Just as Kansas’ reputation for intolerance and foolishness was starting to fade, several lawmakers have stepped forward to stake a new claim to those titles.

State Rep. Randy Garber of Sabetha and a handful of colleagues have introduced two measures involving marriage. The bills are so offensive and wrongheaded that to acknowledge as much is simply stating the obvious.

Indeed, the bills are so ridiculous that there is a danger in giving them any publicity. We’re confident Kansas lawmakers will roundly reject both measures, which are almost certainly unconstitutional.
