A whole new world?

I was recently greatly encouraged in believing in my fellow Americans.  After reading about the Kansas state House passing a bill that would have institutionalized many, many kinds of discrimination, as long as they were deployed in defense of a "sincere religious conviction", I was fairly horrified.

But I was greatly encouraged when, a day or two later, the state Senate decided not to even take up the bill, because the reaction of their constituents was hugely negative.  Congratulations, Kansas; you still need to learn the difference between science and religion, but at least you won't go so far as to institutionalize bigotry in the name of religion.
