Gays “Party Crashed” The Osmond Family’s SLC Anti-Gay Hate Rally. Mormon Reporter SHOCKED!

ABC 4 News out of Salt Lake City, Utah is running a truly biased  story that spotlights how a large number gay rights advocates showed up to defend their civil rights at the Osmond Family’s Utah’s anti-gay hatefest on Tuesday.

Gay right advocates crash Utah traditional marriage celebration – by Brian Carlson

Brian CarlsonTuesday’s celebration of traditional family marriage had everything: the Osmonds, the Governor, and hundreds of gay rights party crashers. Needless to say it was not what traditional family supporters expected. “Do you think it makes this thing tense?” asked Reporter Brian Carlson. “In some ways yes, in some ways no,” said Claus Nielsen, traditional family supporter. “It breaks my heart to see some of the signs around her that talk about hate, there’s one I’m looking at right now that says ‘Hate is not a family value,’ and that’s not what this is about, it’s about sharing love but standing up for what we believe,” said Jill Johnson, traditional family supporter. “I don’t believe that man defines marriage, but God defines marriage,” said Cameron Smith, traditional family supporter.

With protesters in every direction, celebrating traditional marriage seemed to take on extra emotion especially during a young speaker’s remarks.

“It takes a mom and a dad to raise a child, so it takes a mom and a dad to raise one,” said Amelia Summerhays, traditional family supporter.

Reporter Brian Carlson asked the organizer of the protest why they crashed the party.

“Why do you have to do it on the night and especially the location where you have traditional family holding their celebration?” Carlson asked.

“Well because often we’re disregarded and we’re seen as invisible and I don’t want us to be invisible anymore,” said Kat Phillpotts, gay rights activist.

They certainly were seen. But even with all the distractions, supporters of traditional marriage said Tuesday’s event was about celebrating the family.

“What we’re celebrating here tonight is marriage between a man and a woman, and that’s one thing regardless of what your stance is that we have in common,” said Nathan Osmond, event performer.

Obviously not only is “Reporter Brian Carlson” so self-important (and such a shitty journalist) that he refers to himself in the third person sense in (TWICE!) he also seems to think that members of the public can “crash” a public event held on public property.

I wonder if Carlson would describe it as “party crashing” when religious folk hatefully, loudly and nastily protest Gay Pride, Gay days at Disney or  anything else they feel like.

“Reporter Brian Carlson” also happens to be Mormon who graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and hobbies include rock climbing, football, drawing, volunteering, skiing, wakeboarding, working out, and watching movies when not cruising the Mormon Temples mens room.

Good ole BYU.

Where Mormon men are idiots and chaste and the sheep are extremely nervous.

  1. Gay people have families too! I have friends that adopted two beautiful children from the foster care program in California that no heterosexual couples wanted due to their son’s health issues related to his biological mother’s drug abuse. Where does their family fit into this scenario? They are giving their kids a chance in life and a hell of a lot of love. So who are the “real Christians” here? Are my friends less Christian than the Osmonds?

  2. Such self righteous people abound in this world. BYU seems to have a department where such behavior is a major field of study. For a sect that covertly covets the biblical marriage custom of multiple wives, they preach well, produce repressed young people and are so impressed with their self-imposed misery they don’t understand why sensible people oppose them.

    Official LDS Porn & Boy Scouts

    by Aaronita Smith

    Wayne Perry, Boy Scouts president, is pro-gay – and, believe it or not, MALE porn is officially part of his religion!
    Scholars, including Mormon ones, know of a hard-core porn sketch in the Mormon-approved “Book of Abraham.”
    This Book is part of the “Pearl of Great Price” which, along with the “Book of Mormon,” is LDS-authorized scripture.
    Figure 7 in Facsimile 2 in “Abraham” shows two beings facing each other. Joseph Smith described them as the “Holy Ghost” and “God” (the Father), the latter showing an erect male sex organ.
    Mormons were offended when Smith’s newspaper published this sketch in 1842, so the phallic part was whited out for more than a century until the “restored” LDS church restored the X-rated drawing in 1981!
    LDS scholars have hushed up the fact that the “Book of Abraham” is not about the biblical Abraham but actually portrays ancient Egyptian documents showing occult obscene sketches.
    Those scholars also know that Smith fraudulently altered them so that he could (blasphemously) portray the Christian trinity as sex fiends in order to promote polygamy among his followers!
    For more info see “Book of Abraham” (Wikipedia). And check out the Tanners’ “Mormonism – Shadow or Reality?” which reproduces the original Egyptian sketches Smith plagiarized and exploited. Also Yahoo or Google “Facts From Mormons (By a Utah Resident),” “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up,” and “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans.”
