Skip to comments.Kansas’ Anti-Gay Segregation Bill Is An Abomination
Posted on 02/16/2014 6:56:37 PM PST by Carbonsteel
On Tuesday, the Kansas House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a measure designed to bring anti-gay segregation under the guise of religious liberty to the already deep-red state. The bill, written out of fear that the state may soon face an Oklahoma-style gay marriage ruling, will now easily pass the Republican Senate and be signed into law by the Republican governor. The result will mark Kansas as the first state, though certainly not the last, to legalize segregation of gay and straight people in virtually every arena of life.

Well, we are becoming a nation that worships gays and the gay lifestyle.
Tell me this won't end badly.
As a male nurse, I know, on a personal level, lots of gays. On that personal level, their sin is between themselves and God. I really have little to say about it.
On the societal level, I can’t think of many things that would be more harmful than homosexuality being normalized.
I don’t want gay people to be persecuted, but I don’t want our society to celebrate an obvious aberration.
Sorry, but gay is NOT “normal”.
How will a business know you are gay or straight if you leave you sex in your bedroom?
Gay is also not healthy. Nor is any form of multiple sexual partners.
Didn’t want to click on the link because the bias of the author is obvious(putting “religious liberty” in quotes as if that’s a bad thing) but what exactly would this bill do? Protect the rights of churches and Christian business owners?
What is an abomination are the mentally ill people we have running around now demanding to have their insane whims catered to.
There are around 50+ different variations that “LGBT” people have to choose from as their sex.
I honestly don’t understand it. Can someone declare they are a plant or a mineral? What is someone claims they are Napoleon? Don’t we have to respect their wishes, too?
What Happens when the State FORCES you do serve someone?
Where will these people then, when the first Catholic Church or Synagogue is shutdown or looses it's tax exempt status because it won't preform a gay wedding?
Freedom of Religion?
Freedom of Speech?
Oh that was gone a LONG time ago.
Who holds the Kansas Ping List?
This Article is so stupid it gave me Colon Cancer >:(
Exactly. In their minds, we’re all a bunch of Putin-style “meanies” because we want sexuality to remain private, not public.
Right of free association is an “abomination?”
Only in the fever-mad leftist mind.
Just curious, do any of your homosexual co-workers agree with your statement:
“I dont want gay people to be persecuted, but I dont want our society to celebrate an obvious aberration.”
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Have you heard of the bakery that went out of business because they wouldn’t make a gay wedding cake? This bill should stop such nonsense. People should be able to run their business any way they want and suffer or benefit for their choices (including handicap accessibility - IMO).
I’ve been called racist a few times right here at FR for saying that any business should be able to refuse to serve whoever they want short of life saving care.
Business Inside is owned in whole by the corporatists establishment NWO cabal.
Sounds like a good bill to me. I fear that before long, agreeing with Jesus’s definition of marriage in Matthew 19:4-6 will result in one’s not being allowed to have a job at all.
It’s hard to take the moral high ground on anything once you’ve set the bar so low!

“There will come a time when people will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad they will say, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.’”

What people do in the privacy of their homes is entirely up to them provided that they are mentally competent, consenting adults. Their behavior in public, however, may be regulated. Public behavior is the most regulated thing on Earth. Since this law springs from attacks on the marriage industry, consider this:
What if the loving couples want the photographer to capture those first intimate moments of their marital bliss? What if they want the cake delivered to their little love nest. I don’’t think it unreasonable to politely refuse their requests and suggest that they seek another vendor. There seem to be plenty willing to do it.
They are trying to rub our faces in it, as a sort of revenge for their perceived slights. It has gotten out of hand.
It’s time people faced facts. Normal people (heterosexuals if you will) naturally loath homosexuality. It’s nature, they are born that way. making laws against nature never turn out well. See my tagline.
Racism is not a pretty thing, but in this day and age, do you really think a "No Blacks Allowed" Tavern would thrive?
Who sure it may go over well with the Turner Diaries crowd.
But it simply isn't viable anymore. But the Government shouldn't be there to hold your hand.
Brooker T. Washington though the way to end segregation was to be educated, upright and prosperous citizens.
So the Racist White Man who worked as a car cleaner could drink out of his water Water fountain while the Wealthy Black Shop Owner could drink out of his.
Thus it would come to an end that way.(sadly though W. E. B. Du Bois, the Van Jones of his day though had other ideas)
I want to treat people with respect and assume the best, but I cannot and will not be an enabler for **private behavior** that God tell me is sin.
People are free to do what they want in the privacy of their own homes, and I don’t want a government that presumes the power to tell any of us otherwise. But when two sodomites want to get “married” and to hire me to throw my artistic talents towards supplying them with a service to contribute to that “ceremony”, I am going to decline to accept their money, and to provide any service.
If we allow government to attempt to force me to provid service, I consider this to be a form of tyranny that is not much different than enslavement.
And the behavior of the sodomites about my refusal affirms to me that “gay marriage” is far more about destroying and redefining that godly institution than it is about equal rights.
Business Insider loves the government telling businesses what they must do.
I got in an argument on FB with a 20-something because I said I was a Great Dane. LOL
Which means you get a Pop Quiz!
Which Future President helped Filibuster the 1957 Civil Rights Act?
And Which Arizona Senator supported it?
Personally, I totally agree with you.
Unfortunately there are many right here on Free Republic that disagree with you when it comes to their personal pet peeves. They are all bent out of shape because some government entity has forced some businesses to cater to a certain segment (in this case gays) or go out of business, yet applaud that same government entity when it forces another business to stop catering to a certain segment (in the case of smokers) or go out of business.
I imagine these same people would be up in arms if a baker who was gay refused to do a wedding cake for a heterosexual couple.
“It was one of the primary reasons Goldwater opposed the civil rights act as passed. It stepped over the line and into the private sector and has been a disaster ever since.”
Exactly. And we’ve been turning into the former Soviet Union ever since on the issue of government involvement in private business.
Bingo as usual,Gabz. !!!!
I know Goldwater supported the 57 civil rights act.
Future democrat president in opposition could have been Kennedy.
Just like when Coolidge was pushing anti lynching laws, they were met with democrat filibusters again and again.
At least BI didn’t mention Nazi Germany.
Did you tell him you were “harmless” and just wanted to “lick and slobber all over him”?
While I don't know about Kennedy.
Lyndon Johnson was Majority (minority?) Leader at the time and he helped kill it.
Coolidge did alot to try and unite America.
He granted Native Americans Citizenship. And him and Harding stopped a disastrous Naval Building Race with the British.
What's the abomination, exactly?
Not too many decades ago, these perversions were examples of the definition of "perversion."
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
The only abomination in this story is homosexuality.
Nobody, insofar as I know.
If somebody does, please pop me a line so I can update my list of state ping-lists keepers.
Thanks, my FRiend :-)
So would I.
I have no use for hypocrites, unfortunately there are many floating around here, including long time members, who refuse to see the obvious contradictions in their push for MORE government.
Quit asking sensible questions! Didn't you get the latest memo? To be "gay" is to flame publicly! It's innate! It's nature!
Some locker rooms have taken to banning cellphone use because some same-sex attracted individuals were filming others in states of undress.
But they have ZERO interest in heterosexual people. Really. No, really...
Panties in a wad from another Pink Journalist...
Business Insider certainly doesn’t seem to be very BUSINESS minded.
One FACT that has silently been swept aside by leftist propagandists is that the term "heterosexual" is an objective scientific term that has to do with how a species procreates (with two sexes) ALL gays with few exceptions are heterosexual (male or female). The subjective self identified mental condition termed 'orientation' has no basis in science as an inherent objective state of being -it is a mental condition.
Disorder is more like it.
Having had some experience with homosexuals, male and female I will differ with you that their ‘sin’ is between them and God. Such could very well be applicable to some homosexuals or transvestites but such does not apply to those who broadcast their persuasions. At least such does not apply to the many who flaunt their character and would make laws that say others must give their legal societal standings up for the benefit of the other persons behavior traits.
