Same-sex marriage in Utah!

So this is interesting…

A federal judge struck down Utah’s shameful same-sex marriage ban today.  Utah is a pretty conservative state an the Mormon Church has a HUGE propaganda campaign running at all times attacking the LGBT community.  Because that is what people should do in Church.  Back to the topic at hand.  Same-sex marriage licenses are currently being distributed but the crazies have already started coming out in protest.  In-fact, the Utah Attorney General Brian Tarbet has actually requested an “Emergency Stay” of the homophobic/bigoted law (ban of same-sex marriage).  

Here is what the moron (probably a closet case) had to say, “The federal district court’s ruling that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right has never been established in any previous case in the 10th Circuit. The state is requesting an emergency stay pending the filing of an appeal.”

So let me get this right.  You let voters in Utah vote on CIVIL rights….and now you are saying that the court didn’t have the right to strike down a law that was discriminatory in nature?! Really?

So back to the 2004 when the anti-gay law was passed.  The crazies claimed that gay-marriage would somehow affect heterosexual marriage and the sanctity of marriage.  With all due respect Utah…please keep your comments to yourself on the sanctity of marriage.  

Anyhow.  This is not the end of this story but this is great progress for now and we LOVE progress 🙂

Congrats to the folks in Utah.  And for the record, I have done a good amount of work in Salt Lake City and there are a lot of very nice open minded “normal” people out there.  It is really too bad when you have crazies in power that give that state such a bad name.
