Advocates for Hispanics and other Utah minorities rallied in the Capitol Rotunda Thursday to protest naming English the official language of Utah. Legislators and representatives of Rep. Wayne Owens, D-Utah, and Salt Lake Mayor Palmer DePaulis joined speakers from ethnic, religious and other organizations in condemning the bill already approved by the House. The protesters said the bill makes Utahns who are not proficient in English second-class citizens. The Senate must now decide whether to approve the bill, which Gov. Norm Bangerter has said he would consider vetoing. The Rev. Donald Hope of St. Patrick's Church told the gathering of more than 100 that if the state must have an official language, it should be "the language of peace, the language of tolerance, the language of respect for the cultural heritage of each citizen of the United States."
