A coalition of faith and humanist groups is calling on President Obama to make good on his promise to issue an executive order that would protect the LGBT employees of federal contractors from discrimination. In their joint letter, the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and non-believing groups expressed “disappointment” in Obama’s recent decision not to sign the order and highlighted studies that show widespread support for the protections. The alliance included The Episcopal Church, Muslims for Progressive Values, and the American Humanist Association, among others.
