OBAMA TO FORCE FAITH-BASED FEDERAL GRANT RECIPIENTS TO HIRE LGBTS

The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a reportpublished today by the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam).
By executive order last summer, President Obama amended the Johnson-era federal order on non-discrimination in hiring by federal contractors to include non-discrimination based on “sexual orientation and gender identity.” That order has roiled faith-based groups.
A confidential source tells C-Fam that the White House has directed federal agencies to include “sexual orientation and gender identity” as protected classes in all grant agreements.
