I just wanted to thank everyone that's commented on the ENDA/GLBT issue lately. I know it's passionate. I know people are angry. I know it feels like sometimes we're making no progress. But, in the end, these conversations are exactly what we need to actually create one singular movement instead of several different movements loosely tied together. We don't have to agree all the time, but we do need to have reasonable discussions. We do need to respect differences of opinions, even if we at the same time urge people to change their mind. I feel like, over the past day or two, there's some hope of keeping this big tent well oiled.
So, let's get angry; let's get passionate... and direct that anger and passion to the real enemies. In the meantime, if Barney Frank isn't going to keep an inclusive bill, we have hundreds of other congresspeople to appeal to in order to keep it together, at least in a year where no ENDA will pass anyway. But we can't stop there; Frank says there are enough people in the house that an inclusive ENDA would be subject to manipulation. We need to target the people who would do that, convince them that they're wrong or unseat them if they prove incapable of learning or being decent human beings. That's where our anger and passion is best spent. That's how we work as one movement.
