The Mormon church recently formalized their homophobic hate by making gay hate a part of their policy. Children of gay parents (which the church hates) cannot be Mormons unless they also hate their parents and renounce them. If this isn't a case of inciting hatred...I don't know what is. Fortunately...some Mormons with a sense of humanity left the church in a modest yet notable exodus.
Adding to the good news was the election of Salt Lake City's first openly gay mayor. Really...Salt Lake City in all places! While the church was busy institutionalizing their backwardness...citizens marched forward. People underestimate Americans and they underestimate the ability of hateful conservative religious people to change and gain a newer sense of humanism. I'm never more surprised and gratified than when two polar opposite events happen in the same American city or state.
