Utah’s Reprehensible State Rep. LaVar Christensen Wants Law To Recognize Hetero Marriage As God’s Will

Utah’s State Rep. LaVar Christensen, the man who got the state to ban gay marriage via constitutional amendment, and who’s trying to keep same-sex couples from being able to sign legally binding contracts like power of attorney agreements and wills, isn’t stopping there. He also wants it written into the state law books that a married heterosexual family is a “fundamental unit of society” — and that it has god’s backing.

The language of the bill would state opposite marriages “predate all governments and are supported by and consistent with the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, the Creator and Supreme Judge of the World, affirmed in the nation’s founding Declaration of Independence.” So that’s nice.
