'Parody marriages': Kansas Republican lawmakers' bills attacks same-sex relationships as fake

Bob Brigham 14 FEB 2019 AT 00:10 ET

Republican legislators in Kansas are continuing to attack same-sex couples despite the United States Supreme Court decision recognizing marriage equality.

“A handful of Kansas lawmakers are backing a bill that labels same-sex marriages ‘parody marriages’ and seeks to stop the state from recognizing them,” The Wichita Eagle reports.

“Another bill would create an ‘elevated marriage’ for straight couples and make divorce more difficult in some cases. That bill also describes same-sex marriages as parody marriages,” the Eagle noted.

The bills were introduced only months after Kansas elected the state’s first openly gay legislators.

“I am very disappointed,” said Rep. Susan Ruiz (D-Shawnee), the state’s first out lesbian in the chamber.

1. Often I'm starting to think being republican is a mental disorder caused by over-active areas in the

brain resulting in paranoid and fearful delusions, and dogmatic beliefs, basically an over-active distorted amygdala.
