Where do religious rights start and where do they end?
    A male employer wants to run his business based on his Beliefs?

    GOD THE EBEL, WUT WILL WE DO

    I mean seriously.

    He should be able to hire whoever the **** he damn well pleases, based on race or religion. It's his damned Business, Literally.

The executive order does not contain general rules but applies specifically to work the federal government does with private contractors. For instance, religious charities that do not have to hire people who are gay under current law would not be cut out of federal contract work if the authors of the letter get what they want.
