Today, something came in the mail that honestly can’t believe was sent to me. A group calling themselves We The People of the State (website is here) is sending out flyers to “Say No to Anti Discrimination Laws” because they believe it furthers the “homosexual movement”.
For those of you that don’t know, Utah has been trying to pass Anti Discrimination Laws to prevent LGBT people from being fired or evicted for simply being who they are.
This groups is sending out hate mail. From their flyer:
"If we don’t stop these bad pieces of legislation, we will be helping the homosexual movement in bullying our children and young adults, giving them the open door they need to solicit and stimulate their minds and telling them that maybe they are gay; using these victims to increase their ranks in the national shift of morality they seek."
This is hate speech. This is wrong. I do not want this sent to my house.
They’re asking Utahans to call their representatives. If you live in Utah, please visit Equality Utah and find out how to contact your representative and get anti discrimination laws SB 100 and SB 99 passed.
If you don’t live in Utah, I’m asking you to call the people that sent this hate mail. Let them know what you think. Call them at 1-801-736-2191 or mail them at 4001 South 700 East Ste 500, SLC UT 84107. Flood their mailbox. Let them know that this kind of speech is not okay.
