The Christian conservative Family Research Council (FRC) on Thursday sent an email asking its members to pray against passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

ENDA, which was first proposed in 1994, seeks workplace protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The measure cleared a Senate committee with the help of three Republicans in July and a full floor vote is expected on Monday.

In its email, FRC claimed that ENDA will require employers and employees to “give special treatment to LGBT employees.”

“This law would mandate the employment of homosexual, bisexual and 'transgendered' individuals in inappropriate occupations, disregarding the fact that sexual conduct may be relevant to employment. ENDA would open America's businesses to a host of lawsuits and, I predict, more anti-Christian bias in business, just as is now happening in the military,” the group wrote.

The group's prayer: “May ENDA, first introduced in 1996, be decisively defeated. May deceptive and inadequate religious liberty amendments not distract Congressmen from taking a principled stand on the issue. May God intervene to prevent furtherance of this law, which would plant homosexuality even more deeply into the fabric of our society. Bring millions who need Christ into His kingdom, including those involved in sexual sins, both homosexual and heterosexual.”
