Chris James Posted February 14, 2014 Report Share Posted February 14, 2014 This isn't even a gay news source and you can see that the opinion is outraged: http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2014/02/13/kansas_anti_gay_segregation_bill_is_an_abomination.html Driven by religious fanatics, the state legislature is making their biggest mistake of the decade. By codifying discrimination of the gay community they are facing expensive litigation in federal courts and the condemnation of other states. I doubt if this moronic law will stand for long, but just long enough to show that Christian zealots have lined up and are goose-stepping in time to the old discriminating ways of their forefathers. What is wrong with these people, have they all gone off the deep end? For years we have been talking about the intolerance of the Christian right only to have them toss back the idea that the gay community is hateful towards God, the Bible, etc. What better proof that bigotry is alive and well in the Christian sphere than something like this. The real shame is that this is a minority Christian group that has influenced the Republican controlled legislature to pass such frivolous laws in a time when real issues are pushed to the back burner. Any group of people that become so fixated on one single issue such as gay rights is doomed to fail as human beings. So now the ACLU will step up, a federal judge will knock down the law as discrimination and a violation of the Constitution. According to the right wing that will be an activist judge who is violating state's rights, something they yell every time things don't go their way. Meanwhile Kansas is high on the list of states with major unemployment and economic problems. Something like this from a minority group will only make the majority suffer. Somewhere along the line one of these discriminatory states is going to ignore federal decree and face consequences. I would have the federal government cut any tax sharing with these states which would mean more for the rest of us. Until this Christian Taliban movement is dead we are going to see more of this crap in the future. We don't need Kansas as much as they need the rest of us. Let the games begin. Quote Link to comment
