ENDA has a problem: a disturbing religious exemption that has been included in the bill in one form or another ever since it was introduced in 1994. A Catholic school teacher who’s done a great job for years could still be fired under ENDA if the principal discovers that she is a lesbian. That’s abhorrent.

Hawaii Rep. Chris Lee is believed likely to vote for the state’s marriage equality bill, which is heading to the House after passing easily in the Senate. He’s received a great deal of praise from constituents — and a written death threat delivered to his home.
The note had reportedly been placed under a slipper outside the door of his Kailua home, but Lee doesn’t seem fazed.
“Clearly, when things like this happen,” he told Hawaii News Now, “it generally means you’re doing something right. Over the history of difficult issues there’s always going to be people on the fringes who are upset that they’re not getting their way or that people are speaking out against their position, and such is life.”
