Several Kansas communities are being pushed by "LGBT" activists to add homosexuals and transvestites to protected classes in anti-discrimination laws.

 

Kansas appears to be the latest target of “gay” activists determined to force society to embrace their sundry sexual inclinations. According to the Kansas Family Policy Council (KFPC), a conservative pro-family organization, four communities — Hutchinson, Pittsburg, Salina, and Wichita — are being pushed by a state LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) group to add sexual orientation and gender identity to their local non-discrimination ordinances.

The addition of these classifications would mean that homosexuals, along with transvestites and others whose dress and behavior reflect the opposite gender, would receive special protections in the areas of housing, employment, and public accommodations.

There are several elements of the measures that are of deep concern to pro-family leaders, including their potential impact on churches. For example, according to a fact sheet released by the Human Relations Commission of Hutchinson, which is set to vote on an updated non-discrimination code May 15, a church in that city which rents its parish hall or sanctuary to the general public for weddings or other events “could not discriminate against a gay couple who want to rent the building for a party.”

As for employers, the fact sheet reads, they would not be able to “consider sexual orientation or gender identity or expression when making hiring, firing, or other employment related decisions.”
