That's right the tolerant left is now calling Utah a "hate state" after the Mormon church pumped millions of dollars in to get Prop 8 passed in California. "The main focus is going to be going after the Utah brand," he said. "At this point, honestly, we're going to destroy the Utah brand. It is a hate state." OK so does that make California. "At this point, the Californians are the victims and the Mormons are the persecutors," he said. "We had won this until they swept in ... We need to send a message to Utah that they need to stop trying to inflict their way of life on every other state." Really? Did he really just say that? It seems to me that it must be the other way around otherwise wouldn't Prop 8 have failed. I wonder if commercials like this one run by those opposed to prop 8 actually helped to pass the legislation.
Now if gay marriage proponents wanted to boycott California because they banned gay marriage that would make sense. People in California went to the polls and voted to pass this amendment to the State Constitution. So why not boycott California? I can think of several reasons. One much better weather than Utah, come on why would anyone deprive themselves of the California sun when they can just blame the Mormons. Two, I bet none of these people have ever even been to Utah. So basically they're not suffering at all from boycotting the State. Three, most likely the people behind this hated religion before this vote. Finally four, California is a blue state and for the most part gay marriage proponents support what goes on there. Despite the fact they just rejected gay marriage. Utah is a Red State and therefore inherently evil in their minds.
So how are these hateful Mormons responding. Church spokeswoman Kim Farah said in a statement about the temple protests Friday that it is "disturbing" that the church is being singled out for exercising its right to speak up in a free election.
"While those who disagree with our position on Proposition 8 have the right to make their feelings known, it is wrong to target the Church and its sacred places of worship for being part of the democratic process," Farah said.
The church had said in a statement after Tuesday's vote that "no one on any side of the question should be vilified, intimidated, harassed or subject to erroneous information."
Let's punish those Mormons in Utah because people in California voted to ban gay marriage. Maybe I'm confused but who are the bigots again?
