Obama to ban discriminating against federal workers who are gay or transgender

• The order will protect federal workers and employees at companies that contract with the federal government

• 'With two strokes of a pen, the President will have a very real and immediate impact on the lives of millions of LGBT people across the country,' human rights activists said

• Obama plans to sign the orders Monday

President Barack Obama plans to sign executive orders Monday prohibiting discrimination against gay and transgender workers in the federal government and its contracting agencies, without a new exemption that was requested by some religious organizations.

Obama's action comes on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling in the Hobby Lobby case that allowed some religiously oriented businesses to opt out of the federal health care law's requirement that contraception coverage be provided to workers at no extra charge. Senior administration officials said Friday that ruling has no impact on non-discrimination policies in federal hiring and contracting.

Thank God he got this straightened out I was worried sick.
