    About time America was serious about passing its ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) bill, hanging around for years without ever being passed because of a republican blockade. Amazing that the leader of the freest nation of the world doesn’t even have it.

    Yeah. South Carolina? Good luck with THAT one.

    Fingers crossed though.

    Sadly this has as much chance of passing in South Carolina as the anti-gay bill does in Washington. Still it’s progress just for this bill to be introduced and for it to be part of the politician debate down there. I hope I’m wrong and it proceeds without problem but I just can’t see it.

    1. SC – many there still rever the confederacy. Bible belt fanatics.

    Perhaps South Carolina can show North Carolina a thing or two when it comes to LGBT rights.

  5. Isn’t it amazing! For a country where the majority of the people think they are the best thing since sliced bread and are beacons of freedom, equality and democracy, the USA is one of the most backward nations.

    Although most Americans don’t know it, they lag behind on the international scale in democracy, education, healthcare, equality, Human rights, religious freedom… in almost everything America is beaten completely by European countries – and yet the self-congratulatory propaganda within the USA makes all Americans think they live in the most free nation on Earth! lol

      The one thing the Americans are good at though is gun crime. They are better than any other nation on the planet for blowing each others heads off.
      It is bizarre they demand the right to kill each other, but not love one another.

      1. typically by the people whose religion supports life

        Talk about hypocrisy

    2. The USA does however have the first amendment in the constitution unlike many european countries where one cant attack bigoted religions because of their ”sincerly held beliefs”

    3. REPUGNICANS

  6. Anti-LGBT discrimination? Wouldn’t that be discrimination against those with who are homophobic? Surely you mean just LGBT discrimination?

  7. I think it is ridiculous that a country such as the US does not have, on a national level, protections in place for LGBT people. And they have the nerve to call themselves the land of the free!
