"Nothing has changed at Log Cabin Republicans regarding our calculus. We continue to support ENDA as it is now, as we always have.

"A lot of these organizations on the left withdrawing their support are ignorant of the political reality in Washington that led to bi-partisan support of ENDA in the Senate in the first place. It's puzzling, really -- it's like we scored the touchdown with the Senate passage of ENDA, and right as we're about to kick the field goal in the House the left decides to move the goal posts. Histrionics about the Hobby Lobby decision didn't help, and a misinformation campaign about the religious exemption in ENDA hasn't either."

-- Gregory T. Angelo, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, talking to DC's Metro Weekly about the exodus of LGBT groups supporting ENDA in its current incarnation. Republicans have been the ones pushing for the dangerous religious exemptions that after the Hobby Lobby ruling would allow any business to claim their religion allows them to discriminate.
