About Those Switched House Votes

Yesterday, there was quite a commotion on the floor of the House of Representatives about an amendment pushed by the Gay Mafia.  Several Republicans switched their votes to defeat it, which prompted Democrats to carry on and play the outrage game.

Oh, you want a less biased view of what happened?  Here is The Hill’s reporting:

The failed amendment would have effectively nullified a provision in the defense authorization that the House passed late Wednesday night. The language embedded in the defense bill states that religious corporations, associations and institutions that receive federal contracts can't be discriminated against on the basis of religion.

Democrats warn that such a provision could potentially allow discrimination against the LGBT community in the name of religious freedom. Maloney's amendment specifically would prohibit funds to implement contracts with any company that doesn't comply with President Obama's executive orderbanning federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT workers.

Thus what Republicans voted down was another attempt to put LGBT demands over religious freedom.  The Obama regime has already attacked religious freedom among the military and pushed political correctness and the LGBTQXYZ agenda in the armed forces as well.  The amendment would have furthered that.  A narrow majority in the House rightly said, “No.”

But that is not how it being reported.  Fakebook Facebook is yet again a negative example of media bias, describing the story this way in its trending section:

House of Representatives: Verbal Clash Occurs on House Floor After LGBT Rights Bill Defeated

No mention of the religious freedom issues involved in the headline.  One would think it was all about the mean majority defeating the rights of those poor, put upon, LGBT people.

And elsewhere one has to dig deep to find out that the defeated amendment would have further eroded freedom of religion.  Even (especially?) a Google search is not as helpful as it should be to get to the heart of the matter - that this was a fight over freedom of religion.

But the LGBTQXYZ agenda is so much more important than Freedom of Religion to the “mainstream” media and Silicon Valley, don’t you know.

Anyway, although I have studies to attend to, I wanted to do my part to blow the cover off this spin from Silicon Valley and the “mainstream” Democrat news media.
