    Unfortunately, this letter is asking that they be allowed to. I hope Obama stands firm on it.

        I know. 30+ years in non-profit work, including some programs under contracts. Do some people ignore the terms, and get away with it? No doubt. But for the most part the "majors" like Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, Salvation Army etc. are pretty careful to abide by all the dotted i's and crossed t's. And I've known of more than few grpuls that declined federal funds so that they wouldn't be bound by non-discrimination requirements.
