Default Re: Kansas’ Anti-Gay Segregation Bill

Apparently the Kansas legislature is like the U.S. Congress. The House passes stuff that does not have a snowball's chance in hell of being enacted into law because it feels good and then adult supervision kicks in

A Kansas bill shielding anyone refusing to provide service to same-sex couples on religious grounds appears to be in serious jeopardy.

Senate President Susan Wagle took the unusual step Thursday night of issuing a statement saying the bill — which has drawn an avalanche of national criticism — didn’t have the support of a majority of Republicans in her chamber.

“A strong majority of my members support laws that define traditional marriage, protect religious institutions and protect individuals from being forced to violate their personal moral values,” Wagle said.

“However, my members also don’t condone discrimination.”
