"I believe that if we're to be a majority party, that we have to be a growing party, rather than a narrowing party," said former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.).

concerns that the bill ... is too expansive and doesn't do enough to protect religious institutions.

Religious institutions have a whole Constitutional Amendment protecting them. What more do they need?

Good question. But the answer is always the same.

Why does God need bigotry and discrimination to protect His house?

They need to be sure they can still hate and judge without fear of retribution. Or maybe the amendment your talking about does that already.

Jesus? The Christian ones seem to be lacking quite a bit of him and his teachings. At least the Christian ones need him

To force everybody to adhere to the beliefs and practices of their own religious institution. Duh.

Asked if opposing the bill would hurt the party's ability to reach out to younger voters, McCain said: "I think the young people and old do not believe in reverse discrimination, they don't believe in quotas, and they don't believe that some of the programs that we saw in the name of racial equality implemented in the past which turned out to be counterproductive."

Johnny, maybe I'm missing something here, and maybe you can help me out.  How does making it "illegal to fire, refuse to hire or refuse to promote employees based on their sexual orientation or gender identity" or their skin color constitute reverse discrimination?  Reverse discrimination would be something along the lines of saying "you can't hire this white, straight guy because we're forcing you to give that job to the gay, black dude."  Which is not what this law is saying - it just says you can't use the black guys melanin content or appreciation of penii as reasons to not hire him.

In fact, the only way I can think of that this law discriminates against someone is by telling bigots that acting on that bigotry now carries civil penalties.  And you know what?  I'm perfectly farking OK with that.

They need the US Government to make it a crime to call them stupid bigots, apparently.

and in reverse, it also protects straight, white, old men for being fired for not being black or gay enough

They are balancing growing public acceptance of gay rights against concerns that the bill - which includes provisions addressing gender identity - is too expansive and doesn't do enough to protect religious institutions.

If your shiatty religion requires the ability to take away rights from other people as part of its worship, your religion has no place in society.  Your right to swing your fists ends at your neighbor's nose, regardless of whether you approve of who your neighbor sleeps with.

All chaps are by definition assless. That's what makes them chaps.

Coleman added, "Some of us aren't there on marriage equity, but there's no reason we shouldn't be there on nondiscrimination. We're the party of Lincoln. It's our roots."

How is marriage equality NOT discrimination?

FTFA:  But when it comes to the ENDA bill heading to the Senate floor as soon as next week, those GOP senators aren't so sure. They are balancing growing public acceptance of gay rights against concerns that the bill - which includes provisions addressing gender identity - is too expansive and doesn't do enough to protect religious institutions.

Um.  That's what the First Amendment is for.

Orwellian control of language.  Denying marriage equality doesn't count as discrimination until they say it counts.  Typically that means enough time has to pass that they feel they can get away with blaming the whole thing on Democrats and pretending equality was a GOP idea the whole time.

Assless chaps differ from regular chaps because you don't wear pants underneath them.

It's just a way of distinguishing between an equestrian and a bottom bear.

Well, from the article it sounds like they should be able to get the votes they need to pass it. 55 Democrats, 2 republicans who say they will and 2 more who seem likely to, and then Rob Portman should support this since he actually supports marriage equality.

Sounds good to me.

Greetings, Farkers. I am the Richard C Stanford from the year 2025, after the ghay marriage has destroyed society. It was worse then we imagined. The homo agenda had placed double gaygents in the Republican Party to say stupid crap and get caught in vice stings, discrediting the family values people. Then ghay marriage was legalized! And we were forced to ghay marry turtles! And high school ghay-streight alliances were secretly military plots! Us remaining straights live in the sewers, hiding from the ghay death convoys! I've been sent back through time and space to stop the ghay! But I'm being followed by the ghays super powered robot, the Termaghaytor!

They were the party of Lincoln now they are a party digging up issues to divert the voters attention while they work to implement trickle-down economics to benefit less than a tenth of the population. Got to have some good gay and immigrant hating so the poor white folks don't figure out they are getting banged in the wallet.

NOOO, Republicans! Don't be tempted! You've given up too much to the homuhsuxual armies already. You must resist this new appeasement. Circle the wagons! Burn more food stamps!

Goddamn I am tired of "religious institutions" which don't pay taxes and at least some of which are beholden to foreign entities being part of the discussion.

You can still be in fruity little church if gay people have equal rights.

Thank you for your sacrifice.  But I'm afraid there is an austrian leather daddy behind you.  You may want to run.  But not that way.  That way there is a shape changing stripper cop.

Peter von Nostrand: Regular chaps or assless chaps?


I've been pondering about that too.  I think there are too many assless chaps these days, and I'm sure it's the primary reason that many male friends I know are having problems finding pants that fit.  This silly trend with "skinny jeans" only serves those who have nothing to sit on, and the rest of ample America is left to ask just who speaks for the regular chaps??  Assless indeed!  I must be too old, because I see these kids running around with their sagging jeans and wonder what keeps them from falling into the toilet when they sit down.

Yes, your honor, it's true. This chap hss no ass.
