President Obama signed an executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers, with no exemption for those with religious affiliation. The act will leave in place exemptions that religious contractors currently have. Religious leaders had urged him to follow the example of the Senate bill and adopt a broad exemption for federal contractors, exempting religiously affiliated groups from the rules altogether.
