Beyond Marriage: 3 More Battles for LGBT Rights
Gay rights activists react outside the Supreme Court just after the rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8. With the fight over marriage largely headed back to the states, a handful of other top LGBT rights issues now face Washington - and statehouses nationwide.

It seems like nowadays if anyone needs ENDA, it is trans people. We seem to see a lot of articles about them being fired.

Look at my post below that article in reply to a woman named Debbie Russell:
Debbie Russell says:
"Well, I am disappointed to see all the news stations reporting on this, not news worthy. Do you guys believe in God? If you do, then why support this kind of story, so, I guess you don't. Do you even know that is it wrong? What ever happened to the controversy about hiring a gay cub scout leader, heck, hire them all now. This opens a whole new door, you will not be able to discriminate against a gay man who wants to be in the scouts. Is not that what you protested about just a few short months ago? Now, we will have them all. Still would not want any of them around my kids. This world is going to hell. Stop supporting the stories. That is my opinion, and wait and see how many molesters come out now to, open door."
I replied to her saying:
"So the right to discriminate and discriminating is part of being a good Christian huh? So is that what Jesus would do? Fire someone and cause them to lose their livelihood: home, vehicle, child(ren), food, retirement, healthcare, etc. all because they are gay or trans or perceived as such? You sound vindictive as if you want to punish people for being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender by firing them, not hiring them, denying them a raise or promotion, denying them service in a restaurant or business, banning them from stores, denying them medical attention, healthcare, not renting to them, etc. How are you any different from those who were part of the KKK, Nazis, and those in favor of slavery, segregation, bans on interracial marriages, racial/gender discrimination, and oppression of blacks and women and religious minorities? Oh! And the holy bible was used to condone MOST if not ALL of those forms of discrimination/oppression and is now being used against sexual minorities such as the LGBT and intersex community. Don't you dare compare the love of two consenting adults of the same gender to the rape and sexual abuse of a child (which can never consent to sex with an adult)! You are the true definition of a bigot and you give Christianity a bad name. You are the type of "Christian" that is causing younger generations to steer clear of all churches, religions, and Christianity. How is denying service to gays in a restaurant ANY DIFFERENT from refusing to service to blacks? It's not different, just a different minority. The majority of Americans do not believe that gays should be denied housing, employment, and public accommodations or the right to serve openly in the military simply because they are gay. You are in the minority on that. You would actually want to banish a questioning or gay youth from the Boy Scouts when kids already have enough on their plate to deal with? Shame on you!"
