    Even if the law changes, it won't make that much difference, unless the employer is really stupid.  
    As we've seen, such as in the recent case where a Washington State florist refused to provide flowers for a gay couple's wedding and where a B&B owner in Hawai'i  refused to provide accommodations for a lesbian couple, there are enough stupid employers, landlords, business owners and what-have-you around that cases can and will be won.

    There is no way to guarantee that NO discrimination based on sexual orientation will EVER AGAIN take place if this law passes any more than racial discrimination died as soon as the civil rights laws of the 1960's were passed. That doesn't mean we should shrug our shoulders and do nothing.
