Is there something arcane about the establishment clause?  Seriously. These nitwits seem to think that they need to discriminate against gay people in order not to discriminate against their churches. Therefore, a non-discrimination ordinance should be crafted in recognition of religion.

To get their way they start petition drives seeking to thwart equal protection under the law. Then these pricks are shocked     shocked     that their names, as part of a public process, are not kept secret. Furthermore, isn’t it time for these people to stop referring to equal rights as special rights     especially considering that they are the ones demanding protection under the law that is constitutionally prohibited?

All of these Family Policy Councils are becoming remarkably similar to the “White Citizens Councils” of our past. Most of the rest of the world has moved on with the exception of the fundamentalist Muslim countries. The obvious comparison should embarrass the hell out of these folks but probably won’t.

Kansas Paper Publishes Personal Information of Petition Signers 

by Karla Dial

Four towns in Kansas are considering adopting sweeping “nondiscrimination” ordinances that give preferential treatment to transgender and homosexual individuals — Hutchinson, Pittsburg, Salina and Wichita.

The Kansas Family Policy Council (KFPC) has been collecting petition signatures from people in those towns who feel adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to existing civil rights ordinances is a step that actually discriminates against churches. Many fear such laws trample religious liberties and freedom of conscience, and that privacy and safety issues regarding gender-segregated facilities will be ignored.

On Monday, the group delivered 344 petition signatures to the Salina City Commission. Within hours, the local newspaper had a copy of the petition and had published on its website the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of all the people who signed it.
