Expert Opinion.

“[Lesbian legislature Tammy Baldwin] said she is “very optimistic” that Employment Non-Discrimination Act and a hate crimes measure would pass Congress next session, particularly if Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, who has supported the initiatives, takes the White House… Baldwin also said there are difficulties in repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Defense of Marriage Act because some of the lawmakers who voted for the measures in the 1990s are still in Congress.” [Washington Blade]

      So lets not worry about the two acts that actually force the government to actively discriminate against us because getting rid of them might be “Difficult”. Typical Politician. How can ENDA stand up in court when all the company has to do is point to DOMA and Don’t ask Don’t Tell and say to the court “The govt. promotes active discrimination against gays”.
