Note to self: Avoid Kansas permanently if at all possible.

Oh and let me state for the record that I am a Christian and I DO NOT believe that my "religious freedom" gives me the right to hate and discriminate on people without repercussion.

I also don't think Gays, black people, latinos and single mothers are second class citizens.

Religious tyranny trying to masquerade as religious freedom.

Christian Reconstructionism at its very finest. To these individuals, things like the 14th Amendment don't apply to them because those pesky gays are just subhuman anyways (where have we heard this argument before?)

Interesting post - I'd clarify the title to note that Pending Kansas Legislation Would Make Discrimination Legal. It's not yet law - it's passed the House, awaiting the Senate and Governor's approval.

So, if I start a religion to justify it, I can do whatever I want? That would be really cool if I wanted to live in a dystopian nightmare. Which I don't.

re: #5 lawhawk

Unfortunately it'll pass. I've lived in KS most of my life, and there isn't exactly much opposition to this bill around here. (The Governor's already agreed to sign it when it goes through the senate)

Hmmmm. How about a Civil War in reverse? No need to fire a shot; just draw a line around Certain States and kick them the heck out of the Union.

We of course will accept "refugees" who want to live in a civilized country, where people don't live in the Dark Ages.

These "Christians" sure aren't very Christlike:
Mathew 25:41-45
41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

re: #10 aagcobb

I'm sure the Conservative Bible Project can explain to you how that was mistranslated or added later by that well known socialist James I.
I did search for any reference to how it was translated by the good folks at CBP and came up empty. I'm sure Andy Schlafly will have it available for all of us in no time.

And another socially-regressive state legislature takes a giant step toward replacing democracy and civil rights with theocracy and legalized intolerance/discrimination.
