When you care enough to overthrow the very best: BYU group picks staggeringly anti-equality Card

by Jeremy Hooper

The BYU Management Society describes itself like so:

The BYU Management Society is a premier organization for business professionals to network, develop careers, serve communities, and support BYU and the Marriott School. It is a unique, global organization committed to growing moral and ethical leadership throughout the world. Members meet regularly to interact, attend seminars, and hold gala events such as charity golf tournaments and awards banquets. Speakers provide exposure to current events and topics in business and the community.

Tomorrow night, that same society will honor a person who describes American freedom like so:

"If America becomes a place where our children are taken from us by law and forced to attend schools where they are taught that cohabitation is as good as marriage, that motherhood doesn't require a husband or father, and that homosexuality is as valid a choice as heterosexuality for their Orsonscottcard-1future lives, then why in the world should married people continue to accept the authority of such a government?

What these dictator-judges do not seem to understand is that their authority extends only as far as people choose to obey them.

How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.
"
-Writer Orson Scott Card [Mormon Times, 7/24/08]

Yes, that's right: Author, eye-opening anti-equality voice, and National Organization For Marriage board member Orson Scott Card will be receiving a "Distinguished Public Service Award" from the aforementioned LDS leadership society. Because apparently leading citizens in an uprising against any government that accepts LGBT people as part of normalcy's spectrum (i.e. the peaceful kind of government we seek everyday) is considered "moral and ethical" in certain circles? Wow, we really are seeking our moral answers from a different book!

Reasoned LDS digger Chino Blanco has much, much more on this:
