WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– President Obama is ready to sign an executive order that bans discrimination by federal contractors on the basis sexual orientation, top democrats said.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Mr. Obama’s move “marks another significant step in our nation’s progress on civil rights.”

"This executive order adds to the list of the [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] community's accomplishments during the Obama administration and is cause for celebration as we recognize June as LGBT Pride Month,” she said."

Mr. Obama has directed his staff to draft the executive order that would ban workplace discrimination, a White House official told The Huffington Post. It wasn’t clear whether the president intends to sign the order Monday or to put pressure on Congress to pass such a law.

LGBT activists responded with enthusiasm at the news. — Source

    President Obama turns to the 'god' of "FREEDOM" of self-rights to support the rights of homosexuals and transgender people.
    Why does he not say that we are to do good to others, and to enemies, as per the Will of the One and Only Creator, to Whom the Lord Jesus Christ is the Only way?
    …perhaps if he said this then he would be confessing that there is Only One Creator, and that His Son is the Only Way…and in so doing he would betray his desire & belief that it is RIGHT , a right, to be free to worship any 'god', to serve and magnify the self (XES).

    Soon, very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ will return to rule the earth in power according to and in obedience to the Will of the One Creator, to love Him and to love the fellowman, and NOT according to man's first love for "his freedom" to do what is right in his own eyes, to know good and evil as per his own self-justified desires.

    1 Timothy 6:17
    Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

    Everything and virtually anything, will now be called discrimination by the LGBT. They are terrorists, spewing their own brand of intolerance. I don't hate them, Christ died for them too, and forgiveness is freely given if they will repent, but I detest what they're forcing on our children and nation. The president is for all things perverse.
