The purpose is to promote visibility for the LGBT community here and begin a dialogue with the community about equality. Right now there is nothing protecting LGBT people from being fired or evicted in St. George based on orientation or sexual identity or gender identity. This is the launch of a campaign for Equality Utah in South Utah to begin looking at anti-discrimination ordinances here.

What makes you think a billboard will do this?

I ask a question and you judge me clueless and nuts. This dialogue is going well don't you think?
Oh well if the dialogue and the billboard do not work try a parade. Be sure to taunt the St George folks enroute. That will make them respect you for sure.
I tried.You just do not seem very nice or willing to dialogue intelligently.

Ashley. There are federal laws for the protections you mention. Personally I don't give a horses patoot what your personal behavior is as long as you don't throw it in my face and that means whichever way you swing. I feel that too many can not distinguish the difference between equality, respect, and acceptance.

I love it when people say "oh ya I don't have a problem wit gays, as long as they don't shove it in my fave" The hell does that mean? Define shoving it in your face? I been around a lot of gay people at school and work, and they don't "shove it in my face."

May I suggest you have your drugs adjusted,you are making no sense whatsoever. You are having hallucinations about magic underwear.That can't be a good thing.
Again,I cannot believe that folks like you actually think you are a good example for the LGBT commmunity. If I did not know Gay/Lesbians I respect,and many do not,YOU certainly would not influence me to look well upon the community.
Let me give you an example. When you contact a company and the person answering the phone is rude,we tend to judge the whole company by that 1 person. People who do not know anyone personally in your community tend to do the same. So when you are criticing others,please look in the mirror and ask yourself what your attitude has done to enhance your cause.

You are one sick puppy.Bet your parents,if you have any,are very proud .My guess is they are to high to notice or if they do have a single brain cell between the two of them,they threw you in the Schyulkill river and you somehow survived.Much to their and the worlds dismay.It is people like you that made it easy to leave Pennsylvania.I was born,educated and at one time loved that state. After several robberies by people like you and the taxes in Pa to keep you inner city groundhogs,really lousy schools,the filth in the cities and spreading to the countryside. Most decent people have left or are leaving or at least are wanting to get out. Congrats,if your goal is to make the world a horrible place to live,you have succeded in doing so in the area surrounding you.

You can't deny the Magic Underwear! But as a coping mechanism for my having pointed out how freeeky you "religious" freeeks are, you could always go baptize a dead Jew.

The Moron Churchcult, imo, like the RCC, is a hate organization. We never said Moron Churchcult members or Catholics can't marry, adopt, serve openly - so we _know_ who the bigots are.

There might be decent, non bigoted Mormons or Catholics around, but that doesn't change what their sick "religious" hierarchies are perpetrating. And a lot of Mormons and Catholics share in the homophobic beliefs of their cult like hierarchies.

I am not LDS or RC and I do not care about your sexual preference but you are an immature,hatefilled human being. Most of the wonderful folks that live around me, when it comes to sinners would say "love the sinner and hate the sin" and they would pray for you. I on the other hand because I am not that good a person,not LDS,and was raised in Pa and used to your kind of mean spirited hate ,will not pray for you and wish that you get in life the same you wish for others.

You seem a little confused about the "religious" practices of the Moron Churchcult, which definitely promotes magic underpants, baptizing of dead Jews and bigotry.

There's lots of sinners, real and then imagined by "religious" freeeks. Yet the homosexually fixated, "religious" cults somehow seem to have a particular jones for sodomy.

As for the golden rule, I never said "religious" freeeks can't marry, adopt, serve openly or be protected from arbitrary discrimination...those "religious" freeeks better hope they don't wind up getting treated as they have treated others.

Okay, you ignorant, passive aggressive bigot? Praiz!

The problem with this shit is their trying to normalize it, as if it were healthy behavior. I'm not saying it 's a choice but obviously something is wrong here. Their wires are crossed if their going for the same sex, hell, we all know how sex works, what the organs are for. Science is catching up looking at this recent research. http://www.nimbios.org/press/FS_homosexuality . And that tranny crap, are you kidding me? That's not a flat out mental illness? Did you know these assholes think they have a right to deceive people? Yes you could end up making out with a dude, mouth full of man spit , man stink on you and "lgbt" advocates think that's just fine because tranny's don't have to "tell you their life story" to date you. This is depravity and disease, simple as that, it should be treated the way any other deformity should, for one thing we should be looking for a cure, who wants to be 10 % of the population with sex habits about as gross as two girls one cup? People need to start looking at things the way they are instead of the bull shit make everybody feel good garbage the libs are pushing.

They want to put up a bill board for equality when they obviously are not equal. They are a small minority of people with a horrible defect. They should be taken pity on, not mistreated , but no one should give the time of day to the nonsense talk about disease and disfigurement being just as normal as anything else. That's a lie.

Hitler took a work of art, an ancient man petroglyph and turned it into one of the most hated symbols on earth to this day. God gave his children a rainbow and the gays turned it into something that is frowned upon anymore. You're considered gay if you have rainbow colors now. The truth is, the rainbow can never be used for what the gay people are doing with it. The rainbow colors are not just for a certain type of people, it's for Gods children and not to be exploited in such a way as the gays are doing. By using the rainbow in such a way, is proof these abnormal's are in fact anything but normal. And everyone knows it, except corrupt politicians who are only looking for a vote, Hell the'll even let you mount your horse for a vote. I meant that sexually.
