SALT LAKE CITY -- The Utah Attorney General's Office renewed its request for a federal appeals court to halt recognition of same-sex marriage in the state.

In a filing Monday morning, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes' office urged the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver to grant a stay of same-sex marriage recognition -- but said it was prepared to go to the U.S. Supreme Court if it is rejected.

From the filing:

10th Circuit Utah

The federal appeals court could decide at any time on this case, as well as Utah's appeal of a decision that struck down Amendment 3, the state's ban on same-sex marriage.

      Your comment Karl says much more about you than it does about the Mormons. People living an alternate lifestyle accuse others of hate and intolerance, but look at your own comment. It is a classic example of the vary traits you look down your nose at others for. No wonder you can’t find acceptance.

      Why do you uneducated, liberal bigots blame one specific group of people for this? There is far more hate coming from you than the other side. Seems really hypocritical to me how most of you act on this topic.

      No Eric. It’s my understanding that the Mormons believe everyone should have the right to make their own choices. When it comes to drinking and driving, smoking in public places, or the definition of marriage they agree with the majority of Americans.

      Regardless Eric, do you agree with Karl Schneider’s phraseology that “Mor(m)ons keep on sticking their filthy noses into other peoples’ business”? Sounds like hate and bigotry to me.

        Also when your cult religion was founded by some guy looking into a hat, it’s an easy target… I mean, sleeping with a dude makes way more sense that magic glass, hats, and underwear…

        According to Wikipedia there are eighteen alcoholic beverage control (ABC) states where stores are owned and operated exclusively by the state government. As long as your at least 21 here in Utah you can drink until you can’t see straight if that’s what floats your boat.

        I fail to understand your fixation on other people’s underware. Does it have something to do were the alternate lifestyle thing?
