Cenk Uygur Denounces Kansas Bill Allowing Religion-Based Discrimination Against Gays: VIDEO

Uygur

As you may have read on Towleroad earlier this week, the Kansas House passed a horrible bill that would allow people, groups, and businesses to discriminate against gay couples based on religious beliefs.

It's one in a recent wave of similar bills that have been introduced in Idaho, Tennessee, Arizona, and federally.

On The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur laid out the details in this deplorable Kansas bill which essentially introduces a "new segregation" in the U.S. There is one bit of hope for Kansas - the Senate president recently suggested that the bill won't have support to pass her chamber.

But we must remain vigilant against this kind of horrible legislation.

Watch and be disgusted, AFTER THE JUMP...

GOProud Leader Says Liberals Talk About Gay Marriage To 'Distract' From Economy: VIDEO

LaSalvia

Jimmy LaSalvia tried last night to explain why he and his allies in GOProud, a gay conservative group, endorsed anti-gay marriage Mitt Romney.

"[Romney] has [in the past] demonstrated that he believes we're a part of America" and the marriage debate is simply a distraction, LaSalvia told The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur.

"I know that you want to talk about this issue and the president wants to talk about this issue because the president's record on jobs and the economy and the debt crisis is indefensible," he said. "And I know that's why all the liberals in Washington and across the country want to talk about issues like gay marriage and contraception and everything else to divert attention from the issues that are facing us all."

Later, while discussing gay foreign policy advisor Richard Grenell leaving Romney's campaign after a conservative firestorm, Uygur declares, "[The Republicans] don't like you, Jimmy; they hate you!"

Watch Uygur and LaSalvia hash it out AFTER THE JUMP.

Said Uygur: "I stopped listening to their advice in April. Why?...I got pulled in, and they told me, it was actually one specific person, the head of MSNBC...I was just in Washington, and people in Washington tell me that they're concerned about your tone..."

Watch: Cenk Uygur on Michele Bachmann's Extreme, Anti-Gay Record

Bachmann_uygur

Cenk Uygur takes on Michele Bachmann's extreme positions on social issues like gays and abortion during her recent trip to Iowa, and going way back during her first days as a Minnesota lawmaker.

Incidentally, Cenk refers to a moment when Bachmann hid in the bushes during a gay rights rally in Minnesota. I went back and dug through my archives to find the post I wrote about it back in April 2005. That was like anti-gay gay boot camp for what she's doing now.

Watch: GOProud's Chris Barron Says Conservatives Support Gays Despite Exodus from CPAC

Barron

MSNBC's Cenk Uygur speaks with GOProud's Chris Barron again about additional defections from CPAC such as NJ Governor Chris Christie and Rep. Jim DeMint (R-SC), asking Barron why GOProud continues to associate with groups that don't like them because they're gay.

Spits Barron: "I know that you hate the fact that there are gay conservatives. I know you can't stand the fact that there is a group of people that have wandered off the liberal plantation, that don't play your victim identity politics."
