Largest U.S. Muslim Organization Supports LGBT Anti-Discrimination Bill
Hmm I wonder how our “counter Jihad friends” will explain this. Off course they’ll claim its “taqiyyah” even through they have no idea what that word actually means, and it isn’t lying to promote Islam. Also contrary to what their supporters may say, many of them like Pamela Geller of course usually don’t really care about gay people, Just demonizing Muslims anyway they can. Regardless I’m happy to hear about this.

Last week, one of the clearest shifts in the decades-long debate over Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) came into light from the largest U.S.-based Muslim organization, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), joined a broad interfaith coalition, calling ENDA a “measured, common sense solution that will ensure workers are judged on their merits, not on their personal characteristics like sexual orientation or gender identity.”
In a historic advancement for the LGBT rights movement, the Senate on Thursday approved ENDA, a bill that protects against workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Despite advances in anti-discrimination in the workplace, Muslims continue to face unfair job discrimination. Our shared experiences of discrimination can provide a common basis to work with one another to mold a more inclusive America.
