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.

A 12-Year-Old’s Trek of Despair Ends in a Noose at the Border
Noemi Álvarez Quillay took the first steps of the 6,500-mile journey to New York City from the southern highlands of Ecuador on Tuesday, Feb. 4, after darkness fell.

Her grandfather Cipriano Quillay flagged down a ...

Debate Discrimination - Houston Chronicle
We're glad to see Mayor Annise Parker finally stand up and propose a human rights commission that will provide local due process for victims of public discrimination. Parker told the Chronicle editorial board that she plans to release a formal version of her proposal within the next few weeks, but sometimes the process is just as important as the result. As the energy ...

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
