House passes sweeping LGBTQ nondiscrimination bill in historic vote
The Equality Act would modify existing civil rights legislation to add protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
By Brooke Sopelsa and Associated Press

"The House on Friday passed a sweeping LGBTQ nondiscrimination bill that would modify existing civil rights legislation to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, public accommodations, jury service, education, federal programs and credit."
“The LGBTQ community has waited nearly 250 years for full equality in our country,” said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., the legislation’s chief sponsor and one of eight openly LGBTQ members in the House. “Today, we’re one step closer to that goal.”
"The Equality Act, which was reintroduced in March by congressional Democrats, passed by a 236-173 vote, with eight Republicans voting for it. The measure has been a priority for Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who said it would help bring the country closer to “full equality.”

It's just simply the right thing to do. I mean good grief, do we even have to think about it.

Good so now the homosexuals have no reason to bitch anymore since they are now truly equal.

Thank God we can finally get them to shut up.
