Dear California ...

[Marriage Equity] Apparently, Utah has asked California not to gay-marry people.

Just a friendly request, because, you know Utah would just hate to inadvertently make gay couples feel bad by "forgetting" to send a blender.

Just so California knows: This entity calling itself "Utah" does not speak for all Utahns.

  2. i saw that article online today as well. and my question is...who decides that? is it the attorney general? the legislature? huntsman? who is "utah"?

    i also know the answer to this, but can't help asking why this is necessary. we already have a state amendment outlawing gay marriage, and there is also the convenient fact of the defense of marriage act that makes it so no state has to recognize a gay marriage from another state. so waht is there for utah to figure out that they need all this time until november for? is someone in charge seriously considering recognizing gay couples married in california? because it seems to me that would be the only question that's up in the air. otherwise, we already have a state and a federal law keeping us safe from the gays.

    it's discouraging, to say the least. i, for one, didn't need the reminder that this state hates gays.

    Yeah, Brandon, but guess what? You may speak for Salt Lake City, but you "progressive" snobs DON'T speak for the rest of Utah.

    Particularly Senate District 10! BWA-HA-HA! Chris Buttars rocks, baby!!! Wh-o-o-o-o!!!

    You lefties like democracy as long as it goes your way, but when it doesn't, you like to crawl under the nearest judge's robes.

    Don't like the tone of this discourse? Should have thought about that before you sanctimonious lefties dumped all over Chris Buttars. We were willing to have honest dialog with you until then. Not anymore - you showed your true colours and the time for negotiating is past.

  4. Bite me, "Hard line paleocon." You can't name a single instance in which you creepy 'phobes were ever willing to engage in "honest dialog."

    In fact, the reason the Republican Party is imploding before your very eyes has everything to do with the fact that you wingers think you can have everything your own way. "Reasoned discourse" to a neocon is nothing more than chest-thumping.

    Oh, and as for "black baby" Buttars? He's goin' down. Enjoy him while you can. (Brandon Burt)

    Liberals are making the same mistake with homosexual marriage that was made with abortion.

    Instead of letting the issue work thru the legislative process and letting a public consensus form some dictator judge forces his personal prejudice on society.

    As a result abortion has been a festering wound (and Republican electoral godsend) for 40 years and homosexual marriage is going to become the same.

    dictatorships never last.

    The more oppressive the tyrant the stronger the flame of liberty burns in the hearts of the people! (darn! that's good)

  7. This isn't as big a deal as you're making it. All the letter was saying was "Dude, in five months your state has a referendum that, if it passes, would nullify your decision. In the meantime, nonresident gays will come to your state, get married, then come back and sue us for interstate recognition. So why not hold off just a bit until your situation become clear, one way or the other?"

    Not unreasonable, but the Calis, true to form, ignored it. "My way or the highway."
