The Sin Of Sexual Impurity In Utah And Russia


Apparently one of the evolving tenets of the Mormon satanic cult is hysterical homophobia. "Homosexuality Is Sin: Next to the crime of murder comes the sin of sexual impurity," blares a typical Mormon propaganda piece from a few years ago. Earlier, Ernest Wilkinson, president of BYU, addressed the student body with these ringing words of all-American inspiration: "We do not intend to admit to our campus any homosexuals. If any of you have this tendency and have not completely abandoned it, may I suggest that you leave the university immediately after this assembly.... We do not want others on this campus to be contaminated by your presence."

Utah Governor Jon Huntsman is certainly not gay. Once touted as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, he has had to flee to China after proposing that gays in Utah be treated as separate-but-almost-equal (civil unions), which was too much for the hate mongering Mormon cultists, who claim the final word on gays is "abomination" in the eyes of their comic book "religion."

I only bring this up because the Mormons aren't the only contemptible bigots in the news today. Religious bigotry and the kind of authoritarian statist bigotry that dominates Russia today are very compatable. And like the Mormons, the Russian authoritarians who demand conformity, hate gays-- and, these days, even condemn gays in religionist terms! Moscow's extreme right-wing mayor, Yuri Luzkhov, claims gays are "satanic." Twenty gay people were hauled off to jail from a peacful rally. It must have seemed positively heavenly in Salt Lake City.

Needless to say, the Republican Party doesn't want to be left out of any opportunity for demagoguery, hatred and divisiveness. So here we have that brilliant GOP chess master, Michael Steele suggesting the GOP turn marriage equality into an anti-business issue. Even though all the states that have decriminalized gay marriage say it's been GREAT for generating business revenues, Steele, touting his Republican hip-hop makeover, claims it will hurt businesses that have to spend money on health care costs.
Steele said that was just an example of how the party can retool its message to appeal to young voters and minorities without sacrificing core conservative principles. Steele said he used the argument weeks ago while chatting on a flight with a college student who described herself as fiscally conservative but socially liberal on issues like gay marriage... "You don't have to wear your pants cut down here or the big bling,'' he said.
