MSNBC's Thomas Roberts: "ENDA is BS detector for homophobia"


he just said it live while being interviewed on The Cycle



live i've said before, many times. i am for gay rights. i fricking detest how they go about their little war, to the point where i cannot support them. the ends do not justify the means, especially when it means less liberty and creating false premises to attack rationality

Word.

Add that in with frivolous lawsuits against businesses who don't want to serve gay people under their rights of private property gives me pause from time to time about the gay rights movement.

i believe in politicians doing their job and creating a voting record on legislation

i cannot support a politician being a coward and supporting cowardice. boehner is doing that

plus it's stupid politically, but that's to be expected from the GOP

You're absolutely right. While we're at it, lets remove race and sex from the protections too. That way everyone in the South can avoid having to hire, promote, give raises to blacks and women.

Employment (?) Non-Discrimination Act, I believe

basically adds sexual orientation as another prohibited reason to fire someone

Ya, that's exactly what would happen all across the south.

ETA: As if the "South" has a monopoly on racism.

certain companies may, and they'll fail (both in terms of the market and due to limiting their pool of employees)

Great. Let's do it

So it's your opinion that the only way minorities and women succeed in the South is because fedgov protects them?

Interesting bigotry there

Which of course has nothing to do with the ENDA.

However, if there is a state law which prohibits businesses from refusing to serve gay people, and the party aggrieved files suit, then, by definition, that is not a "frivolous lawsuit".

This is so short-sighted and why we can' have honest discussions about real problems.

Par for the course I guess...

No, you see, it's because the south is sooooo racist, that minorities can't succeed without the govt. Totally different
