commented on Gay Marriage Is Happening in Utah Right Now
Michael and Seth!!! Close friends of mine, and my employers as of January. They filled out that application last week under the assumption that it would be denied. We're crying tears of joy. This is insane. In a good way. Everyone who lives in Utah "knew" we'd be the 50th state to legalize gay marriage. What a magical thing to be proven wrong.

My third grade son's fieldtrip had to be cancelled this morning because of it -- no docents, and closed bathrooms at their destination. He and his classmates were very disappointed, but I'm more than disappointed: I'm so angry at the pointlessness and posturing.

The guy basically told you the entire current Mormon response to gayness. "We all have a burden and yours just happens to be gayness; being gay isn't a sin, only gay sex (or any gay activity, really) is a sin so never do that and you'll be golden; the best cure for a case of the queers is to get hetero married and have kids -- problem solved!!!" His self-hate goes deep. But there's hope. It'll take a long, long time, but there is hope. It's also not LW's job to help him get there. That's the kind of shit you only figure out after you realize how full of shit the people who feed you this crap are.
