After a federal judge ruled that Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, hundreds of gay and lesbian couples began tying the knot.
You may view this as a good thing and progress toward creating a more equal society, but the “The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association” is not going to take this on their knees.
The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association on Saturday organized a meeting in Highland, Utah to call for an uprising and to express their opposition to same-sex marriage in Utah, Fox 13 Now Salt Lake City reported.
“The people of Utah have rights, too, not just the homosexuals. The homosexuals are shoving their agenda down our throats,” Former Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack said at the meeting.
Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage was ruled unconstitutional because it violates the right to equal protection under the law.
Do the so-called Constitutional Sheriffs believe the Constitution should only apply to certain people? Of course they do. And that’s a slippery slope.
The Supreme Court has temporarily stayed the ruling overturning the Utah ban, so I guess no one will be shoving anything down the good Sheriffs’ throats for at least a few more weeks.
