lifestyle protections


So the Catholic Church was "fiercely lobbying" up to the last minute to defeat the modest, and decades-overdue, extension of the New York State Nondiscrimination Act (to include homosexuals and bisexuals).

It managed to pass yesterday, although minus any protection for the transgendered, and it was signed into law by the governor.

Yesterday's short Daily News article doesn't mention the notorious word, "lifestyle," but it's permanently etched in the minds of religious and conservative bigots, and in fact it's the basis for their rejection of a good portion of humanity. Next time I or anyone else gets a chance to do some serious lobbying against state protection and encouragement of religion, something which actually is a lifestyle, I want to see the kind of consideration and protection that the Church always enjoys.
