Photo: Equal marriage in Utah is like—stepping on a sailor's face?!

by Jeremy Hooper

Check out this sign from an anti-equality rally held last week at the Utah state capitol:

Where to begin? Should we start with the self-centered idea that civil marriage equality "disrespects" anyone's view of God? Maybe with the notion that more freedom means disrespecting the American flag? With the odd specificity of using a sailor as LGBT activists' supposed target? Or perhaps with this choice garish boot, which one is highly unlikely to find chafing the ankle of a marriage equality activist?

Or do we just wonder why, when looking at our love, this militant opposition movement so reliably insists on seeing violence? What's in their hearts? This aggression certainly isn't in ours.
