Kansas Bill 2453: A step backwards?

A bill that would allow people and businesses to say “no” to providing services for gay weddings is now headed to the senate.

Wednesday the House approved the bill 72 to 49.

It would allow people, groups and businesses to cite religious reasons for refusing to provide goods or services for same sex unions.

The bill comes as federal courts consider invalidating Kansas ban on same sex marriage.

Supporters say it’s about religious freedom. Opponents call it discrimination against the LGBT community. Those who support this bill say it still has a lot of political hoops to jump through.

If passed the bill would bar government sanctions and anti discrimination lawsuits against anyone who refuses to provide services for a gay wedding.
