Paul Drockton: Salt Lake City Voted Most "Gay" in U.S.
“Salt Lake City was just voted the "Gayest" city in the United States by the Advocate magazine.
The Salt Lake Tribune pointed out that the city also has am openly gay city councilman, Stan Penfold.
Still, many readers criticized the magazine for the factors it cited as being indicative of a strong gay community. The factors include: the presence of a women’s NBA team, semifinalists in recent International Mr Leather gay pageant competitions, the number of chapters of the gay group Imperial Court and the number of teams entered in the Gay Softball World Series.
Those criteria were awarded points, which were then divided by the total population — allowing small towns to compete with big cities like Atlanta and Minneapolis, Minnesota." (Source)
Mormons can thank Mitt Romney and his attempts to "mainstream" (corrupt) their family values. Romney reportedly received a $10,000 donation from the homosexual extremists that call themselves the "Log Cabin Republicans". In return, he did nothing when the Massachusettes Supreme Court voted that State Laws that define marriage as between a man and a woman were unconstitutional. In Massachusettes, Romney was the Republican governor, and had the power to stop the state from becoming the first to endorse homosexual marriage.
The Mormon Church, in a surprise move, helped the Romneyites along by endorsing a Gay Rights ordinance in Salt Lake City. A major leader also reportedly apologized for the Church’s support of Proposition 8 in California, that defined marriage as between a man and a woman. The Church has also ordained openly gay men to Priesthood local leadership positions.
Meanwhile, the Pope had this to say about homosexuality:
"Gay marriage is one of several threats to the traditional family unit that undermines ‘the future of humanity itself’, Pope Benedict XVI warned yesterday.
The pontiff told diplomats from nearly 180 countries that the education of children needed proper ‘settings’ and that ‘pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman.’
The Pope made his comments, some of his strongest yet against gay marriage, during a new year address to the diplomatic corps accredited to the Vatican." (Source)
