WASHINGTON, June 1 (LSN) – On Thursday, President Clinton signed an executive order granting “minority” status to   homosexuals, by adding the term “sexual orientation” to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination in federal   law. “Individuals should not be denied a job on the basis of something that has no relationship to their ability to   perform their work,” Clinton said. While Clinton’s measure is restricted to the public sector, he urged Congress to   pass similar legislation across the board.
