    • On June 05, 2010, by Winghunter - The Homosexual Bill of Special Rights (H.R. 3017) would force employers to hire radical homosexuals or face a federal lawsuit or jail time. Churches, daycares, nurseries, private schools and businesses would all be forced to adhere to the new law, no matter how inconvenient or detrimental to the business the employee might be. Employers would be unable to fire troublesome homosexual employees for fear of prosecution.
