In an advanced society, such a proposal would be a slam dunk. Ah, but this is Kansas we're speaking of. So instead of an acknowledgment from the council that, yes, duh, LGBT people deserve the same rights under the law as every other American, it's been four months of hemming and hawing and listening to bigots stand up at council meetings and talk about how letting a gay into their church's Friday-night fish fry would be a violation of their First Amendment rights. Or about how changing the ordinance would be a huge burden to the city financially — even though it hasn't been a burden at all to any of the hundreds of other municipalities that have made similar amendments. We wrote about all this here.
Anyway, despite being pushed back several times already, it now looks like a date has been set for the council vote. It'll happen next Monday, July 21.
