Today -- or at the latest, tomorrow -- the full House of Representatives will vote on whether or not to extend protections from employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The bill, known as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2007 (ENDA), prohibits employment discrimination against an individual on the basis of actual or perceived sexual orientation by employers, employment agencies, labor organizations, or joint labor-management committees.

Contrary to the lies being spread by anti-equality wing-nuts, the Bill does NOT extend preferential treatment to LGB employees. In other words, there are no "special rights."

And, despite what they are saying otherwise, religious organizations and the US military are free to go on discriminating against us with abandon!

If you ever said to yourself, "I want to make a difference" -- now is your BIG opportunity!

There is a good chance this legislation will pass but first we must overcome the objections raised by the hundreds of thousands of bigoted sheeple who will also -- upon orders from their leaders -- be writing and calling to attempt to defeat this legislation.

ENDA may not be the be all and ENDAll but it is just one more rail on the track to equal rights.


It's so easy, even a caveman can do it!
