No Shades of Gray 

Pin It

Dr. Gregory Clark has played a rather crummy trick on a group of people he clearly despises [“Broken Bridge,” June 14, City Weekly]. The Mormons Building Bridges crowd is obviously not very progressive on the subject of gay rights, but the idea that they would countenance the killing of gays is nasty and absurd.

And yes, the MBB won’t break with their religion and become real proponents of gay rights—is this really a surprise?

The problem with beating up on moderates is that presently you may find that there are no moderates. And maybe that will be fine with Clark—after all, isn’t it easier getting rid of all shades of gray and just having neat, simple black and white?

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
