Link Farming: What Does "The They" Think About The ENDA Vote?

As promised, here’s a “link farm” of thoughts on ENDA, broken up into a section of LGBT organization comments, a section of religious right organization comments, a section of editorials and commentaries comments, and a section of congressmember/politician comments. By no means is this comprehensive article list, but it’s meant to give a pretty wide cross-section of viewpoints on the recent passage of ENDA.

[Btw, there is a video up of the Congressional ENDA passage press conference here.]
