NOM lobbies for Kansas right-to-flout-nondiscrimination-ordinance law

by Jeremy Hooper

While a bold statement coming from someone who has as closely monitored the opposition movement as I have, I will say that I don't think I've ever seen the anti-LGBT side so fully misrepresent an idea as they are these new baker/florist/photog laws that are popping up around the country. From pretending that the discriminator is the "victim" rather than the person who was cruelly and embarrassingly denied service to suggesting that vendors who sell items for a wedding reception are somehow participating in the marriage ceremony to framing religious freedom as being an unfettered right that trumps all other freedoms, the reliably deceptive anti-LGBT movement has taken it up a notch with these new attempts to chip away at local anti-discrimination ordinances so that people who cite their personal faith can just up and ignore protections that pertain to LGBT consumers. I'll have more on this later.

For now, check out NOM's latest bit of advocacy on behalf of one of these truly chilling proposals:
