It's illegal to refuse to hire someone because of their race, religion or national origin. It's also illegal to fire someone because of their race, religion or ethnicity or physical handicap.

Speaker of the House Boehner and others worry about frivolous lawsuits and that such protection would be too expensive and litigious for businesses if sexual orientation and gender identity were added.

Yet businesses who play by the rules are doing quite well. Nearly 3/4's of the Fortune 500 are companies that already banned such discrimination.

It should be easy to see that here is no reason to believe that adding sexual orientation or gender identity would be anymore disruptive to business than when religion, race or physical handicap were first protected.
