Barber throws American majority in frying pan with Buttars
In recent comments, Utah state senator Chris Buttars (R-Obviously) essentially made gays out to be ticking time bombs who are waiting to destroy this nation. With a brush broad enough to coat all of Delaware with one stroke, he made us sound deviant, perverted, promiscuous, militant, and undeserving of both love and fairness. In a world drifting leftward on LGBT issues, Buttars is to the right of Anita Bryant and Mike Huckabee's more conservative love child.

But Matt, you keep telling folks that the world is on the cusp of a Falwellian revival if such suits your "culture war" battle plan. While you try to make us gays seem like grenades waiting to explode, those of us who are trying to de-militarize this debate will gladly step back and watch this nation's anti-gay movement implode.
You know it's getting bad when even the LDS hierarchy can't stomach your unbridled anti-gay comments ...
Mormon-owned, Utah-based TV station KSL has just posted an editorial at KSL.com that begins:
"The brouhaha over recent intemperate remarks by Senator Chris Buttars is more than a distraction, as some of his colleagues contend. It is nothing less than an embarrassment for the man, the institution he represents and the state where he lives."
For once, that sounds about right.
