President Obama Refuses To Sign An LGBT Anti-Discrimination Executive Order

President Barack Obama refuses to sign an Executive Order, which would bar federal contractors from discriminating based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

More and more, the LGBT community is seeing that President Obama is spineless, and few, if any, of the supposed LGBT allies in Congress will do anything to put pressure on the President to do the right thing. This, from HuffPost :

"A similar Executive Order preventing discrimination by federal contractors on the basis of race, gender and religion was signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1965. The White House said instead it would try to rally support in Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), though a vote on any gay rights measure is highly unlikely in the GOP-controlled House, and that it would urge the private sector to support non-discrimination.
