Is this how coexistence and tolerance work?
President Obama signed an executive order Monday barring federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity — ignoring the pleas of Christian and other faith leaders to include an exemption for religious organizations.
“Thanks to your passion and advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of your cause, our government –- the government of the people, by the people and for the people -– will become just a little bit fairer,” the president told a gathering in the White House.
The executive order would prevent Christian and other religious organizations with federal contracts from requiring workers to adhere to the tenets of their religious beliefs.
The author of the article (who also wrote God Less America) also includes this short paragraph later in the story:
That explains why a Christian baker in Colorado was ordered by a state commission to undergo re-education training after he declined to participate in a gay wedding celebration.
Re-education training? 😯 Is that really the terminology used by a state commission in Colorado?
Whatever the case, “Honour the king,” says the Bible.
