    Hate festival may be a more appropriate name.

    Shame on you, Alan. Take your brand of hatred back to Missouri. I guess you can’t remember that hunting down and killing Mormons was legal there until circa 1978. Pity that you cannot learn from your own history. You are STILL on the wrong side of history… sadly probably always will be.

  3. John Wilkes says:

    How about all SLC gay men show up w/ signs: “I masturbated to Donny’s posters.”?

  4. Pam McLeese says:

    What a sad example you are setting!

  5. Sandy says:

    Way to go Alan and any other person who will stand for Godly morals. Stand by your belief we need more people with in your position to stand for what is right.

    Well, this Mormon for marriage equality will be doing everything I can to get the other LGBT-affirming Mormons to attend the counter-rally, with our banners and signs and rainbow flags.

    Noteworthy: I clicked through and his anti-gay article is a 404 on the site, but the content quoted from it is actually from an extremely anti-gay article…on from 1999. Worse that it appears on the church’s official website and not some ugly website belonging to a crazed member? Probably.

  7. A “hate” rally? Could this possibly be worse? Don’t think so!

    I’m straight and an Osmond fan or was. I understand everyone has a right to the way they feel, well here’s how I feel about this so called “rally” it offends me.

    Every child deserves to have healthcare!!! Your kids deserve to have loving parents too, Alan, too bad you’re a hater!

    So fat face is a high counsel man in the church spewing hate. Oh President Monson, can you please check on this guys status, because if you are a hater you cannot have the priesthood and you need to remove this ass from office of anything… Hello Utah! Hello!??? Fat Pig. I hope he rots in hell.

  11. I too, wonder how a priesthood holder (in good standing?) can host a ‘hate’ rally? I wonder if they will remember the message behind the songs: Love At Home, Love One Another, and I Am A Child Of God? Although, their stand is against GLBT marriage, isn’t the bottom line about love and acceptance. I know and understand the view of the LDS church regarding the wholeness of heterosexual marriage, procreation, eternal salvation etc., however it has been proven that homosexuality is genetic and not a choice. Yes, our sexual urges are controllable hetero or homo sexual, but our desire to love and be loved is a basic human need. It just doesn’t make sense to hate someone, or their choices because they are ‘in love’.

    “I’m a little bit bigotry… I’m a little bit rock and roll”… shame on the Osmonds.

    How long will it take these people to understand that this approach is just not working? It actually makes people angry and it creates schisms in society and among family. It is so terribly divisive that it creates division in the LDS Church as well. Love is the answer people. Authentic, real love and understanding are the key. The greatest thing that opposite sex couples can do for marriage is to be loving, true, faithful and authentic in their familial relationships. Joseph Smith, Jr. said “the truth will cut its own way.” It’s time that you let the truth cut its own way and let the chips fall where they may. Let go and let God in other words.

    The LDS Church’s front and center involvement in Prop 8 was harmful to the Church in many ways. There is a reasons that the Church is now using a healing approach toward families and friends as opposed to this divisive anti-gay approach that is not about love but is about judging and exclusion.

    Anytime someone takes a stand for what they believe/don’t believe, they’re considered a threat and a so called “hater” By reading some of the comments on here, it’s not hard to discern where the real hate is coming

What do you think?
