  1. Very recently, the Mormon Church refused to support a Utah bill that would protect gays statewide from discrimination in housing and employment. Yesterday, the Mormon-Church-controlled, overwhelmingly Republican, Utah state legislature killed that bill. The stated reason: anti-discrimination laws for gays are a slippery slope to gay marriage. More broadly, the Mormon Church is saying that it won’t allow LGBTs any legal rights at all in Utah because it may eventually lead to them having full equal rights. What it really means is that the Mormon Church won’t allow LGBTs any legal rights at all in Utah because that might complicate its eventual future wholesale cleansing from society, when they decide that the time is right, of all the LGBTs they haven’t already destroyed through it’s ongoing and current less direct means — as in genocide. The Mormon Church, it’s top leaders and the vast majority of Mormons are really just evil, filthy-rich lackey, bigoted, scapegoating, Nazi pseudo-Christians shoving their crackpot ideology and agenda down — and eventually through — the throats of all who disagree with them.
