President Obama requires LGBT equality from religious aid contractors

by Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times  |  published on October 31, 2016

Religious ReliefThe 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.

“The United States also needs to do more to institutionalize efforts to promote LGBT rights,” Ms. Rice said in a speech at American University last week on the state of gay rights around the world.

“As part of that commitment, I’m pleased to note that just yesterday a new rule went into effect that explicitly prohibits discrimination by USAID contractors. This rule means that any organization that contracts with USAID must ensure that all people can benefit from its federally funded programs, regardless of race, religion, disability — or sexual orientation and gender identity,” she said.

“It’s a major step toward ensuring that American assistance is provided in a fair and equitable manner,” she said.

    Our church has participated in federal food distribution programs in the past. We didn’t ask if a person was gay or straight. Most organizations which distribute aid will be happy to do so regardless of the recipient’s lifestyle choices. We would have had a problem with the requirement that we bring people on board to work in our efforts that didn’t share our religious values.

    This is a great reason why we need to make a change on election day. This president has no concept of what the Bible says about right and wrong, or he chooses to embrace evil. The same can be said for Hillary rotten Clinton. She is a consistently evil person.

      It is ridiculous that churches can feed and clothe poor or homeless people BUT MAY NOT PRAY for or with them.

      IF they are so offended by prayer – they should go ask to eat/sleep/whatever at the local democrat offices. Most would then be trespassed and get a free cell with 3 square meals, internet access, tv, gym, free medical possible even including sex change…

      The Feds better separate church and state issues.
      Let the church deal with morality
      and the state can continue to crap on everything and mess it up.

          YOU are part of click bait scammers preying on those that desperately seek work at home or additional income. I’ll bet they reduced repeatedly the fee and then gave you a *free* website so you could earn income by continuing their game…just minutes a day… if even 1% of 100.000 viewers click you will eventually make $100 per day… I’d be embarrassed to post everywhere in an attempt to defraud people in need of legitimate work. GO AWAY!
