The chronicles of the Wisconsin Marriage Defenders of Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Thursday, February 19, 2009




Sen. Chris Buttars called the gay-rights movement "probably the greatest threat to America," likened gay activists to Muslim radicals and dubbed same-sex relationships "abominations."

Buttars told Cowan the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community doesn't want "equality, they want superiority."

"It's the beginning of the end," the West Jordan Republican said. "Oh, it's worse than that. Sure. Sodom and Gomorrah was localized. This is worldwide."

Buttars used a Senate blog to post his response to the latest outcry, reiterating his belief that "traditional marriage is the foundation of our civilization."

As usual, the true agents of intolerance show their true colors (lavender):

Equality Utah, the advocacy group behind Common Ground, did not demand Buttars' resignation Wednesday nor an apology.

"An apology would not rationalize nor take back his hurtful words and disrespectful attitude," said board chairwoman Stephanie Pappas.

    Chris should resign.

    Once the whole enchilada becomes available for public consumption, the country is gonna be sickened by his camera drunk performance.

    The documentary is coming out in July.

    It's one thing if Chris were to appear in that film in the role of a *former* Utah senator.

    It's another thing entirely if the audience were to be treated to the spectacle of a sitting state senator spewing this bile.

    The choice of reactions is up to the Utah legislature.

    July's audience will either think "good for Utah for cutting this crank loose" or they'll think "only in Utah can a jerk like this keep his job."

    It's one or the other.

    And if it's the latter, it's not like Chris is going to keep his job after July anyway.

    Show a little humility and bow out now, or suffer utter humiliation later.

    It's up to you, Chris.

    Why should he resign? You didn't give any reason except some claim to secret information coming out in July.I think if you really had the goods, you wouldn't keep them so secret.

    Does he not have the right to free speech and to voice his opinion, or do only people who are pro-queer have such rights?
