Denounce Kansas's Anti-Gay, Pro-Discrimination Law

A bill that just passed in the Kansas House of Representatives would allow businesses to refuse business to anyone in a gay marriage, gay civil union, or a "similar arrangement."

The law goes further. Journalist Andrew Sullivan describes it:

"It gives the full backing of the law to any restaurant or bar-owner who puts up a sign that says “No Gays Served”. It empowers employees of the state government to refuse to interact with gay citizens as a group. Its scope is vast: it allows anyone to refuse to provide “services, accommodations, advantages, facilities, goods, or privileges; counseling, adoption, foster care and other social services; or provide employment or employment benefits” to anyone suspected of being complicit in celebrating or enabling the commitment of any kind of a gay couple."

Stand up for equality and denounce Kansas's anti-gay, pro-discrimination law.
