Boy, I hope GD is the place for this topic. I thought of IMHO. But it says it is for “less-than-cosmic topics”, which as you will see, this is definitely not.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I read about this proposed legislation in Kansas. (And yes, I am rather angry too as I write this.) But even more troubling is the following excerpt from the same article:
Forgive me if I am wrong. But aren’t state functions and facilities governed by the U.S Constitution? And hasn’t the SCOTUS ruled repeatedly that gays have the full protection (or something near that) of the US Constitution?
Also, I don’t know if I read it right. But does this mean if a gay person is murdered or the victim of a hate crime, the police can refuse to get involved? I know where I live (MI), they are considering making it legal to refuse emergency medical care on “religious” grounds, which I think is wrong. But even for hate crimes/murder? That’s sick.
Someone, please answer my questions. And, yes, tell me your opinion too (as I said, I am still very angry).
