Obama to Issue Gay Rights Executive Order
BBC News ^ | June 16, 2014 18:14 GMT | Associated Press

Posted on 06/16/2014 12:16:26 PM PDT by Up Yours Marxists

President Barack Obama will sign an order banning federal government contractors from discriminating against gay and transgender workers, officials have said.

The executive order follows years of pressure from gay rights groups.

Mr Obama cannot extend the protection to all American workers, however.

The order comes after far broader anti-discrimination legislation stalled in the Republican-led House of Representatives.

The executive order will apply only to federal contractors, which employ nearly one-quarter of the US workforce.

They already have all these things in the federal government. This is getting crazy.

Obama must be very happy. Christians getting murdered in Iraq and Kenya, while he opens up the door for mass discrimination here at home. Sick of this choom-smoking commie organizer.

This is how it’s done. Even though contractor contract with OTHER people not related to the government, those who chose to contract with the government MUST change their policy toward every other association unaffiliated with the government.

Does this have any economic sigificance? Unless they mandate equal outcomes in the form of quotas for L, G, B, T, and miscellaneous Q applicants, what difference does this make?

Isn’t it just another example of rallying the coalition of malcontents and misfits in the run-up to the fall election?

I believe there most definitely will be quotas. Before a company can contract with the perv-erment now, they’ll have to list several queers and cross-dressers on their payroll.

Lots of lawsuits which will cost us...the taxpayers.

If the contractors are losing money because of it, they will just ask the Gov't to cover their costs.

“President Barack Obama will sign an order banning federal government contractors from discriminating against gay and transgender workers, officials have said.”

I don’t think he has the power to do that. If he has the power to do that, the next POTUS has the power to ban using any queer government contractors, or one that has any queer employees!

Note how we are now moving from “gay” to “transgender.” Its not just “if two men or two women want to sleep together, its no one elses’ business.” Now its you have to accept “transgender” people — and it won’t be long before “discrimination” includes refusal to pay for their sex change operations and hormones.

First, this is already law. So another Kabuki act by Mullah Obama.

Second, Obama went from being opposed to homosexual marriage in 2008 (before the election) to having “evolved” in his thinking.

His “evolution of thinking” went from biblically opposed to all-out hardened activist. Obama now does almost no foreign or domestic policy without involving homosexuality as a cause.

How does one evolve from opposition to a jihadist activist literally over night? Unless of course Obama was lying through his teeth all along.

Next step in making it illegal with punitive penalties both in public and private life to believe homosexuality is a sin.

Looks like Ø has a loophole... he must be working on another EO to employ the remaining US workforce as federal workers.

My prediction: If you work for a company that does business with the US government, then sometime over the next few weeks or months all of the restrooms at your place of work will be replaced with gender neutral one-holers.

This is so that the companies can't be sued by trannies for denying them their choice as to which restroom to use, and to prevent their female employees from being grossed out by men claiming to be women using the women's restrooms.

The cost of this will come out of any future raises you hoped to get.

Glad he is interrupting his golfing to tend to important things.

Meantime the Benghazi four await justice in another world, which is probably the only place they will get it; the vets await medical care and receiving their vets monthly benefits (because their apps have been on somebody's desk for 2,3 years); widows of vets who died of service connected injuries await their pensions-same reasons-no determination on cases in spite a federal lawsuit and fed judge telling them to get busy; the middle east burns while leader of the free world golfs; the IRS and Erich Holder march on-but not to the border.

As our Ostrich in chief said"the world has never been more peaceful, people better off and more tolerent."-paraphrased.

Unless there are people who are willing to stop him, he has the "power" to do just about anything he wants. He may not have the "authority", but he clearly has the "power."

Elections?

Romney was more pro-gay, he has supported Gay Scout leaders and homosexualizing the military for at least 20 years, he gave America gay marriage, and he campaigned on being better to accomplish the homosexual agenda than Ted Kennedy.

Mitt Romney:
“I am more convinced than ever before that as we seek to establish full equality for Americas gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent.

I am not unaware of my opponent’s considerable record in the area of civil rights, or the commitment of Massachusetts voters to the principle of equality for all Americans. For some voters it might be enough for me to simply match my opponent’s record in this area. But I believe we can and must do better. If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will.

We have discussed a number of important issues such as the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which I have agreed to co-sponsor, and if possible broaden to include housing and credit, and the bill to create a federal panel to find ways to reduce gay and lesbian youth suicide, which I also support. One issue I want to clarify concerns President Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t pursue” military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.

As we begin the final phase of this campaign, I need your support more than ever. By working together, we will achieve the goals we share for Massachusetts and our Nation.”
Sincerely, W. Mitt Romney

We probably do, but most people (even church-going Christians) don’t want to hear their message because it extends into sins well beyond and much more common than sodomy. Our lust, greed, and idolatry is a much greater evil than the butt pirates and carpet munchers.

To me, the larger issue is the fact that Fedzilla employs (directly or indirectly) nearly one-quarter of the US workforce. That’s the real problem.

Plus he just spent Father’s Day weekend at the Palm Springs mansion of two gay decorators who did over the White House.

What’s up with Barry? Is he getting ready to come out? Trying to get ahead of somebody else outing him? Or does he just enjoy the company of LGBT types?

Do Federal workers include the military? Will they all shower together like in Starship Troopers? What if space aliens want to become American? Shouldn’t Obama extend a welcoming hand now with an executive order to pull them out of the shadows? Why did that random US census survey I filled out earlier this year force me to select male or female? Boy, we’ve got a long way to go before we are all categorized and equalized. One of us, one of us, one of us...

Agreed that those are evil and we are guilty of them. I disagree that they are 'greater evils'. The in-your-face-pride behind homosexuality earned it a title of 'abomination' for a reason.

Not that it is a 'greater' sin than any other sin - but it is accompanied by a mindset that goes beyond simple satisfaction of self, it seeks to impose itself by force and loathes and hates those who will not share and accept their perversion.

I have not heard of many Adulterers that seek to force others to accept cheating on a spouse and family as a natural right, so much so that they seek to criminalize those who consider their acts a perversion.

The homosexual agenda is a movement of institutionalizing rape. Genesis 19 already illustrated that fact for us.

Nothing new under the sun.

>> I disagree that they are ‘greater evils’.

Individually, they are greater evils, excepting idolatry of course. But since only 2-5% of the population engages in gay sex and nearly 100% engages in one or more of the others, who contributes more to the moral decline of our nation?

I’m not discounting homosexuality as an abomination, but we each do need to look at our own lives to find a huge amount of greed, lust, idolatry, and yes—even great pride. Just look at how people behave behind the wheel of a car to see one example of our pride on display.

As things stand in federal contract administration, there is a minimum number of small businesses (minority or woman owned 8a) that have to be used.

Fall below that target, usually 10% of your subs or total employee base, and you are not competitive in your bid.

This means, to be effective, this new order will require people to declare they are homo (that they do so already is of no consequence), but moreover, the company has to keep ‘score’ (as it were), just so they can show the feds they are in compliance.

Imagine the homos screaming like little girls before this order takes effect that the company was tracking who was and was not homosexual.
