    No, I did not.

    If you can't deal with equal rights for every human being, maybe you're living in the wrong country.
    Except the law does take my rights away. The law can't make rights equal by stripping one party of their rights to give someone else more than their rights.

    I'm an egalitarian. I want everyone to have equal rights across the board with no preferential treatment shown for anyone for any reason.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    "The Senate passed a historic piece of gay rights legislation Thursday that would ban workplace discrimination against gay and transgender employees, another milestone victory for a gay rights movement that has been gaining favor in the courts and electoral politics.The 64 to 32 vote to approve the Employment Non-Discrimination Act marked the first time federal lawmakers had approved legislation to advance gay rights since repealing the military’s ban on gay men and lesbians in uniform in late 2010. Approval of the measure came two days after Illinois became the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage and four months after the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioned federal recognition of legally married gay couples.But ENDA faces a steep uphill climb in a GOP-controlled House still dominated by social conservatives. House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and his lieutenants think the measure is too broad and is unnecessary; they think that the people ENDA is intended to protect are already covered under existing federal, state and private workplace protection laws.

    If you think that the 1964 Civil Rights Act law has taken away any of your rights you will get no sympathy from me.

    I'm not looking for your sympathy or even your approval, but just stating a fact.

    the ENDA bill was referred to

    of course Boehner thinks because "stereo typical" his team doesnt support equal rights for gays

    but that but there's no logic behind his thoughts, if you or him disagree the solution is simply. all one would have to do to make thier point is point out where sexual orientation is covered, its not, hence this bill and the 1000s that are at state, county, municipality and even corporate levels

    I have explained to you many times exactly why you don't understand human rights and I have no reason to explain it to you again.
