    What, then, is the purpose of a judiciary?

    Pretty much what the Nazis did to German judges, when you get down to it.

    This story relates not to KY - no bun intended - butt to KS. The bill is hopelessly vague and ambiguous and could, predictably, be struck down by any KS court.

    This is yet another example of why I'd not sign a petition today with regard to calling for an Article V convention on the Constitution as proposed by Wolfpac or any random elephunt in sheep's clothing. And not that they're that but who knows where that idea initiated.

    It's hard to image that the congress of our founding fathers' day had the idiots we have today. Hopefully we have some people at least nearly as bright as their brightest or at least bright enough to be able to comprehend their brightest. But it seems mathematically impossible that they had people as dim witted as we have today.

    Just image as they were creating this, one of their right wingers declaring the Constitution meant only for white men.

    Now imagine today a party of congress denying LGBT rights.

    Did living in a world of slavery excuse them. Does living in a world of homophobia excuse the right wing today?

    Will living in the corporate world be the excuse tomorrow?

    Kansas Governor Signs Anti-Gay 'Religious Liberty' Bill Into Law

    Brownback Says Law Protects Discriminatory Groups That Are the 'Building Blocks of Society'


    "Brownback called those groups "building blocks of society," and didn't waste any time placing his signature on SB 175, which passed less than one week ago. The bill makes it legal for religious groups at postsecondary schools – even those colleges and universities that receive taxpayer funds – to discriminate against LGBT students. "
