John Kline supports bill allowing women to be fired for having sex

The Kline-endorsed First Amendment Defense Act would allow employers to fire women who participate in premarital sex.

The Kline-endorsed First Amendment Defense Act would allow employers to fire women who participate in premarital sex.

Rep. John Kline, Minnesota's Most Reprehensible Congressman ™, has never been much of a friend to single moms. Or college students. Or soldiers. Or skinny children, community colleges, special needs kids. Or anyone who’s ever had an amorous thought about a member of the same sex.

Now add women who get pregnant when their IUD fails.

The Burnsville Republican became a cosponsor of the grandly titled "First Amendment Defense Act" on Monday. Introduced by Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), the broadly worded bill is a GOP response to the Supreme Court decision in favor of same-sex marriage.

It's designed to people, companies and schools from backlash because they oppose anything outside "the union of one man and one woman" based on "religious beliefs and moral convictions."

More specifically, it's meant to prevent the feds from denying a business license, withholding Social Security benefits, or revoking tax exempt status to anyone or anything just because they think Jesus doesn’t like gay people.

In essence, it prevents the feds from taking punitive action on bigotry.

If that wasn't Pandora's box enough, the bill also states "that sexual relations are properly reserved" for old-school heterosexual marriage.

So if, say, a single lawyer is impregnated by her yoga teacher, and her law firm believes Jesus wouldn’t be happy about this, she can be fired.
