Bush Administration moves to remove job protection for gays

In a subtle (aka 'underhand') but far reaching-change it seems that protection for gays from discrimination or harassment in employment is being curtailed. The way this is being done seems to indicate it is a quite deliberate move to roll-back the hard won modicum of protection that gays in the US have enjoyed under Federal Labor Contracts since the signing of an Executive Order by former President Clinton.
