Kansas Senate expected to reject bill denying services to gays

By Kevin Murphy KANSAS CITY, Kansas (Reuters) – The Kansas Senate will likely reject a bill approved by the House that would allow groups to refuse certain social services and benefits to same-sex couples on the basis of “sincerely held religious beliefs,” the Senate’s president said. Senator Susan Wagle, a Republican, said the majority of her caucus does not support the bill on the grounds that it may encourage bias. “A strong majority of my members support laws that define traditional marriage, protect religious institutions, and protect individuals from being forced to violate their personal moral values,” Wagle said in statement on Thursday night. Republicans outnumber Democrats 32-8 in the Senate and 92-33 in the House.
