Supreme Court watchers are already predicting that the Greens and their religious and political allies on the right will win. I'm not so sure. I still have hope that once again Justice Roberts will show his courage and support the rights and protections of all Americans.
The plight of Brendan Eich, the Mozilla CEO who resigned following an uproar over his donation to support California's Proposition 8, is big news. Yet it's still legal in most states to fire an employee for being part of the LGBT community.
Sure, LGBT groups are operating within a political environment in which a small band of extremists have a lock on the GOP. But better to get nothing passed right now and continue to embarrass the GOP and watch it implode than to compromise our rights and pander to those extremists.
We're not supposed to be angry; we're supposed to be encouraged. We're not supposed to be vehemently upset; we're supposed to be motivated. We're not supposed to be condemning; we're supposed to be encouraging. Well, say it with me: Poppycock!
There is no question that this administration has an unparalleled record of accomplishments for LGBT Americans. When President Obama finally signs this executive order, it will unquestionably be remembered as one of his signature civil rights accomplishments.
