OBAMA – Grow Some Real Man Balls And Sign The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
Forget marriage and just sign this legislation. This would afford gay people some real protections, nation-wide.
Meanwhile, it is still legal in 29 states to discriminate against gays and lesbians in hiring and firing employees, and in an additional five it is legal to discriminate against transgender people. There has been a Democratic bill floating around Congress called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would extend the federal protections of the Civil Rights Act to outlaw discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Thus far Obama has said he supports the legislation, but has not called much attention to it.
