Group: Non-Discrimination Law Has 'Chilling Effect'

Ad Feedback

The National Religious Broadcasters Association is raising concerns about legislation said to protect gay Americans from job discrimination.

NRB Vice President Craig Parshall told a Senate committee religious exemptions in the Employment Non-Discrimination Act are inadequate and would have a "chilling effect on religious organizations."

Democrats on the Senate committee argued similar laws at the state level have posed no significant problems.

Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., said workplace discrimination "is morally wrong and we must end it."

But Parshall maintained ENDA would "interfere" with the ability of religious organizations "to effectively pursue their missions."
