Obama pressed on faith-based hiring

(CNN) - President Obama signaled Friday he has no intention of rescinding a controversial executive order that permits some faith-based organizations which receive federal funding to discriminate against non-believers in their hiring practices.

The president’s comments on the matter came during a town hall event in Maryland, when a questioner who identified herself as an atheist pressed Obama on statements he made as a candidate in 2008 suggesting he was against permitting discriminatory hiring among faith-based organizations backed by taxpayer dollars.
