This, from The Wizard of Oz, is fourth among most quoted movie lines.
Today it refers to a clash between religious-based prejudices and gay people. It involves the city of Hutchinson, Kansas.
Hutchinson, population about 40,000, has a Human Relations Commission which recently made a recommendation to the City Council for a Human Relations Ordinance. The idea was to make the City a good place for people of all races, creeds and gender orientations.
Like everywhere else, churches in Hutchinson rent of their meeting rooms and sanctuaries for money to various groups who can use them. The Ordinance declares if churches are going to be in the business of renting out space, they must treat all members of the public equally.
This brought the predictable outrage from some, but not all, churches. The churches that consider homosexuality a sin do not want gays in their buildings.
A peculiar argument was made against the Ordinance by someone from the Kansas Family Policy Council. Instead of just quoting the usual bits of scripture, this fellow said they were opposed to the Ordinance because it would result in sexual predators lurking in the rest rooms preying on children.
This man needs to read the monthly publication of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Every month, someone reports all the cases found in the U. S. where clergy are involved in pedophilia, rape and other sex crimes. There are many new ones each month.
This is a Kansas pot calling the kettle black.
