100% Anti-Discriminatory Companies

(h/t - Dakota Voice) Though I don't think his posting about a list of gay friendly employers has the same intent.

For supporting an unhealthy and immoral practice, the homosexual group Human Rights Campaign has recognized 195 U.S. companies as having a perfect 100% score.

Worldnet Daily lists 195 companies that received perfect scores on the Human Rights Campaign's 2008 Corporate Equality Index and were determined to have policies that did not discriminate against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees and thereby promote diversity in the work place.

WorldNetDaily, of course wasn't publishing this list because they felt it was a good thing. They wanted to let their readers know who these companies were that promoted what they view as a deviant lifestyle and to again bring up the pending Employment Non-Discrimination Act currently being debated in Congress.

As the op-ed letter from Linda Schauer from the Concerned Women for America of South Dakota and WorldNetDaily's myopic concentration on this issue would attest, the far right must be very worried about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which would mandate that other companies which aren't so friendly to gays to become so.

The far right has for the most part successfully fought against gay marriage and now they are opening a second front against basic human rights. This time they want to make it tougher for gays to find a discrimination free workplace. And they wonder why candidates are avoiding their debates like the plague
