Kansas takes a little step toward equal protection under the law.

“Moral disapproval of a group cannot be a legitimate state interest,” said Justice Marla Luckert, writing for the high court.

Thats' nice.

It's a pity that justice tends to move slowly.

“We are very happy that Matthew will soon be getting out of prison. We are sorry there is no way to make up for the extra four years he spent in prison simply because he is gay,” said Limon’s attorney James Esseks, of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Gay and Lesbian Rights Project.

Well, compared to 17 years, he did get lucky. In the State of [Evolution? What evolution?] Kansas, it could have been much worse. But still. Four years robbed from a young life just for bigotry. No word on whether or not Matthew will be allowed to return to living at a group home for the developmentally disabled or not.
