Kansas governor rescinds protections for gay state workers

Sure, why not? Hire/don’t hire based on physical appearance. I mean why protect the handicapped? Or anyone really? Let this country continue down the path it’s been traveling a while now: one of hatred and major intolerance. Take away ALL of the things you can discriminate on, because you know people want that.

(Reuters) – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, a conservative Republican re-elected in November, on Tuesday rescinded an executive order issued by a Democratic predecessor that offered protections for gay and bisexual state workers.

Brownback said he was rescinding a 2007 order signed by former Governor Kathleen Sebelius that established a “protected class of rights” for state employees specifically for sexual orientation and gender identity.

In its place, Brownback said he was issuing an executive order that would boost state employment-related aid for veterans and disabled people, while reaffirming the state’s “commitment” to employment practices that do not discriminate based on “race, color, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry or age.”
