what a pointless article! Does anyone think gay activists would have been happy with the decision issued by the CA court?

Mr. Obvious

Mueller called it a "hollow victory. From now on, there's an asterisk next to their marriages."

Actually, there already was.


Utah LGBTs

you deserve better than living in the HATE STATE

come on

What a joke. How does CA now deal with 18,000 people in a special class? They will be the guinea pigs.


Yea you could move to Alabama, Mississippi, or Arkansas and those States will accept all gays with open arms right?
Don't be so short sighted.


We already have marriage equality. Anyone of the age of consent can get married. There is no marriage discrimination. Those wanting to change the definition of marriage, if successful, will further societys decay.

Thank goodness!

Maybe they should go find their own country to rule and corrupt as they see fit ... it would only be a matter of time before God destroyed it like Sodom and Gomorrah.


OK so bigotry has won again, but don't believe for one second that the fight is over for equality in the state of Utah. Once upon a time the same haters would have voted for a ban on inter-racial unions but look where we are today. It will take time but I am positive that love will win in the end. My husband and I will join hundreds tonight in SLC at the state capitol 6:30 to show our support for our wonderful gay brothers and sisters.


To: Anonymous | 1:03 p.m. May 26, 2009:
You discount the role of romantic love and affection or physical attraction in contributing to a meaningful (not sham) marriage. Are you comfortable with cultures that practice arranged marriages? Would you be happy in a marriage to a spouse whom your parents picked out for you, with no choice in the matter? That is the position you put the state in when you have the government preclude certain marriages (i.e. same-sex) based on love. Obviously a gay man and a lesbian can now legally marry each other, but what would be the point? They could each have extramarital affairs with people they truly were attracted to, but that undermines the whole idea of marriage.


The people have voted, now shut up or leave. Those that support gay marriage are parasites looking for ways to bend societies values.

The Rock

Abe Lincoln used to ask a question:

If you called a dogs tail a leg, how many legs would a dog have.

When people said "five" Abe would reply; "No, callign a tail a leg does not make it one."

Calling a same sex relationship a marriage doesn't make it one either.


America is the greatest country in the world. Proven again by the majority.


Dear Scarlet,

I just love the way gays and gay supporters always try to claim that if you disagree with them it's either because you hate them or you're afraid of them. They clearly just can't handle honest disagreement.

And, BTW, Marriage is NOT a right. It is a privilege. That's why you have to get a license.

re: Scarlet

Have a good time exercising your "Constitutional Rights". I'll be exercising mine on the other side of the fence our wonderful non-gay brothers and sisters.

Agreed with Scarlet

I agree with Scarlet. The fight is indeed not over. Bigotry may reign supreme now, but slaves, women, minorities, and our ancestors that fought in the American Revolution all fought for their rights, and won.

Gays will fight to the end for their rights--and with the help of fellow Americans who believe in equality for all, we will achieve equal rights for all when it comes to marrying according to the dictates of their own conscience.

Right On!

Now there's a headline we'll keep seeing!


I am so sad that you just referred to Abe Lincoln.... Do you know anything about his opposition to discrimination??? I am so sad to see that those that claim to, "judge not that ye be not judged", are so openly judging. I know my creator and I will answer to him when my time comes. I will stand proud that I treated all people as equals! You don't have to agree with all that people believe but you do need to respect the right for each of us to make our own decisions, the same way you want others to respect you. Maybe when something you believe in is in jeopardy, you will understand and hope for others to respect you and your opinions. Until then, equality for all~


No matter what you call a couple of the same sex it can never be a marriage. For a marriage is only a marriage after the female gives berth to a child sired in a natural way. The is the rules of husbandry set fore by the genetic engineree of the human race. Set yourselves seperate form yur parents and cleave to your spouse, going forth to mulitply.


Oh for heaven's sake, the voters voted!! The majority decided! And they did it in CALIFORNIA!! What in the world good does it do to protest, at this late date, at the UTAH state Capitol?? Go to CALIFORNIA and protest!

Y'all are just mad because you didn't get your way, and now you're throwing a temper tantrum like a two-year-old.

Fine, go exercize your Constitutional right to protest, but remember that the voters were exercizing their Constitutional rights as well.

Don'tcha just HATE it when the other guys (you know, the people you don't agree with) have rights, too?

Hot Topic

This really has been an issue that has really good marketing on one side. This is not an issue of equality, it is an issue of CONTROL.

Just the fact that one justice voted against the majority vote of the people with no basis for an argument is further evidence of that.

This country is based upon freedom, not control. Were it not so, we may just be supporting King Washington XXIV.

May we be blessed with continued FREEDOM in America.
