The Kansas Discriminatory Bill Was Killed By The Senate

Written by

Since now several weeks we hear of bills aiming at legalizing discriminations against LGBT people. Some of these laws, if approved, would even prevent any legal action and would thus block possible challenges against discriminatory laws like same-sex marriage bans.

Until a few days ago, there were four states, Idaho, Kansas, Arizona and Tennessee, to have introduced bills like that. From now on, one breathes a little bit better in Kansas where the bill was killed, but for how long?

Whereas it had been approved by the House last week (72-49), the bill which would have allowed companies to refuse services to LGBT people based on religion was rejected by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by a Republican, Jeff King.

However, this one keened to specify to The Associated Press that his committee would hear other religious liberty protections in future.

Another bill could come out and perhaps that would be much more discriminatory than this first attempt, which spoke only to companies related to marriage.
