Old guys in cowboy hats pledging an “uprising” over the “homosexual” “agenda” being shoved “down [their] throats”. 

“The people of Utah have rights, too, not just the homosexuals. The homosexuals are shoving their agenda down our throats,” Former Graham County, Ariz., Sheriff Richard Mack said at the meeting…

…”State sovereignty supercedes what this judge did,” Mack said. “The Governor needs to get some courage and grip.”

Cherilyn Eager, one of the event organizers, said that people need to speak out.

“We need people to stand up and speak out. We need to get noisy. We need some outrage,” she said. “It is about the sheriffs now coming out to protect the people.”

Mack and Eager asked meeting attendees to call their local representatives and ask them to urge clerks to stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

“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,'” Mack said at the meeting.

This should end well.

    I find the statement “The way you take back freedom…” in this context both amusing and ironic.

      Kinda reminiscent of the Tea Partiers (racists) who constantly talk about “Taking our country back” …..from you know…..the black guy in the White House……

    Nothing says freedom like denying equal rights to a targeted group of people based upon your own, personal views.. US

      And don’t forget what the Bayh-bul says too.

  • Russ Andolina

    The fact that Sheriff Mack is so concerned about things going down his throat is not surprising in the slightest.

    What repressed weirdos.

    “Cherilyn Eager”? I’m pretty sure that’s a porn name. And “Down their throats”? I’ve always heard that Utah preferred a more DORSAL port of entry.

    Live and learn.

    If he was in Colorado, I suspect the former Graham County Sheriff would likely be one of the law enforcement officials who selectively chooses not to enforce that state’s gun safety regs abiding by the cracks’ credo of “Government for some, not all.”

    They sure like that thar second amendment but not that super-Macy clause in the actual document.
