Austin Ruse, the president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, cannot seem to fathom how gay rights leaders would want to involve themselves with transgender individuals. Following ENDA's passage in the Senate, Ruse spoke out, in typically conspiratorial fashion, about a future of quotas for transgender employees, whom he claims have "psychological disturbances."
Right Wing Watch posted Ruse's inflammatory statements:
Race hustlers everywhere know exactly where this is headed, toward self-imposed quotas by businesses large and small. The only way a business can inoculate itself against charges of discriminatory hiring practices is to hire the aggrieved class no matter what. If pushed by the Justice Department, Hobby Lobby’s only line of defense would be to trot out the transsexuals. They don’t even have to know how to type as long as they have lopped off their penises or at least wear dresses.
One of the truly strange things about the gay-rights movement is how free they are with their strangest cousins. You would think that even gay men and lesbians might be rather embarrassed by the T in LGBT. But so bold are they, so fearless, that they now lead with the T. Most Americans are rightly put off by such displays of obvious psychological disturbances.
After spitting his racist, homophobic, and entirely disrespectful rhetoric, Ruse expressed hope that Congress will see fit to bring down ENDA.
