Obama Admin To Require Faith Based Grant Recipients To Hire LGBTs

Everyone else can be a protected class but those who practice religion (well, not hardcore Islam, of course. Leftists always seem to exempt them)

(Breitbart) The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a report published 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.

This goes directly back to what Erik Erickson wrote, “you will be made to care“. While that is about gay marriage, the point still applies. Those of faith will be forced to care. They are being forced to be involved in gay marriage, despite their beliefs. Faith based organizations are being forced to offer contraceptives, abortifacients, and abortion services directly through their insurance or through slight of hand. All for a tiny, tiny portion of the population.

The Johnson-era order was amended in 2002 by President George Bush to include a religious exemption so that faith-based groups would not be forced to hire those in opposition to their teachings. It is unclear whether grant recipients have similar protections. And even those protections are under assault by those who want all such exemptions ended.

Team Obama will surely make sure there are no exemptions, and we can certainly bet the farm that LGBT activists will inundate faith based grant recipients with applications, and, if they aren’t hired, they will sue, surely with the help of the Obama Department of (Social-Political) Justice.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    Christianity has always stood in the way of drugs, Gays, Lesbians and the social progressive reworking of America.

    Religion is an enemy of communism.

    The times they are a changin’.

    Organizations sucking at the federal teat should be required to abide by federal rules, right?

    No one is forcing them to apply for federal subsidies.

    Society is shifting. We’re transitioning to a nation where discrimination against gays is not tolerated.

  3. Dana says:

    If faith-based agencies are now unable to discriminate against homosexuals, then it opens the door to discrimination lawsuits by homosexual employees because such organizations have created a hostile work environment, making the poor dears feel uncomfortable working for an organization which holds that homosexual activity is sinful.

    But, in one way, Jeffrey is correct: it isn’t that faith-based organizations should have to follow federal rules to receive federal grants, but that no private organizations should receive federal grants.

    When it came to Islamic cab drivers not wanting booze or dogs in their cabs the radical right gave nary a peep about “religious rights”
    Now those same uber rightists want to be able to discriminate in hiring of people that will be paid with Federal dollars, MY TAX MONEY
    Would those same righwingnutz also say it would be OK if I declined to pay taxes used for war?
    Sorry this is a country where we have rule by law, not byindividua; religious beliefs.
    The Bible says adulterers must be stoned to death, our laws here say, sorry you just can’t do what your Lord commands.

    Its simple really. Politics has always been about the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    This applies to Mosques also.

    The fun will begin when an LGBT individual applies for a job at one of those facilities.

    The Obama administration has tried this before by saying that religious groups cannot demand that hires adhere to their religious teachings.

    Courts, including the Supreme Court, have found that to be an overstep of the federal government and the First Amendment.

    Hopefully the same thing will happen in this case, but once again we will see the government spending millions of dollars to try and deprive people and groups their rights under the Constitution.

    Do Mosques win a lot of federal grants?
