The Church has been consistent in its support of traditional marriage while teaching that all people should be treated with respect ... We continue to believe that voters in Utah did the right thing by providing clear direction in the state constitution that marriage should be between a man and a woman and we are hopeful that this view will be validated by a higher court. Official statement issued by Mormon Church leaders following todays ruling on gay marriage in Utah

I wasn’t even aware of this ruling. So it just became legal in Utah?! This is insane overreach on the Judiciary’s part. Where the hell did this judge come from?!
Perverts and political correctness are everywhere. Even in Utah.
Wasn’t the Mormon religion created to avoid traditional marriage and monogamy?
I am just waiting for another WACO to occur. This regime is nuts.
LOL, perverts in Utah.
Next thing you know there will be rumors of polygamy being openly practiced there, and no enforcement from the Mormon government of the state.
I would make a guess that by the end of 2014....a dozen communities will have polygamy in full bloom within Utah. The authorities? They will do nothing. The Feds will step in and find that all this favoritism toward gay marriage goes both ways. By 2015, polygamy moves into California and is challenged in San Francisco as illegal....but it’ll survive the court tests because the door is open wide now.
I’ll predict five and six person marriages (3 guys and 3 gals) by 2016 being seen on a routine basis in California. The tax guys will be a hard position because of the tax structure that we’ve developed over the past hundred years. This will challenge the tax laws and draw an awful lot of discussion in the years to come.
Utah is already a safe refuge for polygamists, it is a part of the culture there.
There is No such thing as legal Gay Marriage. the institution of Marriage was first revealed in Genesis 1:27,and 2:24 in the Law of Moses.Hundreds of years later in Jerusalem a Rabbi named Jesus of Nazareth was confronted by the Pharisees and asked about divorce. As there can be no divorce with Marriage—I remind the reader that two eye witness accounts Mark 10:2-12—and Matthew 19:3-12 tell the same account. and Jesus said unto them (the Pharisees) — Have you not read?
“In the beginning God Created them male and female in the image of God Created He him.And “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his wife. And the two shall become one flesh.” I believe the Sacred Writings affirm the Law of Moses. That Marriage is between a man and a woman —and the two become one flesh. After Jesus was hung on that Roman Cross— the Apostle Paul ,himself a Jew trained a Pharisee-converted to follow Christ on the road to persecute those who followed Jesus. Saul of Tarsus was blinded by the light. Died to sin and was raised up again to become the Apostle Paul.And Paul did not redefine Marriage—but followed the model given by that Rabbi from Nazareth—and by Moses.In American Law James Wilson teaching at the College of Philadelphia on American Law reflected the Biblical model. So I as an American can accept no other
definition of Marriage. I don’t care what the enemy do -or what they call what they do —if it is contrary to Gods Law it is repugnant but those who are perishing are free to perish. As for me I will serve the Lord.And I recognize NO Marriage except that which is reflected in the Sacred Writ:
It’s a federal judge over-ruling a Utah law. Our nation once had a 10th amendment. The federal judiciary has used the 14th amendment to destroy it and pretty much do whatever it wants.
The 14th amendment is also what the ACLU has used to attack Christians and to destroy our public schools—one of the most immoral amendments ever set forth, even if the intents may have been noble.
Gay "marriage" anywhere ain't so.
It’s a federal judge overruling the Utah Constitution.
The amendment passed by 2/3 voter approval.
That’s actually what I meant to post. There’s something hideously wrong when our federal judiciary has the audacity to even accept to hear a case involving a state constitution. The world is upside down.
