To the editor:
This latest proposal to legalize discrimination against gays by allowing business to deny them goods and services is so blatant and offensive that Kansas has got not just the attention of the other states and the federal government, but even nations in Europe and other civilized societies. They are asking “What in the world is happening in the land of the formerly free?”
Next we have the suggestion that the inside of your car gives you the right to expect privacy so that in Kansas you may carry loaded guns despite the fact that one out of eight or ten cars you meet at after 11 p.m. may be operated by a legally impaired driver who also may have with him or her a firearm that is also loaded. The right to expect privacy would seem to imply that police officers would have to have a warrant to search if the offending evidence is not in plain view? Just how stupid and dangerous would this be?
One wonders just what their attitude is going to be toward interracial marriage? Going back a few years and examining Mississippi’s record should act as a probable guide.
