Get a Wife

The New York Times reports that less than two weeks after a federal judge cleared the way for hundreds of gay couples to marry in Utah, officials of the socially conservative state made an emergency request to the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday asking the high court to put the unions on hold.  Even more disgusting, the state's new attorney general vowed to "spend whatever is necessary to defend the same-sex marriage ban," money that obviously could be better-spent, you know, helping people in need. And these people call themselves religious?

Hmm... methinks that Utah thinks this is 2008 all over again. When rights are given - it is hard to take them away. Perhaps they were not paying attention to what happened to Prop 8? No matter the amount of money or time spent, should they find a way to temporary stop what has now started in UT it will only delay what is now inevitable - equality under the law for Utah's gay citizens.
