    "blatently unconstitutional laws"

    I think you need to figure out how to spell blatantly first..then come back and then come back and discuss why this law is unconstitutional.

    Here's the thing there are plenty of places in the US where you are allowed to regulate alcohol and sexual viewing establishments.

    Brewvies showed a film that in many aspects would be considered pornographic. Some people just want their porn and eat it too.

    Deadpool may be crass and crude, but I don't think a reasonable adult would call it pornography or obscene; which was the intent of the law

    Getting the law changed is exactly what Brewvies is seeking to do. When the state of Utah passes these blatently unconstitutional laws minority groups only have one avenue to regain thier rights and sadly that is to sue to get the law overturned.

    if Breviews felt the law was unconstitutional, why did they not sue the first time they were cited?

    "over zealous judgmental authoritarian type personalities" - like those who are forcing us all to buy health insurance, whether we want it or not? like those who force photographers to shoot "gay weddings" whether it violates their conscience or not? same for caterers, florists, djs, etc? the left has NO ROOM to talk about over zealous judgmental authoritarian types.

    Brewies believes the law is unconstitutional. It wouldn't be the first time Utah passed and unconstitutional law so let's see how this plays out. In any case, anyone who cares about limited government and personal freedom is hoping they are successful in their defense.

    Here's the thing, this law was never intended to be used this way, and some over zealous judgmental authoritarian type personalities figured a new way to treat adults like children.

    How embarrassing that Utah's leader's treat the citizens as 12 year olds.

    Here's the thing: Brewvies knew the law. They had been sighted previously for the same thing. Follow the law and you won't have any problems. If you don't like the law, seek to get it changed. Don't go crying because you are being punished for breaking the law.

    And Utah makes national news again. For all the wrong reasons.
