Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, and president of the Kansas Senate talks to a reporter in her office at the Kansas Statehouse in Topeka, Kan. on Friday, Feb. 14, 2014. The Kansas Senate will not pass a bill in its current form that would prevent lawsuits against someone who refuses, for religious reasons, to provide services to gays and lesbians, Wagle said Friday. Wagle said the bill, which was approved Wednesday in the Kansas House, goes beyond protecting religious freedom. She raised concerns about discrimination and how it could impact businesses that would refuse services to gay couples. "A strong majority of my members support laws that define traditional marriage," she says. "However, my members also don't condone discrimination." (AP Photo/Orlin Wagner) less
