"Nationally (let's face it), Kansas has a reputation for being backward."

Even backwater PA has multiple cities with glbt rights protection laws.

"gay" can be (and frequently is) used in a collective sense including lesbians.

There's nothing deviant about the "lifestyle". It's pretty much the same as yours.

"smoothly" for whom?

I find a significant sentence in the article is "fearing LGBT freedom diverts from real life threats". Is much easier to rally hate/fear for a group than admit to internal divisions/outside problems not as easy to solve.

While I find what the petitioners to be doing to be morally reprehensible, they have the right to their ugly little exercise in democracy. I've driven by their table set up by the entrance to the park on weekends any number of times. I've had no thought of running them over or even a drive by water ballooning. While I find what they're doing to be seriously flocking offensive, it's their right to do it.

There is some amusement to be had in the fact that they are STILL looking for signatures, for crying out loud, they only need just over a thousand to bring this subject back up again. They've been at this for a month and a half now and other than the idiot who scribbled on their petitions, they really have had nothing to whip up an anti-gay frenzy in the measly 5% of the voters they need to sign.

Sorry, Salina, isn't as anti-gay as these out of towners hoped it would be, they've chosen the wrong battle ground.

I really hate the way deviant lifestyles are being portrayed as normal. Think about it in a biological sense. Was a butthole designed to take a penis?
Tell that to the hookers.. Neither were women's nipples designed to take an adult mouth, but there you have it.. No end to heterosexual "deviant" `practices..

A man sucking on another man's nipples goes beyond "deviant". It wouldn't even make sense, although most homosexual acts don't.

And WHY do men have nipples, smart ass? A throwback to when they fed the young, like sea horses.. Nature doesn't give a damm about differences and variations.. But ignorant homophobes sure do..

It's even funnier knowing that you just don't get the joke. I'd tell you to think about it, but look who I'm posting too. I guess you're just s.o.o.l....

Poor child. You still haven't figured out the joke made at your expense? I'd suggest giving up while you can.
