Religious Freedom, Homosexuality, and Bigotry

So, opponents of Kansas’ RFRA law say that it opens the door for private citizens to sue any government agency for NOT discriminating against people based on “sexual orientation”.

Hm.

First, that’s not a good use of the word “discrimination”. I’m sure it’s in the dictionary that way now, but what you really mean is “bigotry”. “Discrimination” is a positive quality; it is why I do not, for instance, eat rotten food. To “discriminate against” someone, requires that that person actually be inferior in some way to another (so it is expected, for instance, that employers DO discriminate based on ability). Practicing homosexual behavior does not, by itself, make a person an inferior hiring prospect.

As for being bigoted against “sexual orientation”, that’s a simple (if not easy) fix. “Sexual orientation”, just as race, is an artificial and valueless term created to drive a specific political agenda by dividing people against each other. Stop classifying people into “races”, and racism becomes impossible. Same principle; stop pretending that gender is somehow fluid and infinitely categorizable every time someone has an urge, or makes a choice, to act against human biological nature. Once you realize that people are just people, bigotry ceases to exist.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled rants about how much I “h8 teh gheys!”
