UTAH: Former County Sheriff Calls For Uprising Against Same-Sex Marriage

"The people of Utah have rights, too, not just the homosexuals. The homosexuals are shoving their agenda down our throats. 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. The way you take back freedom in America is one county at a time. The sheriffs need to defend the county clerks in saying, ‘No, we’re not going to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals.’" - Former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack, who yesterday led a meeting of law enforcement members in calling for an "uprising" against same-sex marriage in Utah. There is video at the link.

More about the meeting from the Mormon Church-owned Deseret News:
Mack said the U.S. Constitution was written to protect God-given, innate rights. "You're never going to convince us that homosexual marriage is one of those innate, God-given rights. It's not," he said. "If you read the Bible, you will plainly and simply see that it's not." His comments about gay marriage drew loud applause from about 200 people crammed into the Highland Community Center. They came during an hourlong speech focused on states' rights. Mack, former sheriff in Graham County, Ariz., created the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association about three years ago to "take back America county by county, state by state." Speaking of the gay community he said parents have rights and "we choose not to teach that to our children and we don't want you teaching it to them either. Don't shove your agenda in our faces or down our throats. We don't want any more of your gay appreciation parades."
