Jody Hice Calls On Congress To Ban 'Discrimination' Against Those Who Practice Anti-Gay Discrimination
Last month, President Obama signed an executive order banning anti-gay discrimination by companies that receive federal contracts and Jody Hice, the right-wing radio host who is the GOP nominee for an open House seat from Georgia, is none too pleased about it, saying on his radio program last month that Obama is thumbing his nose at the First Amendment and calling on Congress to pass legislation prohibiting the federal government from "discriminating" against Christians who want to discriminate against gays.
Citing the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, Hice said that Obama's decision to sign this executive order "is almost like a thumbing of the nose of the president at the U.S. Supreme Court, at our First Amendment, at our unalienable rights ... How else do you look at this but a thumbing of those nose of our administration at our First Amendment and our Supreme Court at the same time."
Hice went on to call upon Congress to repeal Obama's executive order by passing legislation that would "clearly prohibit our government from itself discriminating against any individual or any group or organization, whether nonprofit or for profit, it doesn't matter, to prevent the government from discriminating based on the beliefs about marriage and sexuality."
"Our government, our system, absolutely should be prohibited from discriminating against these types of groups," Hice declared. "Our government should not be allowed to use these things to penalize individuals and groups for not adjusting their philosophies to political correct ideas":
