Equal rights are not "special rights". Denying the rights of someone for being LGBT is no different than denying the rights of someone who is jewish or black. It's genetic, not a choice.

What's that? You buy the bull of the buybull and repeat the lie about "lifestyle, not genetic"? Well, belonging to a certain political party or religious cult is also a choice. Denying the rights of someone who is LGBT is no different than denying the rights of someone who belongs to a different political party or a different cult.

Discriminatory special protections for chosen sexual behavior are ludicrous.

Maybe this law will allow gay Nebraskans to steal beer from their neighbor's cooler and get plumbing work done without paying for it. Of course certain gay Nebraskans are already doing this regardless of the law.

1. Hey "wade", who is really david moore from Pekin IL, can it. Quit the ridiculous spam. We all know that it's YOU.

2. Almost three years ago, my wife and I were on Amtrak near Benkelman NB, when a demolition crew taking down an old grain elevator parked their crane too close to the tracks. The engineer tried frantically to stop, but we collided with the crane boom, snapping it right off. Benkelman didn't care that we were a gay married couple, their local hospital(Dundy County Hospital) took GREAT care of us, let us stay together through the whole thing, and connected us with the rest of the passengers at the local high school.

In short, davy, or wade or justin or whatever name you CHOOSE when you log on, shut your pie hole. Get a life, get educated, quit spamming the board, and grow UP. Get help for your bigotry. I'm sure that Pekin IL has mental health facilities. Please avail yourself of the county mental health department.

Protections for unchosen sex orientation are necessary because of people like you who can't mind their own business

You do relize that everyone has a sexual orentation dont you, you have one, I have one everyone has one, without sexual orentation protections I can fire someone for being straght. What is ludicrous is having protections for something that one chooses like religion or politics, but not for something that one is born with (sexual orentation)
