Oh come on, we're Kansas for Christ sake! What did you expect us to do, pass a law BANNING discrimination? Have you been paying attention since ever? Hell, we only supported freeing the slaves because it pissed Missouri off.

FTFA:
"I don't think an ordinance should trump other people's religious rights," said Rep. Jan Pauls, a Democrat on the Judiciary Committee that heard testimony about the bill. During a forum earlier this year, Pauls gave an example to explain why she backs the bill, saying an employer should be allowed to fire a "cross dresser."

"The question is personal belief as far as religion," she said. "Should that be trumped by forcing people to then support a lifestyle that they don't support due to their religion?"


I completely agree with this. Why, just the other day, I was lamenting how the law renders me unable to sacrifice nubile young virgins to my lord Quetzalcoatl.

Guys, guys, it's OK. As RON PAUL will surely tell you, if there's any actual injustice going on there then the free market will sort it out in a jiffy! For is not the market the most perfect of all possible markets, just as God Almighty Hisself intended?

I would say yes, but they try to cover their asses on that one by saying "Any person found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have abused the protection of this act by making a fraudulent claim may be enjoined from filing further claims under this act without leave of court."

Which just means that your "religion" has to be based on a poorly-sourced book that's at least a few hundred years old and not just invented in your mind. And that also means that the state of Kansas is going to be sued into oblivion by people whose religions they find to be fraudulent.


Mormons are hosed then.

So, Kansas is pro- Sharia Law.

DON'T HAVE A BAR MITZVAH.
But don't tell me I can't have one because it conflicts with YOUR religious beliefs.
Or that I can't have an abortion because of your religious beliefs.
Or that I can't same gender marry because of your fricking religious beliefs.
Or that I should be fired because of your Goddamned religios beliefs.

That sounds reasonable. Why should my religious rights be trampled by your sheer audacity to exist as you are?


And hopefully they will try this out on a Scotsman.

meat0918: I love a good Supremacy clause fight.

New GOP slogan
"Because if we can't win fairly, we'll screw the fark out of anyone that lets us"


The single most important thing that Republicans in the US Congress have to do is ensure that Barack Obama is a one term president. Eric Cantor said that. The Single Most Important thing. Not "solving the economic crisis", "creating jobs", "passing a budget", "defending the Constitution", "following our oaths of office". Making sure that the sheriff is no longer near as of January 2013.

The First Amendment guarantees your right to have a religion.
The Second Amendment guarantees your right to have a gun.

But neither amendment gives you the right to use EITHER ONE to take away the rights of someone else.

PERIOD.
