Robert Jones Supports Crossdressers Over Christians

State Rep. Robert Jones wants to discriminate against Christians and others who don't want to hire crossdressers and others with particular 'sexual orientations' and 'gender identities'.

Forum on gay/lesbian discrimination protection set for Monday

Meanwhile, State Rep. Robert Jones, D-Kalamazoo, is co-sponsoring legislation that would give statewide reach to gay protections proposed in Kalamazoo's rescinded ordinance.

House Bill 4192, introduced by Rep. Rebekah Warren, D-Ann Arbor, would amend the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to add "sexual orientation, gender identity or expression" to the classes protected from discrimination in Michigan employment, housing, public accommodations, public service and educational facilities.

The bill also would require contractors to provide statements that their employment practices do not discriminate against gays, lesbians and transgender individuals.

If the bill becomes law, it would provide, on a statewide basis, all the protections now being debated here.
The bill is being pushed by radical leftist billionaire Jon Stryker.

The Michigan Secretary of State's Web site shows Kalamazoo billionaire and political benefactor Jon Stryker made campaign contributions to Warren, the bill's sponsor, and at least five of the bill's eight co-sponsors, including Jones.

Jones said donations from Stryker, who heavily bankrolls state and national gay-rights causes, had no influence on reintroducing the bill.

"Not at all," said Jones. "(Stryker) contributed the maximum $500 to my campaign, and I have not been solicited to support this."
Jones wants to punish anyone who disagrees with Stryker's 'gay rights' agenda.

Isn't religious choice already protected in the Elliott Larson Civil Rights Act?

If you work with food, employers can demand no facial hair, and long hair tied back or in hair nets, ect...

Think about, if you took your life savings and invested into a business.
Lets say I showed up to work for you, with a mohawk haircut, nose rings, spiked leather, and a tattoo of a swastika on my forehead. but the law said, you have no right to do anything about it.

Would your customers be offended? Probably, would some not ever come back to your place of business?, probably

Is it really any different with crossdressers? If a guy wants to prance around in womens clothes and wear make-up, fine, but, on his own time. What is next?, every business must provide bathroom facilities for transexuals???

I would not go back to a store that allows employees to be crossdressing, it is to freakish for me, I think it is bad for businesses that are probably having a hard time keeping there doors open with this lousy economy.
