BREAKING: Kansas’ Hateful “Religious Based” LGBT Discrimination Bill BLOCKED In Senate!



Kansas’ hateful “religious based” bill that would have legally allowed  discrimination against LGBT’s in that state has been blocked in its current form by several Senate Republicans who joined the overwhelming Democrat opposition:

Susan Wagle, a conservative Republican who is president of the Kansas Senate, raised opposition to the House measure, saying she had “grown concerned about the practical impact of the bill” and “my members don’t condone discrimination.”

Ms. Wagle was backed by Senator Jeff King, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, who said he would not hold hearings on the House bill. Instead, Mr. King said, his committee would hold hearings on the broader topic of religious freedom in Kansas and explore whether the Legislature needed to take any further steps to shore up those protections.

The bill which would essentially introduce a “new segregation” in the United States would allow people, groups, and businesses and even city employess such as Doctors and Firemen to legally discriminate against LGBT individuals based on religious beliefs.

On The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur laid out the details in this deplorable Kansas bill.
