    place where no matter who you are, or what you look like, or where you come
    from, or how you started out, or what your last name is, or who you love—no
    matter what, you can make it.” —President Obama on signing an Executive

  2. It is outrageous and maddening that a law like this is needed to protect
    the LGBTQ community from the christians. Well done Mr President, very well
    done.

  3. I’m actually proud of this. As a non gay American I’m happy that my gay
    coworkers will no longer have to worry about sharing their personalizes
    with other coworkers during break. Good job Obama!

  4. Bravo Obama, this is making real progress. It’s sick and wrong that this
    needs to be a law but there will always be ignorant and intolerant people
    but as long as our leaders are decent human beings I have hope for our
    future. As far as the homophobes go you can take a big fat dick right in
    the ass, who knows you might like it ;)

  5. this coon deserves death, he ignores the black community and all the racism
    they face, but he goes 100% in on faggots, death to Obama and death to
    faggots,

  6. B. Hussein O’bomba does not really love this country, He just loves this
    country AFTER all his illegal Executive Orders are Mandated.
    Congress doesn’t need to pass the laws anymore. B. Hussein is in town.
    Sieg Heil.

  10. Bravo! There is no room in America for discrimination anymore. We should
    banish it to the 20th century where it belongs.

    Shame on Congressional Republicans for blocking the outlawing of
    discrimination in the private sector. 

  11. Amen. Uncivilized anti-American discrimination was not ok in the 19th
    century when businesses displayed signs that read “No Irish need apply” &
    “Italians need not apply”. It wasn’t ok in the 29th century when businesses
    displayed “No colored allowed” & “Jews are not wanted here”. “No gays
    allowed” will not be tolerated in the 21st century.

    Heterosexual employees do not get fired for displaying a picture of their
    family or the person they are dating on their desk or in their locker. So
    LGBT employees shouldn’t either. Hetero employees do not get fired for
    discussing with their co-wokers in the break-room or around the water
    cooler the non-sexual aspects of their date the night before. LGBT
    employees shouldn’t either.

    If I (as am African-American, Irish, Dutch, Canadian-Frenh openly gay
    business owner) cannot refuse employment to anti-gay dross because
    discrimination against religious beliefs is illegal, anti-gays cannot
    refuse employment to LGBT human beings. Jim Crow style laws are NOT
    American values, they are the values of barbarians.

    In 1960 Rodney Powell (Freedom Rider, sit-in leader, student of MLK, black
    & gay) led a sit-in at a Walgreens in Tennessee because they wouldn’t let
    him sit at the counter for being black. LGBT today will not be denied the
    right to sit at that same counter Rodney would be stopped from sitting at
    because he is also gay. Amen Mr. President. 

  12. Well done! That is another fine task accomplished; by the people of The
    United States Of America under God. Thanks America, Amen.
