The City Council of Hutchinson, Kansas just voted to amend a town ordinance which prohibits discrimination in employment (as well as housing and public accommodation) based on race, sex, familial status, disability, religion, age, color, national origin and ancestry.

The amendment adds sexual orientation to the list of protected classes. 

The ordinance covers employers, restaurants and other local businesses, as well as … churches.

However, Fox News reported that “Churches that don’t make their facilities available to the public would not be affected by the measure, and it would not cover same-sex marriages, which are illegal in Kansas.”

The times they are a-changin’!
