Gays Are Ruining Salt Lake City?

My husband came back from church Sunday in a rage. It seems my calling in primary ensures that I miss the gay-bashing and the rather rampant political discussion that occasionally goes on in our ward's Sunday School class. This time it was some sort of something about how all of Salt Lake City's problems are caused be the gay population.

Right. If the gays left, gangs would disappear and the homeless would magically have homes. Puh-lease!

It's a good thing I'm not in Sunday School. I'd have said something and then we'd be outcasts in this ward forever. Josh tried to collect his thoughts (he does, after all, have a gay uncle), but before he could talk about tolerance and love and whatever else, the conversation had moved on to politics. Um. Right. This is not the stuff of a Sunday School lesson.

And to make matters worse, Chris Buttars seems to think that the Salt Lake City ordinance that allows adults to designate one other adult in the household to receive health care benefits and be considered next of kin should be changed in some fashion. After all, it's not just unmarried men and women living together that benefit. Gays do as well. So obviously things need to be changed.

I think my brain is going to explode.

The legislature is in session, which means I will be in a constant state of low-level rage at the complete waste of my tax dollars.

  1. Welcome to Cache Valley, eh? If we could get everyone to be a little more accepting and tolerant of other points of view, this place could truly be special.

    In the meantime, the scenery is good as long as the air is clear.

    Enjoying your blog, BTW. Keep it up!

  2. I do enjoy the scenery. It’s lovely. We can see all the mountains from our home.

    We’ve been here for about two and a half years, but this new ward is much more “interesting” than our old ward was (we recently bought a house).

  3. I don’t miss them at all. Unfortunately, there are even more of them in this new ward. My brand of liberal crazy would make me an outcast for sure if I wasn’t shunted into primary. of course, once half of them find out who’s teaching their children I may be in trouble…
