    I do not get the characterization that Paul Mero, the Sutherland Institute, other conservatives, the governor, and the attorney general are "defending traditional marriage." Traditional marriage is not being challenged or put on trial. There have been no changes in the legal aspects and regulations governing traditional marriage. It is non-traditional marriage that is, in effect, being prosecuted.

    "... the most influential conservative voice in Utah." Ummmm, there is at least one conservative voice in Utah more influential than a think tank most citizens have never heard of. Hint: it's related to this paper.

    I will miss his radio commentary. Best of luck Mr. Mero.

    This is a clear divergence from the historic practices of this institute. However, the magnitude of divergence is not entirely clear at this time. As Rastignac stated when faced with his dilemma, it is best to understand the mechanism at work before making irrevocable decisions.

    Sutherland is a well-funded source of bizarre disinformation. Mr. Mero's departure can only enhance his resume.

    He was ousted...he didn't "step down".
