Thanks, Obama!


So today President Obama signed an executive order saying that federal contractors can’t discriminate against LGBT people. This is an excellent thing. It’s made even more excellent that he did it over the objections of religious types who, citing the recent Supreme Court ruling about Hobby Lobby, opined that they should be allowed to discriminate. That’s a bullshit argument. If you want to take federal money, you have to play by federal rules. If you don’t want to play by those rules, don’t take the money. Simple.
