Kansas House Advances Bill Allowing Religion-Based Discrimination Against Gays
By Andy Towle
Kansas, The Kansas House has approved a bill allowing people, groups, and businesses to discriminate against gay couples based on religious beliefs, the AP reports:
The vote Tuesday was 72-42. The measure advanced even though critics suggested the bill would encourage widespread discrimination against gays and lesbians.
The House plans to take final action on the bill Wednesday, and it's likely to pass.

Sigh....still trying to equate "race", a relatively modern concept, like "sexual identity", with sex.
The state does issues same sex marriage licenses to two people of the same sex. Issuance of the license does not suddenly make a same sex pair into "husband and wife", and transfer all the accompanying cultural, social, historical, and sexual, understanding of marriage to them.
Nope, the state issues a marriage license, regardless of the gender or race or faith etc of the couple.

Nowhere on my marriage license did it say "same sex marriage license"; it just said "marriage license". Just as it doesn't say "opposite sex marriage license" or "inter-racial marriage license" or "inter-faith marriage license" on any of those couple's licenses.

Correction:
Would SB1062 exempt Christian bakers, photographers and other Christian service industry owners from participating in Satanic rituals, also? Religion is a protected class as much as race, gender, etc. are. For many Christians, gay wedding ceremonies may as well be a Satanic ritual.
It would also allow others to discriminate against christians, based on the non-christian's deeply held religious beliefs.

It would also allow catholics to discriminate against protestants based on the Catholic person's deeply held religious beliefs.

Which is exactly why the bill will be overturned by the courts if the Gov is dumb enough to sign it.

As always you see reality backwards. The laws that force people to serve customers they do not want to serve are unconstitutional, Arizona just passed a bill to correct the unconstitutional bad, unfair and unjust law because it violated the rights of some people so gay people would not be offended.
But you miss the point and that is because of stupid people like yourself trying to force a baker to bake a gay wedding cake Arizona repealed this unconstitutional law. Just as I said this would back fire on you stupid people 6 months ago. The posts are all there and I have their numbers and page numbers where you said this would never happen. You were wrong, Wrong WRONG!
And just look at how you are now saying what I have been saying which is that laws that force people to do things they don't want to do don't work. You just agreed with me you asinine POS!
You and the other authoritarian gays said people should be forced to serve gays and a baker objected to bring attention to this unconstitutional law and sure enough Arizona listened and passed a law so its citizens will not be forced to kowtow to gays.
And you NEVER answered why you would rather go to a bigot baker instead of a gay one. I support the gay community more than you do. Your arrogance is despicable!
Psst, Arizona never had a law forcing any baker to serve gays & lesbians. They've ALWAYS been able to discriminate against us. If this bill becomes law, it changes NOTHING in Arizona for gays & lesbians; they'll still be able to discriminate against us just as they always have.

No baker has EVER been forced to bake a cake in ANY state.

I would go to whomever is the best baker or gave me the best value, regardless of their sexual orientation or religious beliefs. It's not about supporting the "gay community", because I'm part of a larger society. Expecting me to only go to gay bakers is just as discriminatory as expecting blacks to only go to black owned businesses. Only bigots choose who they do business with based on the race or religion or sexual orientation or gender of the business owner. Just as only bigots choose to their customers based on the race or religion or sexual orientation or gender of the customer.

The only way we get past these petty prejudices are for EVERYONE to stop making decisions about who to do business with or where to shop or where to live based on those biases.

In America the US Constitution recognizes that we are born with rights and the Constitution determines what rights are and what limits shall be placed on the government to prevent it from violating our rights. Which the anti-discrimination laws do.
Hmmm, so the Constitution determines that?

Are you sure??

Just how does an inanimate object do that???

Nice try Imp, but the person was obviously a queer. Never married, never fathered children, hated women and even little girls. That is the profile of a gay bastard and the sooner they put him in the ground the better off everybody will be. Any one who would cut up a little girl is the most disgusting type of homosexual and the sooner society gets angry enough to remove the queer element from our midst, the better off America will be.

Gays and lesbos are degenerate animals that prey on society.

LIAR! I have the post number and the page number where you said this would never happen. They didn't attempt anything, the Senate Bill Passed, it is now law, if you swish your way into a bakery and demand they bake you a cake they can tell you to go screw yourself. I told you this was going to happen and you called me names saying it would NEVER happen. It just happened.
Pssst, you obviously flunked you civics class- a bill doesn't become a law until AFTER the Gov signs it, which she hasn't yet.

And as I keep pointing out, Arizona never had an anti-discrimination law which covered sexual orientation, so a baker in Arizona could ALWAYS turn away a gay or lesbian customer.

No state has overturned an anti-discrimination law covering sexual orientation, just as I said.

Wow, you really ARE stupid.

The point is that this is the backlash because you and your fellow authoritarians behaved badly. If that baker in Colorado hadn't of said no Arizona would not even be discussing this. You shot yourself in the foot.
No, the point is YOU WERE WRONG- AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

The bill has NOT become law.

Even IF it become law, bakers in Arizona have ALWAYS been able to turn away gays & lesbians because their public accommodation bill never covered sexual orientation.

But you're right about one thing- if the baker in Colorado hadn't of said "no" and hadn't discriminated against a gay couple, no one would be discussing it because it would never have happened.

Wow, you really ARE stupid!

Another gay killing a child. When will we get the gay curse out of our society?
SPRINGFIELD, Mo.(AP) A police search of the southwest Missouri home of a middle-school football coach accused in a 10-year-old girl's kidnapping and death found child pornography and more than a dozen guns, according to search warrants released Friday.
Officers retrieved a three-ring binder containing pornographic photos of young children at the home of Craig Michael Wood, the documents released by Springfield police say. Investigators also seized computers, cameras, 30 video recordings, handwritten journals, a spent .22 caliber shell casing and a hat believed to have been worn by fourth-grader Hailey Owens.
Wood is accused of snatching Hailey as she walked home from her best friend's house this week, just two blocks from her own home. Neighbors said they watched in horror and unsuccessfully gave chase as Hailey was pulled into a pickup truck that sped away.
At a brief hearing Friday, Wood's lawyer said he plans to plead not guilty. Wood appeared via video from the Greene County Jail, where he is being held without bond. He spoke only briefly to answer several questions from the judge. Hailey's parents, older brother and five other family members also attended.
Court records released earlier as well as the search warrants indicate her body was found in Wood's basement, stuffed into trash bags and plastic containers. Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson said Hailey was shot in the back of the head and had ligature marks on her wrists, suggesting she was tied up. A preliminary autopsy is complete but won't be released publicly because the criminal case remains open, according to the county medical examiner's office.
Patterson said he is considering whether to seek the death penalty. At the arraignment, public defender Chris Hatley said Wood plans to contest the charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and armed criminal action.
Assistant prosecutor Todd Myers challenged Wood's use of a public defender after he said police found evidence of a $1 million trust in Wood's name. The source of that income is not clear: Both Wood's father and an attorney representing the suspect's parents did not return telephone calls seeking comment on Friday.
"I think he can afford his own attorney," Myers said. Hatley replied that he appreciated the prosecutor's concern for Wood's rights but that "it's frankly none of his business." Circuit Judge Dan Imhof said he would consider the matter. He scheduled a follow-up court appearance in March and a preliminary hearing in April.
Wood was a 16-year football coach at a middle school in Springfield, about 160 miles southeast of Kansas City. He also worked as a substitute teacher and teacher's aide overseeing suspensions. Police said they found Wood holding duct tape as he left his father's pickup truck parked outside his home Tuesday night, just hours after Hailey went missing. Court records indicate the floor of the basement where the girl's body was found was still damp with bleach presumably used to clean the crime scene.
Wood had little criminal history, according to online court records. He pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance in 1990 in Greene County and was fined $100. Wood also was convicted in 2001 for illegal taking of wildlife, a misdemeanor. Friends said Wood is an amateur bluegrass musician and hunter who never married or had children and whose parents raised show horses.
Those who knew Hailey recalled a child who loved to laugh, smile and dance. Thousands are expected to attend a candlelight vigil in her honor Saturday night.
Newsflash for ya there Jimmie boy

The MAN killed a 10 yr old GIRL, that makes him a murderer.

now if he also sexually assaulted her that would make him a pedophile
