My husband came back from church Sunday in a rage. It seems my calling in primary ensures that I miss the gay-bashing and the rather rampant political discussion that occasionally goes on in our ward's Sunday School class. This time it was some sort of something about how all of Salt Lake City's problems are caused be the gay population.
Right. If the gays left, gangs would disappear and the homeless would magically have homes. Puh-lease!
It's a good thing I'm not in Sunday School. I'd have said something and then we'd be outcasts in this ward forever. Josh tried to collect his thoughts (he does, after all, have a gay uncle), but before he could talk about tolerance and love and whatever else, the conversation had moved on to politics. Um. Right. This is not the stuff of a Sunday School lesson.
And to make matters worse, Chris Buttars seems to think that the Salt Lake City ordinance that allows adults to designate one other adult in the household to receive health care benefits and be considered next of kin should be changed in some fashion. After all, it's not just unmarried men and women living together that benefit. Gays do as well. So obviously things need to be changed.
I think my brain is going to explode.
The legislature is in session, which means I will be in a constant state of low-level rage at the complete waste of my tax dollars.
