The Obama administration is preparing to force every charitable organization receiving federal grants to end prohibitions on hiring people based on sexual orientation or gender identity. In its latest “Friday Fax,” the Center for Family and Human Rights, or C-Fam, cites an unnamed but well-placed administration source, who says the administration is definitely headed in that direction. “Our source told us that the administration is moving very quietly to insert sexual orientation and gender identity language into the application process for grantees. They cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and there is no exemption for religious believers,” said C-Fam President Austin Ruse.
“Quietly” appears to be the key word in this process. Ruse said this revelation comes as news to just about everyone. “This caught a lot of faith-based groups off guard. When we started calling around to get comments yesterday, two very big groups had heard nothing about this,” said Ruse, who would not divulge which groups he contacted. “Grantees get grants for carrying out certain tasks that they were doing already,” Ruse said. “A lot of them are faith-based groups. A lot of them are faith-based groups doing work overseas.” FULL REPORT
