Excuse me, but…

I wrote to the members of the Kansas House Judiciary committee today regarding the “Kansas Preservation of Religious Freedom Act" which would among other things make the statutes passed by some cities in the state to prevent anti-gay discrimination unenforceable. I got a response already. And it included the following.

I agree that being gay does not bring cause for discrimination by the current standards of state and federal law. It also does not entitle a person to special protections.

Excuse me, but since when is not being fired for being gay a “special protection”?

Thanks for nothing, State Representative Greg Smith.
