Will Salt Lake City host the 2014 Winter Games? Almost certainly not. But could the Utah capital, logistically, host the 2014 Games?
The answers range from no doubt to no chance.
A grass-roots movement is afoot to boycott the Sochi Winter Olympics or move them to another city after Russian President Vladimir Putin in June signed a law banning "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" and giving the government seemingly broad powers to discriminate against gays.
Salt Lake City is on the short list of places that could conceivably host a modern-scale Winter Olympics on a moment's notice.....

Utah is so much more gay-friendly than Russia ... NOT!
Well, there is always Innsbruck, Austria.
China kills baby girls by the thousands....pushes abortion...and by some accounts uses live political prisoners for organ donation...and yet we went there in the Olympics.....
screw that, why aren’t libs tolerant of people who don’t hold their views?!? friggin hypocrites. more americans wish we were back under moral laws rejecting sodomy and lesbianism.
Mormons are a determined lot
Don’t forget...San Fransicko
Why not? The entire games would fit inside the NSA’s illegal eavesdropping backup facility.
Since when should a totally different country like Russia have to conform to the American left?
Yeah! Wasn’t Bruno Austrian?
Stupid LDS slanted article.
Let the Games go on at Sochi and respect local customs.
If the games were held in North Africa the world would respect their local customs.
November 4, 2008?
Texas could do it in 4 months. Top that
We just need a gay olympics. Any new sports ideas??? Its Friday let’r rip.
This has got to be one of the stupidist ideas on record, even for liberals. Geez....
Might as well start getting Detroit ready to host the Olympics.
So, the Olympics will never be held in an Islamic country, then?
..Russia has every right to expect people to obey their laws..”
I do believe I read something written by our very own MSM agreeing that the Muslim’s have the right to ban the reading of Bibles and public praying by our soldiers who are stationed there. Even though we have a volunteer military, the guys really don’t have a choice about being there.
I bet if Russia welcomed gays with open arms and some of our Olympians didn’t want to go because of it, the MSM would be all over them like white on rice.
Selective journalism at its finest. Makes me ill.
