Look at the pictures posted on the facebook page for the Utah Pride Festival.
I found many photos to be anything but family friendly. No need
vilify this movement. They have posted what they are all about, in full color.
It isn't about love, or family, or equality. It is about... something that
will get my post denied.
The families of all kinds that suffer due to this continued vilification of all
things not "normal". I don't know of many marriages or families
that meet perfect status. Single parents, divorced parents and all others must
be getting tired of the stain upon their lives because they are not in perfect
heterosexual marriages. It defies logic.
I couldn't help but notice that the author, Dennis Romboy, has provided a
clear recitation of facts, a concise recap of the legal cases at issue, and a
fairly balanced, unsensational presentation of the story.Considering
how often the DN has skewed articles to favor emphasis on Church doctrine, I
find this straight journalistic approach noteworthy and worthy of approbation.
Keep up the good work.Of course, the story being reported on here,
about how the State will never give up its fight to subjugate and repress its
gay citizenry, is a disgraceful one, little more than elected officials
pandering to the basest part of the Republican base to promote their own
electoral fortunes. It's becoming clearer and clearer that the Governor
won't win this case. Utah's elected leaders have no more claim on the
wheels of justice than any other state's and as the case law develops, this
form of institutional discrimination is becoming impossible to legally justify.
I think the 'harm' that the pro-gay marriage crowd says doesn't
exist won't be truly manifest fully for about 50 years or so. By then
society will find itself in ruin, wondering what happened. Fortunately for most
of the supporters of this movement, they will be dead and gone. Unfortunately
for those that are around, they will be forced to deal with the problem left for
them by our generation. Sad.
I find it incredible the state attorney can call this "a novel, important
legal issue affecting the lives of thousands of Utahns" and actually be the
one fighting to continue the oppression of the lives of thousands. That he
recognizes the harm and STILL wants to the state to fight is________ (insert any
word out of hundreds to mean he doesn't care about all human beings).
Putting the legalese aside, Utah is having a whale of a time showing that
SSM's are causing the state any harm.And we will eventually
realize that stable gay unions are actually GOOD for the state!
@LovelyDeseret 9:09 p.m. June 9, 2014 We will legally fight to
protect marriage, the family, and democracy as long as we can. This is too
important to the future of America to stop.Yes marriage, the family
and our Republic should be protected an defended as strongly as they can.
That's why it's so important that the decisions by Judge Shelby an
Judge Kimball be sustained. Marriages, families and our Constitution will be
impaired if those judgments are overturned.
Less then 10 years from now Utah will be known as the Mississippi of the modern
day gay rights movement. All of it's citizens should be overwhelming proud.
The same pride those from Mississippi feel about the 1960's civil rights
truth in all its forms:"Utah isn't it about time you recognize
gay people as families too?"Utah isn't it about time you
recognize polygamists as families too?
We will legally fight to protect marriage, the family, and democracy as long as
we can. This is too important to the future of America to stop.
Is anyone else as tired of this religious stubbornness as I am?
The seeking of the stay is petty and vindictive. The appeal itself is no better.
Utah isn't it about time you recognize gay people as families too?
