Will this clear the way for a statue of Obama on public land?
It took a lawsuit and two and a half years before the VA would put a pentacle on the headstone of a Wiccan soldier who had died in Iraq. I can guarantee it would take a lawsuit and another two years before the state would allow one next to a cross at the capitol.
The only "freedom of religion" these people accept is the freedom of their own religion.
nice that our little town/s history now includes Buddhist and Muslims. Going to love that crescent moon being up there by that cross. And a stupa being built next to those. Wonder if these fools wanted that all along -- you know, bring in ALL the religions.
Sounds like a good law that will restore the true and correct intent of the 1st amendment, as it once used to be in this State and Country. May God's blessings come back upon our land as freedom to worship God freely is restored. There is always the freedom to reject God (but I don't recommend it), so God haters still have their freedom of choice.
Liberal thinking people like many of you want inclusivity, until it is someone who doesn't agree with your way of thinking.
We need to get this bill passed and signed ASAP and then watch with glee as the Phelps crowd petitions Topeka to permit them to erect one of their " God hates Fags" on the lawn between the courthouse and city hall in Topeka as part of the religious history of Topeka. No good deed goes unpunished!
Not this again! I so don't care. What does bother me is the glee with which some of these idiots try to force their Christian symbols on the public.
And the last sentence of the article. Could someone say anything more ridiculous and stupid?
We will pay for an extended session because of this frivolous crap.
BTW, one of the more recent pleasures on this lovely site has been watching the distribution of the votes, or the "thumbs up!" given to posts. Without naming specifc users, what I've noticed is that:
Moe always gives thumbs up all of Larry's and Curly's posts.
Larry always gives thumbs up to all of Curly's and Moe's posts.
Curly always gives thumbs up to all of Moe's and Larry's posts.
They also slip up and vote on their own posts, too. It's hilarious!!
And what is "history?"
How long is it? How deep is it? How wide is it?
Who sets that standard?
There is no end to the time these clowns can waste. We should seriously consider shortening the legislative session to 2 weeks to avoid these types of bills. If you want to surround yourself with religious symbols do it at home or in church. You can wear a cross around your neck. You can carry the bible with you wherever you go. You don't need to put the stuff on every single thing, living or dead.
Just add this to the list of bills that will end up in litigation. Assuming it passes.
“I do not believe that having a cross on a sign forces an atheist to be a believer,” Siegfried says. “I just don’t believe that.”
A good idea. A camper in a state park will be able to set their bible outside the trailer or tent without risking having it confiscated.
The religious bigots are out in force today. We have so called "artwork" scattered all over Lawrence and considered religious symbols by the church of the extreme left. What's the difference!
".....if the symbols are considered part of a community’s history or heritage."
The right wing wack job's self proclamaion of religion is "what we define it as" could make this worthless clause fit anything they wanted including "not including" any religious symbol they disapprove of.
These heathens are no more and no less than the devil in disguise and they will get their comeuppance when their day comes.
It is clear that when they use the word "religion", those pushing for display of religious symbols on public property really mean "christian".
Wouldn't it be nice if we could get State Legislators working on solving state's real problems?
I wonder if anyone knows how much of our tax dollars (indirectly) goes to support the ACLU?
Part of the answer is a loser pay court system. This would stop many of these BS lawsuits.
I'll chip in for an Anton LaVey statue. With minor editing some of his 9 principles sound like a corporate manual.

You mean this one?
by Paul R. Getto
The Kansas Legislature can pass all the bills they want. If they're unconstitutional, then they're unconstitutional.
You know, roundabout intersections are an anti-Christian means to rid the world of crosses, replacing them with pagan Whole Earth symbols that remove the ability for folks to meet their Maker head-on as God intended.
I'd like to see what Siegfried would say about a Muslim symbol on a sign.
They may want to get legal advice from an expert in Constitutional law and consider that some communities may have non-Christian symbols before costing the state more legal fees.
It's just a symbol, good grief. What if some loonytoons declare that the symbol of their new religion is the flag of the United States of America? Then suddenly it would be illegal to display the US flag on public land. Don't laugh - that concept is not that outrageous.
For instance, 'Jedi', from 'Star Wars', is now an official religion.
The Jedi Church recognises that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together, and accepts all races and species from all over the universe as potential members of the religion. Join the Jedi Church today!
Burkas for our women will be next...god help us with these clowns...
Maybe the legislature should focus on equitably filling the billion dollar hole in the state budget over the next decade resulting from last years income tax cuts rather than right wing 1950s style morality laws that remind me of modern sharia law and the Taliban...
