I'm no expert, but I do know all of us are screwed, since Mormonism strictly forbids, among other things, gambling.

with all due respect to religions everywhere -

Mormons are whackos - preys on the weakest and most gullible members of society and if you miss an offering they'll come to your door to see if you want to give.

If you wanna get married - then it's def. the right church - since you can't attain highest levels of heaven without being married - easy to push polygamy on a woman when you convince her she won't reach her full God potential unless she's putting out and having babies.

makes me sick, actually - some mormon chicks are HOT

Unless you are intentionally being misleading, the Mormon Church renounced polygamy in the late 1800s as a result of court decisions and as a condition of the admission of Utah into the union (the prophet of the council of 12 had message from God to do it they claim). There are only some very small splinter sects that still practice it.

Mormons renounce Caffiene. As a centrist right republican I do not understand the homophobic attitude. Ostrocizing one sexual orientation for no legitimate reason can draw comparisons to the Germans otrocizing Jews because they are a different religion.

The ambitious politicians in Utah are clearly pursuing a religous agenda, which is ok if that's what the constituents want, however, this law is so clearly unconstitutional it makes Plessy v. Ferguson look logical.

[The] ill-advised legislation, which if passed will cost the state a bundle of money in litigation, is deja vu for the Utah Legislature. Its outcome will be no different than when the Legislature passed a law in the 1980s to regulate the content of subscription cable television programming, which eventually cost Utah taxpayers about $2 million before it was struck down by the courts.
