Obama requires LGBT equality from religious aid contractors



The Washington Times: “The Obama administration announced a rule last week that threatens to strip federal contracts from religious relief organizations and charities that adhere to traditional views of gender and sexuality, continuing a trend of governmental hostility toward religion.

National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the rule prohibits organizations that contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in the administration of aid.”

Opinion: The Obama gender cops are at it again, finding solutions for men who decide to feel like women. It used to be called mental illness and it places women at great risk.

Roger Severino, director of the Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society, said the rule will create more problems than it solves.

“For example, disaster relief agencies may now be required to open their women’s shower and sleeping facilities to biological males who self-identify as women or be stripped of all funding for alleged ‘gender identity discrimination.”

So it has nothing whatsoever to do with fair employment, just another stick to beat religious institutions into submission. Now what to do about Muslims who want to get some of those federal contracts?
