Religious Liberty Threatened by Obama’s LGBT Executive Order

Despite the “Employee Non-Discriminative Act” being before Congress, President Obama signed an executive order this Monday prohibiting organizations with federal contracts from  discriminating against persons of the LGBT community.  Whereas the bill before Congress includes an exemption for religious organizations, Obama’s LGBT executive order does not.

Given the recent ruling by the Supreme Court in favor of the Hobby Lobby, this order is likely to cause long and protracted legal issues for the months and years to come.
