If my gay colleagues choose to jettison ENDA, I'm willing to back off. But the question with which I am left is: Now what?

Boehner is a Republican Representative that most recently, for me, was the face of our government shut down. Now he's the man who would block ENDA. Why are you standing in the way, Mr. Boehner?

ENDA has a problem: a disturbing religious exemption that has been included in the bill in one form or another ever since it was introduced in 1994. A Catholic school teacher who's done a great job for years could still be fired under ENDA if the principal discovers that she is a lesbian. That's abhorrent.

ENDA's religious exemption, which would extend far beyond churches, synagogues and mosques, effectively gives a stamp of legitimacy to anti-LGBT discrimination that our civil rights laws have never given to discrimination based on an individual's race, sex, national origin, age or disability.
