    Re: Senate passes LGBT anti-discrimination bill

    It's not over yet. The GOP members of the house may be rethinking their strategies because moderation might mean future victory. Maybe. Look at the Senate and the cross-overs.

    Lets hope for the best. This is overdue and a good move for the Right to take.

    This is long over due.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    The problem is it will be abused. employees who are fired because of incompetence will claim they were fired because they are gay. No one should be fired because of their sexuality but and employer should have the right to fire or hire someone as needed....Good luck it passing in the HOR.

    Here you go. Just because you don't believe it does not mean that it doesn't happen. There should be laws on the books to stop this kind of non-sense.

    because the house is too spineless to let it come up for a vote?

    Because it's useless to put it up for a vote and it may be politically damaging to go through the exercise.

    This problem exists with race, gender, and religious discrimination too. Should it be legal to fire someone for being Christian?

    Duh! These are politicians we're talking about, Harry Reid included. However, once again and you should know this by now, IF the house allows a floor vote, even if the vote defeats the measure, the senate will then be free to take it up again. Only by refusing a floor vote in the house does the house prevent the senate from running over them, bypassing them.
