Family Research Council (FRC), the Christian conservative group headed by Tony Perkins, is calling on members to pray against passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which seeks to prohibit workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

ENDA cleared the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee in July. Three Republicans – Senators Mark Kirk of Illinois, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Orrin Hatch of Utah – joined all Democrats in sending the bill to the full Senate. The Senate could take up the bill as early as this month.

“May God's people pray and fast for God to excise the root of our nation's sexual immorality, extreme as it has become,” the group wrote in its latest round of “prayer targets.” “May believers repent and show zeal for God's honor that overshadows the activists who seek special legal status and benefits for what the Bible calls abomination. May ENDA be stopped in its tracks!”
