Jason Langlois and Will Bladh are in the early stages of making plans for their summer 2017 wedding, and they dont want their excitement pierced by the pain of being rejected by a venue, florist and photographer who have a legal right in Utah to refuse to serve a gay couple.
Thats why they joined several hundred people Sunday at a gay and lesbian wedding expo in Salt Lake City aimed at connecting couples with businesses who want to make it known theyre open to doing same-sex weddings. [ ]
Utah is one of 29 states where it is legal for businesses to refuse services to same-sex couples, according to the Human Rights Campaign. A proposal to change that law died last week in the Utahs Republican-controlled legislation. There are no estimates of how often it happens, but most gay couples know somebody who has been rejected.

Why do I suspect the purpose of this is to identify businesses that will NOT provide the services so they can be sued into oblivion?
Which states are the 29?
That is exactly what they intend..
As it was in the Days of Lot, so shall it also be in the days of the Coming of the Son of Man.....(paraphrased).
They ate, they drank, they builded, they planted, they married and they gave in marriage. And knew not.....(again, paraphrased from a few verses).
Matthew 20:6-9 King James Version (KJV)
6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
“Why do I suspect the purpose of this is to identify businesses that will NOT provide the services so they can be sued into oblivion?”
Sort of a play on the sting the NYC cops use when they list outstanding warrant scoffs in the paper as Kicks season ticket winners?
Oh, boo hoo! If someone doesn't want your business, you can find others who will happily take your money and serve you, like this venue. Folks who will bake your dang cake, snap your dang pictures and provide you with a dang building, all without using the force of the government, under the banner of "ending discrimination".
That's why America is the greatest dang country on the planet.
Utah? -—when plural marriage ( polygamy) is suppressed it leads to an outbreak of homosexuality ?
Beat me to it.
These are the Days of Lot.
Have they been chaste before the nuptials? /S
I'm sorry that these two queers inherited their pervert disease and I don't wish them the best.
On what grounds? Sexual orientation is not a protected class under Utah anti-discrimination laws. What happened in Oregon could not happen in Utah.
..Utah gay wedding expo connects couples, friendly businesses...
Sounds like a replacement for gay bar hookups.
I think that's the point behind it.
If you get that answer could you let me know please?
I really feel sorry for anyone near these two queers.
Actually I kind of feel sorry for the queers too.
They are in the center of a whirlwind of exploitation that just wants to use them as causes. Whatever mental illness they had might end up being pretty small compared to all the garbage that is going to be heaped on them by their “friends.”
There was a day when there was a de facto detente between “gay” and “normal society.” The “gays” would show their “gayness” in certain expected contexts and nobody went calling the police when they did. They could have kept on “gaying” to the end of time with an arrangement like this, but the devil never left bad enough alone.
This, I believe, is why the story of Sodom stresses “all the men of the city.” It was a huge, mutual social racket that had surpassed the scope of any individual sexual sinning. Stories of the “good old days” of individual trysts were so yesteryear.
Sugar free Haribo Bears in the gay wedding cake....
I would say you are wrong.
Support homosexual so called marriage, then it helps their push for polygamy legalization.
