society) otherwise.
