I have been following this issue in Utah since the Shelby ruling on Dec 21.

It is unfortunate (if not disturbing) to continue to see how those who allow themselves to be controlled by mythology are making more desperate and nonsensical arguments as we get closer to marriage equality in Utah.

Those who promote state-sponsored discrimination need to start preparing yourselves accordingly. The legal bigotry in Utah is about to end. Equality under the law is coming. You can not stop it.

At best, the state of Utah can delay the inevitable by introducing stall tactics (as they are doing now, spending millions of tax dollars on arguments that have already been thrown out of court).

Again, I say in another decade or so, people will look back on all this and wonder what the fuss was all about.


@Laura Ann So only the children of gays seek out their biological parents? This couple haven't adopted a child, one of them IS the biological parent but by law only one of them is recognized as a legal parent. Why should they have to find a legal way around something that is just assumed by different sex couples having children?


@Brown I always have to shake my head at people like you that say that different sex couples are the best alternative for a child. Why? After all who are the parents of most gays? Yep different sex couples have gay children. Just because a child is raised by same sex couples doesn't make them gay.
