Is this just for the LGBT or are heterosexuals included? Or is this just another liberal attack upon people who disagree with them?

There's already a law in place for sexual discrimination. What are they complaining about?
How about banning Workplace Bullying!
Discrimination and bullying often go hand in hand.

It's just for LBGT--it is fine and dandy to discriminate against heterosexuals and even traditional families. Liberals will not be happy until they have obliterated gender identification differences and made illegal the use of any gender-based names like mother and father or husband and wife. France has made a law to prevent any legal document (like birth certificates) from listing a mother and father--they are to be listed as parent one and parent two.

All you need to do is show up for work to earn money and provide a service to others. That is the only reason why you are there and there is no need to sensationalize or draw any special attention to yourself.

Really if we all focused more on creating jobs and qualified candidates, I can assure you no good business cares who you have sex with if you are profitable

But there lies the perpetual wrong in America. The corporate profiteers and big govt that have already corrupted this country morally, physically, spiritually, and financially.
There will be no recovery until the fed is done away with along with the generous tax code and those placing children into ss homes to be arrested. Send the zionists to Israel. Or Ashkezar, whichever they prefer.
The only job you should have is at home. We stole this land from the color red and turned it upside down and inside out. All wrong.

Well? So much for the born gay theory eh?
This govt, along with zionists, have been promoting many that do not represent sound moral principles, so it should surprise noone when the moral decay of a society continues to deteriorate.
Subversion and decadence.
The principles of morality.
Leads to endless wars.
No complaints from the left about Africa or Libya.
We are the devil!

Not sure if this is bad satire or you're as clueless as the rest.

The bill makes no distinction between hetero- and homo-, just that the state cannot discriminate on gender identity or sexual orientation, perceived or actual:

Also, in these cases, federal law supersedes.
