Obama to sign order Monday barring federal discrimination against gays
Reuters ^ | July 18, 2014 | by Jeff Mason

President Barack Obama will sign an executive order on Monday barring federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, senior administration officials said.

The order will allow some exemptions for religious groups that are federal contractors but not as much flexibility as the groups had wanted.

A religious organization would be barred from making hiring decisions based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Exceptions would be allowed for ministers, and groups would be allowed to favor individuals of a particular religion when hiring.

The White House believes the order will help improve productivity by reducing fears among employees that they could be fired for being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.

"This is another case where doing what is right also helps businesses improve their bottom line," one official told reporters on a conference call.

Is anyone else tired of the president (this one and many others) of ORDERING anyone to do anything?

Under what authority can the president ORDER anyone (besides the military) to do anything?

Obama isn't the only one to do that, but in my opinion this stuff needs to stop! congress needs to bar ALL presidents (not just this one) from ORDERING federal contractors to do anything! THAT IS NOT HIS JOB !!!

So, I suppose it would behoove one to at least say they are gay so they aren’t pronounced anti-gay or homophobic(isn’t a phobia a fear of something? I ain’t scared) or something. Then of course they’d have lied on their documents so............. I don’t know. It’s just all so confusing. But that 3% or less deserve special treatment obviously. Guess they can’t “make it” on their own merit?

So I suppose there will be a mandatory self outing for all gays then ,, management will insist on it (and rightly so) so that they can make sure their rights aren’t infringed upon.

If he really wanted to help, he could issue an order banning anal intercourse.

That would stop AIDs in it’s tracks...

I wonder if we could talk the Kenyan into signing the same kind of order for Whitey and Christians. I’d like to see one just to get Holder’s DOJ off of our asses. That crap is getting old.

Yeah, last I checked the Clown doesn’t get to write law.

So “order” all you want, it isn’t law. Period. Full stop. End of story.

Executive Orders though are fairly common.
They have to be a consequence of an actual law though.
Unfortunately many of our laws are fairly vague.

Barry usually has his head so far up his butt the lump in his throat is his nose but when it comes to pushing the queer agenda or helping Muzzies he's "Johnny on the Spot" and uses every tick in the book.

Is this POTUS allowed to sign EOs to prevent discrimination against himself, Reggie and probably 2/3 of the Administration?

I saw that study too. It needs to be repeated often.

I saw a Catholic Priest on late night tv a couple of months back who stated that 10% of the population was "gay" and therefore, it stands to reason that 10% of Priests are "gay" also. No one challenged his ridiculous assertions.

By the way, the moment I saw him, my queerdar started pinging.

A good investigative reporter/journalist should be able to grease a few palms in Chicago to get the real story about Obama and Man’s Country in that town. ........Supposedly, many people, including Rahm E. and other well-knowns were members their with Obama.

Who will protect the conservative tea party member from the IRS?

When will the man with the incredible shrinking ear size sign that executive order?

Is he “Orocchino”, a man whose ears get smaller each time he tells a lie?
