"We are now faced with definitive Congressional action to move forward a version of the bill stripping gender identity. Though we support a fully inclusive ENDA, we acknowledge the legislative strategy put forth by Congressman Frank and the Democratic leadership to obtain a clear path towards an inclusive bill in the future. We look forward to working with them to accomplish the goal all of us share – ending workplace discrimination against the entire GLBT community. Since 2004, HRC has had in place a policy that supports only a fully inclusive version of ENDA and the Board of Directors voted to reaffirm that position. Therefore, we are not able to support, nor will we encourage Members of Congress to vote against, the newly introduced sexual orientation only bill. And we'll continue working with our allies in Congress to support a comprehensive, legislative strategy to achieve passage of a fully inclusive ENDA as quickly as possible.”
-- HRC President Joe Solmonese on the organization's strategy on ENDA

...nor will we encourage Members of Congress to vote against, the newly introduced sexual orientation only bill.

Again MLKjr's quote rings true.

"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

Good quote, Veronica. I'll use that as tomorrow's Homotextual.
