That was then. Some of us said Amendment backers were lying about their real aims at the time, and now Chris Buttars has proved us right. We all know that Buttars is obsessed with homosexuality. But now he says that Salt Lake City's new registry is contrary to the "spirit" of Amendment 3. Not the wording, mind you; just the undisclosed -- misrepresented -- intent of backers.
It's none of the legislature's business what Salt Lake City chooses to do for its residents. If this bill passes, we had better not hear one word from this legislature about the federal government imposing its will on the state. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
