    LGBT Non-Discrimation Vote Passes Senate [W:215]

    NOTE: Don't have a link for this yet. Vote just passed the 50 vote threshold in the Senate. Will post a link as soon as one becomes available.

    It is only right that a person's private life is no damn business of the government, nor the business of whoever employs that person.

    EDIT: Final vote was 64-32.

    EDIT2. Got the link. Article is here.

    A person's professional life should be based on their skill at the job, and not their private life.

    I don't have issue with the L, G or B but the T might (?) be at issue in certain employment environments.

    Senate passes LGBT anti-discrimination bill

    Senate passes LGBT anti-discrimination bill - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- For the first time, the U.S. Senate approved legislation that would protect gay, lesbian and transgender employees from discrimination in the workplace.
    The Employment Nondiscrimination Act, or ENDA, passed the Democratic-led chamber on Thursday, 64 to 32.

    Very good news, too bad the house is a bunch of children and don't live in the real world where people can be fired for being in the LGBT spectrum and just pretend it is already against federal law. Sucks that they suck so much that something as wonderful and as liberating as this won't even make it to their floor.

    I agree with your take on this, even if it hasn't much chance of passing the House. I am curious, however, if it does pass, whether this is going to be used as a wedge to force states that currently ban gay marriage to approve gay marriage

    The Conservative strategy for addressing this is sticking their heads in the sand.

    Brilliant!
