MLB Passes Sexual-Orientation Discrimination Ban

Watching right-wing news, I learn things that I would have overlooked. This item was in Citizenlink, a Focus on the "Family" hate group. Apparently, sexual orientation is now included in Major League Baseball's non-discrimination policy.

Update: This is confirmed in the bargaining agreement summary (PDF).

By me, this is a welcome advance. For the fundies? Not so much. FRC's lead bigot, Peter Sprigg, is quoted saying:
This is not a neutral act. It’s taking sides in the culture war.

The article continues:
The National Football League added sexual orientation to its policy earlier this year, following the National Hockey League in 2005 and Major League Soccer in 2004. Gay activist groups are now pushing for the National Basketball Association to do the same.

With any luck at all, this ruined some Thanksgiving cheer.
