    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!

    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 movement.

    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?

    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.
