Letter: Highland call for uprising full of innuendo

Meanwhile, in Highland, opponents of same-sex marriage have called for an "uprising," repeatedly (and predictably) expressing concerns about what "the homosexuals are shoving ... down our throats." And down their kids' throats, of course.

"It is about the sheriffs now coming out," explained event organizer Cherilyn Eager.

Eager and former Arizona sheriff and outside agitator "Dick" Mack urged their members to rise up. After all, the movement does need to "come from the bottom-up."

Dr. Freud might like a word with you, Ms. Eager.

But don't worry. One can "be all that" and still get married in Utah these days. And rightly so.

Eager's and Mack's claims notwithstanding, the federal government's decision does in fact overrule Utah's unconstitutional law. County clerks, law enforcement personnel, and everyday citizens have no legal basis "to deny same-sex marriage."

That's not a "sad state" we're in. It's a happy one. Positively gay, one might say. Because equal rights means rights for all.

"Utah: Love elevated." That's a pretty great state to be in.
