Something interesting may happen at the White House's annual Easter Egg roll. Jarrod Scarbrough easter-eggs-2.jpgand Les Sewell plan on confronting President Obama about employment discrimination.

According to The Advocate, the gay couple wants to press the President into signing an executive order banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

While I applaud the gay couple for taking a stand; I'm not so sure the Easter Egg roll is the best place to do this. What is their plan? How will they have a solid conversation during a high profile event? Was it wise to go public about this confrontation?

I'm afraid this will come off like a bad publicity stunt that will undermine the overall message. However, I'm curious to hear what y'all think about this.
