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.

    As long as we recognize that being a fatass glutton is against God’s will too. How much does this guy weigh? 250, 300 pounds?

    Fine, but if God’s backing can now be put onto laws, then UTAH will need to also have laws inacted that have Allah’s backing now won’t they? And are we only restricted to religions practices now? Will they also be enacting laws that have Thor and Loki’s backing? Zeus?

    Also in the Declaration of Independence:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    I guess the reprehensible representative reads that famous clause to mean that gay people are definitely not equal and their right to the pursuit of happiness is mighty alienable.

    For at least the same reason that elected officials have decided that schoolchildren and naturalized immigrants should possess a working knowledge of US history and civics, I believe that all candidates for elected office should be required to pass a rigorous civics test to prove they understand the laws and doctrines that they’re expected to work with.

    That should filter out dipshits like LaVar Christensen.
