Buttars is low-hanging fruit

He makes it too darn easy. He just opens his mouth, and we have ALL KINDS OF STUFF to write about. Give a listen.


Of course, I have to watch this documentary when it comes out. I just want to see him saying:

They’re the meanest buggers I’ve ever seen.

(Did he really say buggers?)

What is the morals of a gay person? You can’t answer that because anything goes.

They’re probably the greatest threat to America going down I know of.

Um. Threat to what?

Earlier today there was a video posted on YouTube, part of the Cowen interview, in which Buttars brings up the topic of “Pig Sex”. The video has been taken down now, but I did see it before it was removed. Buttars says gays engage in pig sex but he refuses to say on camera what that is. The interviewer looks it up and reads the definition. Buttars is dissatisfied as the definition is not explicit enough to suit him. Here‘s the definition from Urban Dictionary which sounds like the one read by the interviewer.

(UPDATE: Video is back up, so here it is)

And finally, I have to ask what so many others are asking tonight: Why doth Buttars protest so much?

Trapped in a Mormon Gulag

This is the hottest story on DailyKos today.  Its about the West Ridge Academy (a.k.a. Boys Ranch) in West Jordan, Utah.

Go there and read it, especially the comments.  The average person cannot believe this nightmare is happening today.  Is it?  Knowing Chris Buttars…

Trapped in a Mormon Gulag

This story is about Eric Norwood’s personal experiences at a place called The Utah Boys Ranch, which models itself as a “tough-love” prep-school, but while Eric was there, he witnessed some unbelievable atrocities. It is a Mormon-funded and staffed facility, and religious indoctrination is a fundamental aspect of the school. There was sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, suicide, staff corruption, and escape. A major Utah political figure, Senator Chris Buttars, was the executive director while Eric was there.

This is Eric’s story:

Happy HOLIDAYS, Senator Buttars, and I mean that

What pressing matters will take up the valuable time of our busy legislature this session? Taxes? Schools? Roads?

How about war? As in, the war on Christmas.

State Senator Chris Buttars is declaring a war on the ‘War on Christmas’. He’s sponsoring a resolution encouraging retailers to embrace Christmas in their promotions rather than the generic “holidays.”

Sen. Chris Buttars wants Utah’s Legislature to declare its opposition to the “war on Christmas.” [snip]

“It would encourage the use of ‘Merry Christmas,'” Buttars said of the non-binding statement that is still being drafted. “I’m sick of the Christmas wars — we’re a Christian nation and ought to use the word.” [snip]

Now you’re expecting me to make the obvious comment on the “we’re a Christian nation” thing, right? Well, I don’t think I need to. The stupidity of that statement stands all on its own.

Who else thinks it’s a good idea?

“I think Christmas is a wonderful holiday,” said Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo. [snip]

While Bramble believes that America is grounded in Judeo-Christian beliefs, part of that thinking involves tolerance of other faiths, he said.

“I don’t find it offensive when someone says ‘Happy Holidays,’ ” Bramble added. “What is offensive is if we’re embarrassed to say ‘Merry Christmas.’ “

I’ll be blunt. It pisses me off that our legislators waste time on such ridiculous non-issues. If they are so lacking in serious issues as to have to resort to this, then maybe we can cut back on the legislative session and save some taxpayer money. Yeah, right.

In fact, is pisses me off that I wasted time writing about this! Bah, humbug!
