https://www.yahoo.com/news/house-se...ll-expand-gay-rights-041653126--politics.html The House has approved a bill to expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation and gender id. It was approved 237 to 173. All Democrats voted for it as well as 8 Republicans. Right now it is legal under Federal law to discriminate in housing, education, employment, and public accommodations based on sexual orientation or gender ID, but illegal to do so for reasons of race, gender, nationality, religion, ethnicity, physical handicap. Let's pray that the Senate will see the light and expand Equal Opportunity and stop irrational and illogical discrimination! The Republicans are always opposing Affirmative Action saying they fully support equal opportunity but NOT "special help or hand outs". Well, time to see if they REALLY believe that.
