Utah Sheriffs Rally, 'Call for an Uprising' Against Gay Marriage: VIDEO


The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers, Association, a coalition of anti-gay sheriffs and homophobic conservative supporters, held a rally on Saturday billed as a "call for an uprising" against same-sex marriage in Utah, FOX13 reports.

Said Former Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack (above):

“The people of Utah have rights, too, not just the homosexuals. The homosexuals are shoving their agenda down our throats...That’s a lie. That’s an absolute lie [that the federal government's ruling overrules Utah's laws]. We have a right to raise our kids without homosexuals being part of the Boy Scouts, the schools and teachers and doing everything. They can be all that, but don’t shove your agenda down my kid’s throat. We have a right to raise our kids how we want not how you want."

  3. This a**hat does not seem to realize that he has homosexuals in his own family, whether he likes it or not. ALL families have members that are gay - some of which are kids who are being persecuted within their own families. His words and attitude seem to suggest that heterosexuality can be taught but it is inherent just as homosexuality is inherent. So what he is saying is he and others like him, don't want members of their own family being shoved down their throats. Well, a**wipe, we exist and deserve to exist equally and with dignity. No one if forcing you to be gay or endorse gay activity. Just asking for respect, which you obviously have NONE for anyone, but those like yourself. His obvious anger will continue to contribute to his own miserable existence, which I could care less about, but respecting others that are not like you is the AMERICAN way and the HUMAN way. He lacks humanism and maybe that should be a capital offense. Oh and, Mack, the constitution was written to protect EVERYONE, especially those of whom you disagree.

  5. Looks like the "Gray Dawn" episode of Southpark. All we have to do to stop this rebellion is to lock up the Country Kitchen restaurant.

  6. Could he please mention "shoving things down his throat" yet one more time? Sigmund Freud just called and it'll take just one more anti-gay closet case making this analogy to backflip him out of his grave.

  7. wow! I hope no gay person needs to call any of these sheriffs for help! They sound like renegade law officers!

  8. yes, he should mix up the metaphors. perhaps the gays are "shoving things down his throat" AND "shoving things up his a**".

  9. I have no desire to shove anything down this dip-wad's throat!

  10. The Sheriff and the blonde ditzbag blogger better be careful they don't end up the ones in jail.

  11. So, let the reaction begin. Does this qualify as sedition? Is this how red states will react as sensible judges continue to rule that anti-marriage equality is unconstitutional? I am always wary of the right-wing in this country. Remember, they control most governorships. They control a majority of states legislatures. LGBT people and women are always an election or two away from being relegated to fourth-class citizenship, to having our rights taken away. Reaction in America is still a powerful force. Never, ever take anything, especially your civil rights, for granted. There are still enough hateful people in this country to vote into office politicians who could do great harm to our push for civil equality.

  12. Oh these religion fools. Poor religious fools!

  13. The real story is that there ARE many LGBT living in these folks area and they will NOT be protected by the likes of these authorities.

  14. Once again angry old white dudes.
    N\There are no blacks in Utah it seems.
    "The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association" ?

    Have they not even understood the title of their little boys klan ?
    "Constitutional" means upholding the Constitution, even those parts of it that mention equality; the equal right to be a teacher, Bot Scout Leader and have every opportunity and legal standing that an angry old white dude has.
    we need to start going to these crypto-fascist meetings and raising out voices.

    Obey the law and the Judges you illiterate clowns.

  15. I fear for the lack of protection the GLBT in that area will get when this is the sheriffs so forcefully hateful against them.

  18. @ JAMAL49 :

    I'm in total agreement.
    The failure of this bunch of self-proclaimed "Constitutional" Sheriffs to support and uphold the law as interpreted by the judiciary is sedition and all who spoke in support of "rising" up against the constitutional interpretation of the equality protections MUST now be fired - immediately.

    We must never accept laws as defined by self appointed fascists like this bunch of ravers, they are the extreme right wing, excluding from equal protection those whom they dislike.
    We have historic examples of where this leads.

  19. Did you take a good look at that crowd?

    There's not one guy in there any gay guy would come 20 feet near.

  20. Ah, christian love. Or is it muslim love? I can never really tell the two "religions of peace" apart when their adherents start talking.

  21. I'm trying to work out how the rearing of their children enters into the issue. And what exactly it is that's being shoved down their throats.

  22. OLD WHITE BUTTHURT has-beens. Products of the McCarthy era.

    You can not vote for something that is not constitutional. That is why we have checks and balances in the system.

    I hear Saudi Arabia is nice this time of year if you want a country that rules by religion.

    Not ONE SINGLE reason has been given HOW any two men or women getting married in their own pursuit of happiness in their own contract is harming ANYONE.

    These people are supposed to represent law enforcement? Time to retire and make way for a more informed generation.

  23. This is lawlessness by sherriffs. The federal courts are arbiters of what the U.S. Constitution means, and states are not at liberty to violate the U.S. Constitution, even if they passionately want to. Utah has had its day in court, and it will have its day in the Appeals Court and maybe the U.S. Supreme Court. That is the lawful response.

  24. yeah... most of these people seem well beyond "child bearing" years.. don't know why they are so concerned about "their kids" who are likely pushing 40

    Posted by: Homo Genius | Jan 5, 2014 12:08:05 PM

  25. Gee, what about just obeying the law?
