tarkin1: You can not practice human sacrifice simply because you are practicing Incan High Priest.
Eddie Adams from Torrance: I'm getting a job as a county clerk in Kansas.My religion prohibits having contact with bigots and morons.I'll be in once a month to pickup my check.
I drunk what: kansas is racist because it is afraid
Tomahawk513: I know right? And they always got to eat around back. "Around back" was always this magical land of mystery and adventure. How come I was never invited? What was back there? Couches? Bowling? Jawbreaker dispensers? A fountain of chocolate champagne?
Aquapope: Voiceofreason01: Aquapope: I'm a Kansan, born and raised for almost my whole lifeI can smell the Johnson County on you from all the way over here.You're from Wyandotte County, how can you smell anything over the meth fumes?
busy chillin': What war did we lose?
Aquapope: I'm a Kansan, born and raised for almost my whole life. I apologize. I really do. I can't explain Kansas. I actually know the wife (dated her in high school) of one of the GOP bigwigs in the Kansas Government, and she used to be a very liberal person. Then something happened to her... Kansas has always been pretty Jesusy, but it's turned incredibly virulent in the last 10 years.I live about 2 miles from this dirtbag Macheers, and I can attest that everybody around here is the wealthy-class, "I got mine, fark you", afraid-of-everything kind of GOP bastard. Somehow that plutocrat idealology gets a religious nut sidecar and that's cool to these people. It's turned the local school district from one of the best in the nation in the early 90s to just another mediocre, underfunded indoctrination machine for Koch clones.I'm the only non-lunatic, non-religious person in my extended family except my lesbian cousin who moved to Oregon in the 70s and my father who has turned from the dark side in the last 10 years because of the growing evil of Brownbackistan. Everybody else in my family lost their minds when a black guy was elected president. Before you ask "Why don't you move", well, it's my home and I'd rather stay and try to fix it, or if I can't do that, try to protect my nieces and nephews from becoming pod-people.Again, I'm so sorry for Kansas. All I can say is please enjoy KU hoops as a very small, somewhat redeeming aspect of this rectum of a state./crying in the corner of a rectangular state...
Mrembo: tobcc: I use the same argument with coworkers/ family that scream about gay marriage will ruin the world. If you dont want to get gay married, then dont. If someone elses marriage affects your marriage than you got a an F-d up marriage. I do wonder what will happen when this law gets thrown out, I would love to see a gay couple force Westboro Baptist to marry them.What is their response to you? (Your coworkers / family).
CheapEngineer: eagles95: So when is Brownback going to start putting out feelers he wants to be President in 16. He's doing a great job with this, no taxes on business, abortion. Plus living in a fly over state, he can say stupid crap and not worry about it. Kind of like Walker except without the permanent DERP look[brownbackistan.files.wordpress.com image 160x207]

thurstonxhowell: cchris_39: That seems like a pretty reasonable compromise.Yeah. They'd like to burn gays at the stake, sane people would like to treat gays like they would treat any other people. Clearly, this is an example of a situation where both sides need to compromise.
Eskaminagaga: I don't see what everyone is up in arms about. This bill seems more like a way to avoid being sued by homosexual couples for not wanting to celebrate or aid their marrage in any way. The language in the bill specifically calls out:Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no individualor religious entity shall be required by any governmental entity to do anyof the following, if it would be contrary to the sincerely held religiousbeliefs of the individual or religious entity regarding sex or gender:(a) Provide any services, accommodations, advantages, facilities,goods, or privileges; provide counseling, adoption, foster care and othersocial services; or provide employment or employment benefits, related to,or related to the celebration of, any marriage, domestic partnership, civilunion or similar arrangement;(b) solemnize any marriage, domestic partnership, civil union orsimilar arrangement; or(c) treat any marriage, domestic partnership, civil union or similararrangement as valid.It looks more like a reaction to the guy who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex couple getting married than a "green light" for discrimination against homosexuals.
Theaetetus: cchris_39: If an individual employee objects on religious grounds, they will be assigned to employee who does not object and still get same services rendered to other Kansans. That's all it says.What if all employees in that office object?
Leishu: I will withhold comment until I can tell if you're just being a bit silly, as I am not familiar with your modus operandi.
keylock71: How pathetic is it there are people here in favor of enabling bigotry among state and municipal workers and protecting them from any consequences of denying tax payer funded services to homosexuals?...And calling it a "compromise"? Unreal.
propasaurus: inglixthemad: So, because I'm a Catholic and hate Protestants I'm cool to discriminate against them.Good to know.No, that's discrimination. However, because I'm Baptist, I'm now free to discriminate against those pagan idolater Catholics.
suebhoney: So what happens when a newly married woman goes to the dmv, shows her marriage license but her new husband's name is something like Lindsey, which is a gender-neutral name, the dmv person is going to deny the new license?LULZ
NkThrasher: "Do your damned job as prescribed by law and provide services to citizens, stop trying to pretend you can artificially filter it based on your own personal biases".
Serious Black: Tricky Chicken: Can we just tag and release all the people that live(ed) in Kansas please. Just a tattoo on their forehead that says 'I chose to live in Kansas' or something like that. That way if you ever see one speaking, you are forewarned.I currently live in Lawrence and think this bill is abhorrent at best. Should I get stamped too?
cchris_39: Ah, so even though your services are not at all compromised you would force others to disregard their own religious beliefs.Thanks for letting us know your true feelings on the matter.
Theaetetus: Rann Xerox: In the below photo, I will let the viewer determine which person represents the state of Kansas and which person represents Article Six of the United States Constitution (Clause 2), also known as the Supremacy Clause:Neither?Anti-discrimination law is up to the states under the 10th Amendment, subject to the requirements of equal protection and due process under the 14th Amendment. The Supremacy Clause is only tangentially related to this in saying "go look at Amendment 14". Before the 14th Amendment, states could - and did - have very different discrimination laws. In fact, many states had (gasp) state religions, which would violate the 1st Amendment if the Supremacy Clause was naively applied in such a manner as you suggest.
Dr Dreidel: Let's ask an actual Old Testament believer (and religious scholar) for his opinion: "Bashing Gays is Not 'Religion'".// not like they'll take a Jew's word for it// they don't even listen to Jesus anymore
HMS_Blinkin: Bloody William: "Discrimination is horrible. It's hurtful ... It has no place in civilized society, and that's precisely why we're moving this bill," Macheers said. "There have been times throughout history where people have been persecuted for their religious beliefs because they were unpopular. This bill provides a shield of protection for that."I... I hate you, Mr. Macheers. I've never met you, but I actually have some small spark of hate for the sentiment and hypocrisy you display.Small? SMALL spark of hate? You're a better person than me, apparently.Spark
Zeb Hesselgresser: Kansas has gay people?[pcj.typepad.com image 800x369]

Pants full of macaroni!!: Just f**king secede already.
