Utah’s on quite a roll. (SL Tribune)

Summit County has snagged the No. 6 spot on a growing list of Utah cities and counties that protect gay and transgender residents from discrimination.

This week, the Summit County Council voted unanimously, with two members absent but supportive, to pass two ordinances that forbid housing and employment discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

Goshy, if the President of the LDS were to have one of those convenient revelations from God saying gay marriage was okay, the whole state would change over night!

A some people wanted to boycott Sundance Film Festival in Park City (in Summit County). These people voted unanimously.

I just wanna go thank the good people of Summit County.

I think I will take one of those zip-line rides at the Olympic Park. They said it was the steepest in the nation.

Well meaning, but these laws are always a restriction on freedom of association.

Mark so are laws that forbid “No blacks allowed signs” and race seperated drinking fountains and schools – do you support repealing those laws?
