Obama Admin. Gay Agenda Side-steps Congress, Again

Purposely negating the will of the People, President Obama's Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued proposed regulations to provide special status for sexually deviant behavior.

-- From "Housing policy and the gay community" by Ed O'Keefe, Washington Post Staff Writer 1/23/11

HUD has unveiled a series of proposed rule changes that would prohibit lenders from using sexual orientation or gender identity as a way of determining a borrower's eligibility. The rule change would state that eligible families have the opportunity to participate in HUD-based programs regardless of marital status or sexual orientation.

If approved, HUD's proposed rule changes would join a growing list of policy reforms made by federal agencies that don't require congressional approval. The changes include a State Department decision to make passport application forms for children more gender-neutral by including "Parent 1" and "Parent 2" alongside "Mother" and Father." The Census Bureau also plans to publicly disclose the number of same-sex relationships reported in the 2010 Census and hopes to officially count same-sex marriages for the first time with the 2020 Census.

President Obama has also extended some benefits to the same-sex partners of gay and lesbian federal workers.
