Get out!  Really?  That's actually a surprise!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Is that not surprising?

Several people have speculated that once gay marriage is legal, then polygamy will be legalized, and Salt Lake City will rejoice that their polygamous religious ancestors like Joseph Smith have been vindicated.

Lord have mercy on us and save us.

I've been to most of these cities, and lived a little more than an hour from SF for most of my life. SF is the gayest city in the United States, hands down. God help us if that's what we've got to look forward to from the homosexuality advocates: An America where every city looks like the Castro district. No thank you. (I don't mind SF on the whole, though. A bit too hip and expensive, but still a nice place to visit every so often.)

In 2007 Salt Lake City was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the most vain city in America based on the number of plastic surgeons per 100,000 and their spending habits on cosmetics, which exceed that of cities of similar size.

Yep. Unfortunately Atlanta has a very high abortion rate as well. Lots of homelessness also (not that homelessness is sinful, but the culture that contributes to homelessness is.) Pretty much any sin you can think of is openly visible in Atlanta, and much of it is quite celebrated. I referenced Sodom and Gomorrah simply because it represents unrestrained wickedness and shameless evil.

Lord have mercy on us and save us.

BIBLICALLY, Polygamy was practiced by many religious personages and also not forbidden in scripture.  It was the church that forbade it.   Whether or not one believes in the evolution of the church could dictate whether or not Polygamy is correct.  I'm not sure exactly how I feel about Polygamy, because if I called it sinful and wrong, that would discredit so many in the bible....  

But with that said, gay marriage creeps me out.  All homosexuality is an abomination.    I am shocked it is Salt Lake City.

Still struggling with the New Testament I see.

No, just whether you have correct or incorrect beliefs.

There isn't a single instance of polygamy ending well.  As Christ said "because of your hardness of heart..."

But with that said, gay marriage creeps me out.  All homosexuality is an abomination.    I am shocked it is Salt Lake City.
Then just go to the mormon polygamy compounds.

Relationships between one man and one woman are complex enough. Why make it harder by adding more spouses to the equation?

Yes, it's indeed sad to see what that wonderful city has become. It was great when I was growing up there, but after the Olympics came everything went down hill very rapidly, just as I predicted. It's a completely different city now, and its former laid back Southern charm has been negated by the influx of crass yankees, and yes, the proliferation of sodomites.

In addition to the sodomites ruining society, I would like to add the nefarious onanists, who ceaselessly push their agenda to destroy the sanctity of marriage by the defiling work of their hands. We must stop this army of fourteen-year-old boys before it is too late.

I just watched the Gayest show on TV, Project Runway All Stars.
the gayest part is they take themselves seriously.
You lost me here.

In 2007 Salt Lake City was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the most vain city in America based on the number of plastic surgeons per 100,000 and their spending habits on cosmetics, which exceed that of cities of similar size.

Is there a connection?

Mormons do seem to smile all of the time.....

My ex-stepmother was Mormon for a short period. Though she doesn't like to talk about it, from what I remember women also wear the magic underwear. So they're gay too, I guess?

I don't know...I find their possible sexuality much less disturbing than their theology, but maybe that's just me. What other cult has the pull that they have? Last I heard, the Moonies could not expect to run a viable presidential candidate.

Interesting.  I had heard from a different source that Atlanta had moved to number 1. Maybe they gave it a short run at the top and have recently moved back down.

Is that not surprising?

Several people have speculated that once gay marriage is legal, then polygamy will be legalized
The great minds of our times, no doubt.  ;)
No, lawyers, so that lessens the odds of great minds.  But yes, it's already in the works (dissident Mormons and Muslims take the ban on polygamy as a violation of the first ammendment).  Another-temporary marriage (that has already appeared in court.  If you can redefine the parties, why not the duration?).

you would think that they were performing life or death open heart surgery the way they carry on.  But then I can't quite grasp the concept of looking goofy being the essence of chic.
