Their worst nightmare, realized... RIP Utah

    "Destroying traditional marriage". It's happening! The most conservative state in the country, by far. Ahh... Utah. Makes Texas look like Berkeley, California, on its most liberal day, during its most liberal hour, at exactly the most liberal minute of its day. With a liberal dose of liberalism sprinkled on by a feminine man in tap shoes, a tutu and wearing a "I love Harvey Fierstein" T-shirt for good measure.

    All across Utah, the homes of straight married couples are burning, as they ward off mobs of newly powerful gays who are there to seize and recruit their children. Jocks are being pulled off of athletic fields, where they are now being told they are free to rape the Chess Club. The women married to (previously) straight men are now flying high over the Utahan cities, worshiping the devil, practicing witchcraft and oh yeah, muff diving. Lots of that! You know. On their brooms. Maybe WITH the brooms. Not sure how that works, but I'm sure they'll tell you. The new teen male pastime there (replacing cow tipping and "Mormon and Moroni Really Were Sailors Who Turned Into Angels. Really. Yes, Really!! We Saw the Golden Plates. Or Our Founder Did. Who We Never Met. But Others Did. But, They Never Saw The Plates Either. Moroni Insisted On That. Well, At Least the Ones Who Didn't Sign the Affidavit Saying They DID See Them, Against Moroni's Wishes, to PROVE Our Faith is Real" classes) and is now blowing others male teens behind Dumpsters, for a hit of pot. Or for a burger. Or phone change... Or maybe just 'cause they like cock.

    Or not!

    With no chaos in **UTAH**, other than long lines of smiling, happy, loving committed couples waiting for marriage licenses there, I believe we have witnessed the right-wing "canary in the coal mine". If there is no chaos in Utah, there won't be chaos anywhere. Ever. So suck it up, gay haters. The war isn't over, but hey, what is going to be their argument now? If Utah didn't fall apart, then it won't fall apart anywhere.

    Change has come to America.

    But the Temple doors remain firmly closed to Adam and Steve taking out their endowments; no gay weddings inside Mormon Temples, thus Heaven on Earth is still safe.

    Mark my words, in 15-20 years, they will have another "revelation" that says gays and lesbians should be accepted within the church.

    Worse nightmare ? Lol. The Feds use to send in troops to massacre Mormons for their beliefs. Read about the massacre of 1857. Once the Mormons see how easy closeted gays can come out then they will come out about their core polygamy belief. Mormons aren't Christians ya know.

    lol, that;s a straight problem and one that's been ongoing since long before anyone ever thought of gay people marrying. If they get the law involved they'll end up with the law decreeing that women can have multiple husbands if men can have multiple wives. Oh, they'd hate that.

    Not going to say you are wrong or right, and that someday it may well come to pass. But I'm not sure if I'll see it in my lifetime.

    Less face it, someday us Bonafide homosexual's will look back and think what was that all about anyways, maybe not in my lifetime. But......it will come to pass.

    One is also blessed, to be in a good place, that none of it is a issue for us now. To us marriage is nothing more than some scarp of paper we do not need.

    Ironically, these 'conservatives' can be so dramatic.

    Gay marriages have been great for Salt Lake City businesses: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/money/57306611-79/sex-jewelers-lake-salt.html.csp

    Flew through there last month, on our way to New Orleans. Bought lunch, then bought coffees and a local newspaper. (Salt Lake Tribune, which we kept) As limited as our contribution to their economy may have been, in light of recent events we are glad to have helped a few airport businesses. Our gay $$ at work! icon_smile.gif

    I wonder how many gay couples are coming in from Idaho, etc., to get hitched....

    What really baffles me in all of this is the poor quality of the legal work on behalf of the state (not that I mind taking a win any way we can get it). When DOMA was briefed and argued, I thought that Paul Clement did his best given the cards he was dealt; the brief was well-written and researched, etc. Big contrast to this case, where not only the brief and argument from the state felt like they were delivered by an intern, but also basic errors in the craft like not asking fir a stay right away, then not addressing the customary criteria for a stay, etc. even if they had a sympathetic judge, he would have had a hard time ruling for them. And it couldn't have been for a lack of money to do the legal work: the Mormon church... err, the State of Utah has the resources to do better than this. Maybe they were so delusional that they thought they would win this no matter what, it perhaps we had some secret help on the inside? Any thoughts?

    People lump together Mormons with conservative Christians. They are vastly different cultures.

    I feel the same with creating GLBT and lumping us all under the one banner, when we are not and never have been one community, and vastly different.

    Are Mormons and conservative Christians vastly different in their opinions on same sex marriage?

    True, the attorneys for the State of Utah displayed extreme incompentence regarding an application for stay - they totally ignored the law.

    It will be interesting to see how Sotomayor (who handles emergency actions from the 10th Circuit) handles their application to the Supremes for an emergency stay. One would expect that Utah would have had a far better chance there if Scalia, or some other Nationalsozialist justice got to hear it instead of her.
