Snider on the Great 8 Debate

Yes, we've all been quite serious about the brouhaha between gay rights activists and Mormons in the wake of Proposition 8 passing in California. But every once in a while, one needs a bracing dose of politically-incorrect satire as a reminder that no one has a monopoly on sanctimony.

Our own regular cinema contributor Eric D. Snider -- an active LDS church member, for what it's worth -- has weighed in on the hyperbole, hypocrisy and other assorted absurdities of the current kerfuffle in his current self-Web-published "Snide Remarks" column. It's one of the more bracing, honest -- and funny -- looks at the subject we've seen. (Scott Renshaw)


  1. It's a great column, for what it's worth.

    (And no, my use of that modifier doesn't indicate the preceding clause is untrue as it does in your post. Hahaha.)

  2. yawn.....from a queer reading this drivel

    we've been called MUCH WORSE, by MUCH BETTER

  3. Thanks for sharing. Nail on the head there.

    I am assuming that Anon only read the first paragraph of the Original Article and then gave up before realizing there was satire at play.

    Eric Snider eloquently voices each argument in the proper light.

  4. When someone's FAMILY is attacked and striped of Constitutional Rights under the equal protection funny for some.

    For others it will be a launching of a Human Rights battle unseen for DECADES, and UT is the epicenter for the BLAME for the lies, and blackmail and hate (H8), you spewed in another state's marriage equality issue.

    laugh today....we'll LAUGH LAST!

  5. from the CA Supreme Court's decision
    "From Page 6 of the May 15, 2008 decision:

    "..under this state's Constitution, the constitutionally based right to marry properly must be understood to encompass the core set of basic substantive legal rights and attributes traditionally associated with marriage that are so integral to an individual's liberty and personal autonomy that they may not be eliminated or abrogated by the Legislature or by the electorate through the statutory initiative process."

    THIS IS OVER, and the UT boycott is just BEGINING.

    $40 million down a rat hole, and the perpetual disgust of the LGBT community towards UT = State of H8

  6. UT = State of H8
    CA = State that actually did the voting

  7. Eric

    those pesky foul mouthed homosexuals, think your "humor" is underwhelming.

    and as a man we find you....uh...lacking

  8. BobC

    CA = the supreme court where equal means equal
    UT = State of H8....always

  9. Mr. Snider has no problem using FILTHY VICIOUS slurs of fag and dyke, but can't take the HEAT if an actual fag calls him on his cr*p.


  10. **** NEWS FLASH
    from homosexual agenda

    it's NO MORE mister "nice" fag


    got that eric?...GOOD!

  11. Eric,.....cupcake

    Silencing me from one tiny part of this site, is comparable to my not using one particlar urinal in a STADIUM.
    There is a website I've visited which ranks men by their SIZE. Their HALL of SHAME you can probably figure out has these teeny tiny itsy bitsy...thingies. When you find the eric snider image I'll laugh and laugh and laugh.

  12. just still can't forget, mormons killed 55 innocent women and children, meadow mountain massacre, and now, emotionally kill millions, a new nazi hollocaust. where's the bombing of berlin when u need it?

  13. Famous mormon leader's saying: Slit their throats!

  14. Did anon just prove Godwin was right?'s_Law
