Or Arizona, either.
Both Kansas and Arizona are in the process of trying to pass legislation that will protect the religious freedom of business owners by allowing them to deny goods and services to gay people based on the owner’s religious beliefs.
And people are up in arms over this.
News reports indicate this is predominately to support the religious freedoms of those who provide goods and services related to weddings.
What could possibly make the buying decision of gays and lesbians easier than immediately knowing which businesses not to frequent? How about the socially moderate public who is simply looking to purchase the highest quality goods and services for themselves and their loved ones?
Can you imagine a department store, car dealer, hair salon, night club, restaurant, jeweler or travel agent refusing to provide goods and services to gay people?
At the risk of being flip, I’d welcome a sign something like this to tell me where not to shop.
We are at a great point in history in regard to supporting equal protection of existing laws for gay people.
I think it’s high time those in Kansas and Arizona who wish to actively discriminate against gay people identify themselves and let market forces determine their fate.
Today’s Gay Agenda: For the record, the stereotype about gays being the best florists, bakers, chefs, event planners and designers is pretty much true. If you seek out businesses that displays a rainbow slash in a window, plan on watching your daughter walk down the aisle in a Jaclyn Smith poly-cotton blend wedding frock and then retiring to the local community center/learning anex where your guests will suffer through cheese whiz on cinnamon swirls, a grape jello/cool whip salad, some ground up pickle relish on day old bread sticks, and then dance to “Burn baby burn, disco inferno” beneath spastically flashing Christmas lights and crepe paper pinatas from the party supply discount bin.
