There’s good news for Americans who care about freedom from discrimination in the workplace. In the U.S. Senate, Al Franken has introduced S. 1088, a bill that would prohibit discrimination in public schools based on the sexual orientation, or perceived sexual orientation, of students.
But then, only 33 Senate Democrats actually have signed their names to support the bill. That’s not something to be proud of.
The Senate Democrats who seem not to give a damn about discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans are:
These Democrats are the congressional equivalent of the kids in high school who would look the other way while the gay kids got beat up. They’re cowards.
By the way, independent senator Angus King is refusing to support this legislation as well. How are you feeling about that, Maine voters?
