Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas has issued an executive order rescinding a previous governor’s executive order that gave special rights to homosexuals in state employment.
This is the kind of thing Republicans need to do once they’re in power, not modify or “improve” policies liberals pass. Rescind. Repeal. Strike down.
The anti-discrimination policy that was in place before was more than good enough. An excerpt:
Brownback issued a new order, reaffirming the state’s commitment to prohibit discrimination based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, gender or religion.
“This executive order ensures that state employees enjoy the same civil rights as all Kansans without creating additional ‘protected classes’ as the previous order did,” Brownback said. “Any such expansion of ‘protected classes’ should be done by the Legislature and not through unilateral action.”
The “protected class” the governor mentioned is what confers special rights. Homosexuals have the same civil rights (and responsibilities) as everyone else. Men who pretend to be women and people same-sex attracted should not be designated as protected classes.
The new majority-Republican Congress should follow suit and repeal Obamacare, stop any form of amnesty for illegal aliens, and commit to strengthening our borders.
