Religious freedom bill stirs controversy in Kansas Statehouse

Help me understand your last comment. You say the same principle applies because trait status and beliefs are two different things. That seems contradictory, but I might not be getting your point.

I believe individuals have the right to discriminate, but the government does not and the government has the right when they are providing funding to attach strings including non-discrimination ones.

Requiring a college religious group to be open does not infringe upon their religious freedom when they are receiving funding support.

Kansas House panel to hear 'religious freedom' bill for campus groups

Either discrimination is acceptable or it isn't. It can't be both.

I realize this is the extreme but look at KU basketball. They discriminate. Not everyone can play on the team and no, not everyone has the same opportunity to make the team.

While the team may not overtly discriminate along racial or gender lines, the sport lends itself to racial and gender discrimination as proven by the racial and gender makeup of the team

Oh, but we love basketball so we excuse it.

And let's take the high road and not accept scholarship money obtained from groups that discriminate based on race, gender or sexual orientation.

No discrimination means no discrimination, or does it?

Fred, call it a fad if you want but keep in mind our country was founded in part on religious freedom. And, our founding fathers believed your rights came from our creator.

Part of the problem stems from the non-religious pushing too hard and too far. It is only a natural reaction to push back at some point.

Live your life as you choose but let others live their lives too.

For example, Hobby Lobby is a private business. Leave them alone when it comes to the health benefits they offer or don't offer. It is between them and their employees but no, people like you have to attack them.

Well, what do you expect from people who get attacked? Just to lie there and take it? Nope. You get legislation like this.

Same thing with bakers who don't want to bake gay wedding cakes. Leave them alone and take your business to a baker that wants your business.

But no, attack them and you get laws like Indianas

Just because you can attack doesn't mean you should.

Just like now, I bet Fred can't respond to this civilly.

It was argued that there aren't restrictive gun laws. Take a look at this.
