gays” Robin Hammond 1 of 17 Advertisement "The freedom to marry would open many doors but it does not eliminate discrimination and violence against LGBT people and people living with HIV" said Kevin Cathcart Executive Director of Lambda Legal a gay rights advocacy group "And our well-funded opponents would not stop trying to roll back our advances" For instance this population can in most of America be denied a job a house or an education At the same time serving on jury can be predicated on a potential jurors sexuality in most of the country (Only in the liberal Ninth Circuit have courts found parties cannot exclude jurors based on their sexuality) And religious liberty laws permit people of faith deny goods or services to gays and lesbians Cakes flowers and even pizza can be denied to same-sex couples in the name of religion At the same time banks and other lenders can legally consider a persons sexuality in determining creditworthiness and institutions such as emergency management programs or homeless shelters can deny services to gays and lesbians A report from the liberal Center for American Progress found that one in five homeless youths who were gay couldnt access short-term services or shelters and another 16 percent rejected for long-term help because of their sexuality "Most Americans believe that there are these comprehensive protections in place because its so clearly morally wrong" said Sarah Warbelow legal director at the Human Rights Campaign "They cant reconcile that with the fact that there arent these protections in every community Its why people think organizations like (the Human Rights Campaign) are going to pack it up and call it a day after marriage equality because it doesnt comport with their view of how the world should operate" Its one of the reasons the Human Rights Campaign is now turning its focus on to efforts to add city- and state-based protections as well as gearing up for a fight on a federal non-discrimination law Previous efforts have failed to gain traction and most Republicans oppose the proposals Democratic Sen Jeff Merkley of Oregon has been working on a comprehensive non-discrimination bill and aides say he could introduce it to the full Senate as early as July When he does the 15 million-member Human Rights Campaign plans to advocate for it "Even with a positive ruling were still not totally equal" said Jim Obergefell the plaintiff whose case the Court decided Obergefell has been traveling the country trying to rally support in places like Dallas Atlanta and Columbus Ohio "Everywhere I go people come up and thank me" His allies at the Human Rights Campaign liken him to civil rights leader Rosa Parks or Edie Windsor whose 2013 case to the Supreme Court opened the rapid expansion of same-sex marriage rights "No one would could have predicted this would happen so soon" said Griffin who shares an Arkansas hometown with former President Bill Clinton and former Arkansas Gov Mike Huckabee "You go back 6 7 8 years We were losing every battle in the country The opponents were beating the heck out of us at the ballot box and at state legislatures" Then courts started siding with gay rights activists and public opinion started a rapid shift Vice President Joe Biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage followed by President Obama The pair became the first political ticket to win the White House on a platform that backed same-sex marriage The issue seems to have lost its political valence although the culture warriors are hardly giving up It is certain they will oppose the non-discrimination law when it is introduced later this summer "Thats going to take a very long time Its going to take us years to get there" Griffin concedes But he insists he is not disheartened that yet the victory is incomplete "Its our job to roll out our sleeves and get to work harder than weve even worked before and say Now what to that question that Harvey would have asked" Griffin said "We cant slow down We cant kick back and we cant step back And we cant be patient" Silent No More: Early Days in the Fight for Gay Rights Caption from LIFE In
