To the editor:
Members of the new Kansas Legislature are beginning to show their true agendas. This includes shoving their religious and right-wing social values down our throats. The latest attempt targets clubs that have exotic dancers. The latest laws that they are attempting to enact will severely regulate how much clothing the dancer must have on and the distance the dancers can come near patrons. Of course, the whole idea is to terminate such clubs all together. There is absolutely no reason for such regulation because there is nothing that contributes to criminal activity.
These are the same Republican legislators that are always complaining about government regulation. However, these hypocrites are most willing to legislate their idea of morality and pass regulations that will enforce their will. Instead of concentrating on the main problems of Kansas such as creating job opportunities for the numerous people on unemployment, they waste their time on trivial issues.
You can’t legislate morality, it is not a black-and-white issue. What is immoral to these legislators is just natural and not immoral to many people such as myself. My advice to these right-wing conservatives is to mind your own business and live your life as you like and we will live as we like. Stop trying to force your values on others!
