Religious freedom bill stirs controversy in Kansas Statehouse

Of course freedom is under attack. All aspects of individual and group liberty are hunted by malignant Progressive fascism which can't get enough of irrational tyrrany. Forget religious freedom as religion of traditional sorts is shouted down by the babbling frauds that inhabit and currently dominate the altar of deconstruction.

I and hundreds of millions of others do not believe that freedom of speech, action, and association have been run from this America, at least not yet.

I don't want to endorse same sex marriage and homoerotic sexual behaviour as I believe it to be demeaning and destructive to body mind and soul. Just dare to look at the rates of disease ranging from herpes to aids, to Kaposi's sarcoma, to malignant lymphoma, to gay bowl diease to cryptospoidiosis, to T.B., to pnuemocystis Carinii, to depression, suicide, alcoholism and drug addiction. Compare longevity on average of gay versus straight populations. What father, mother, grandparent would want to affirm or endorse or encourage the behaviour that is so harmful to body and psyche.

Forget religious freedom as reason to allow individual and group non-cooperation and non-celebration of the gay party going on just now. What about common sense? What about history? What about science, and yes even what about tradition? What about our rights to use our work, creativity and efforts on behalf of whom we choose and our right not to be forced to make contracts with those who we feel are hurting themselves and giving bad example, even dangerous example to those we love.

Letter: Self-serving values

Freedom of association and pursuit of happiness are guarantees rights in this land- current hysteria not withstanding. In my view homoerotic sexual behaviour is damaging to physical health and mental and spiritual health. There is overwhelming medical and sociological evidence for this conclusion for those interested in studying the issue. I wish these folks well. I hope for the best for them but I don't want to encourage my kids and grandkids and neighbors and friends to emulate them.

More Progressive fascism. You must embrace that which you disagree. You must contract with those you disagree and provide services you do not wish to provide. Progressive fascists are destroying liberty, the freedom to associate and provide your talent and services as you reasonably choose.

For my children and grandchildren, neighbors, and friends there are certain lifestyles I would never encourage them to embrace. In my view these lifestyle choices are demeaning and destructive (and I think there is ample evidence in sociological and medical-psychological literature to support this view). I may choose not to contract my creative talent and services to celebrate them. Despite the current flight to insanity the first ammendment right to speech and association will prevail when the current urge to cultural suicide has passed. Be assured it will pass.

What was your favorite thing about Kansas that has vanished?

I miss small government Kansas. I miss the money I lose in excess taxes each year that are used to turn citizens into dependenmt souls aiming for more goverment handouts. I miss public school teachers who love this country and teach because they love to impart knowledge and wisdom on those who would otherwise be foolish and ignorant. I miss leaders who respect those they lead. I miss a free and objective press which refuses to be lick spittle apologists for the latest progressive fad.

Opinion: Do voters want more Clintonism?

Eileen, No. No more big government politicians who are oh so well connected to the status quo. If conservatives like myself keep voting for big government types we will never get the right of center establishment to chance another Reagan like candidate. No more Dole/Bush/McCain Types at least for the next several election cycles.

Yes Kevin it is so interesting to see that not only pupil to teacher ratio has declined but in constant 1990 dollars the daily wage has increased nearly 450%. Seems we have far too many education lobbyists and far too few wise and altruistic educators.

Eileen, Wisdom is a great virtue and is the basis of understanding, prudence, justice, patience, and altruistic respect. Wisdom is not bought by dollars or hours spent being attended to by another. Wisdom is taught by wise example and patient love. Wisdom not dollars are needed most.

Opinion: Informing the conversation

We could pray for peace and understanding among races. We could teach that man may not be the measure of all things that we men and women tend on our own to wound, humiliate, denegrate others. We need grace and habits of virtue to overcome our prejudices. How about putting a merciful and loving God back into the conversation?

Eileen, I see the imbalance too. So sad. Why they allow any non leftists to be published is a mystery to me too. Mr. Alinsky has more work to do with the editor of this paper as he lets his guard down from time to time and some right of Lenin zealots get printed here. Where do we line up to march against this tyranny?
