Tired of the culture war? Before the holidays, U.S. Representative Chris Stewart of Utah introduced the Fairness for All Act, a good-faith effort to establish a truce.
Stewart's bill would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and gender identity — up to a point. Unlike the Equality Act, a measure that the House of Representatives passed in May, Fairness for All does not provide the above with "protected class status," equivalent to race, color and national origin. Instead, it allows discrimination by those with religious objections — again, up to a point.
