Time to Boycott Utah

Posted by libhom Saturday, November 08, 2008

The Mormon Church violated my inalienable rights as an atheist by meddling in politics on California's proposition 8. They have been using the power of the state to shove their racist, sexist, and heterosexist views down the throats of people who do not share their hateful and bigoted faith for years. What have the rest of the people in Utah done to fight against Mormonism?

(sound of crickets chirping)

I will boycott Utah until that state meets the following three conditions.

1) The state legislature must publicly condemn the racism, sexism, and heterosexism of the Mormon Church.

2) The state passes a full set of civil rights laws protecting lesbians, gay, bisexuals, and transgender people.

3) The people of Utah crack down on the Mormons and get those incredibly evil bigots under control.

The hateful and bigoted obsessions of the Mormon Church go beyond same sex marriage to a wide variety of efforts to promote discrimination and violence against anyone who isn't simultaneously heterosexual, white, and male. Until Utah takes strong action against Mormonism, they aren't getting my money.

Remember

Being a member of the Mormon Church is a deliberately racist action.

Being a member of the Mormon Church is a deliberately misogynistic action.

Being a member of the Mormon Church is a deliberately heterosexist action.

Being a member of the Mormon Church is a deliberate act of bigotry and discrimination against atheists.


There is no reason why anyone needs to be a Mormon or a part of any church. Belonging to a hate group like the LDS is going out of one's way to be vicious and bigoted.

  2. Not all Utahns are Mormon. Not all listed Mormons are active in their church (many are in the long process of having their names removed from the records). Not all active Mormons support the campaign of hate their church has been waging.

    We fight constantly, to change laws, to change lawmakers, to change individual minds. There are a lot more losses than victories, but that does not mean that there is no effort.

    As I have said before, boycotting Utah in general will have little to no effect on the Church. A massive boycott of Sundance and the ski resorts will not hurt the Church's finances, but it will likely put hundreds of Salt Lake and Park City residents (most of whom do not belong to the church) out of jobs.

    You and all the others planning to do this are only going to weaken your allies, while missing your enemy almost entirely. Please rethink your plan of action.

  6. renee: You forget that it is impossible to visit Utah without putting money in the bank accounts of the Mormon Nazis. Much of that money will end up in the Nazi Mormon church's bank accounts, to be used to push its racist, misogynistic, heterosexist, and anti-atheist agenda.

    I have two questions for you.

    1) Have you been boycotting Mormon businesses?

    2) Have you ostracized and otherwise socially punished the Mormon Nazis?

    If the answers to both questions are not "Yes," you are in no position to complain.

  8. I think the Morman church should lose their tax-exempt status. There actions were that of a PAC and should have to start paying taxes, since they want to be involved in influencing legislature.

  10. I think the Mormons should definitely lose their tax-exempt status.

  14. From all I know, the Mormon Church is way too powerful. If someone wants to be part of a religion/organization like this, fine, but we all need to watch how powerful these groups become. And the people who belong to these groups need to pull back on their attempts to influence our country. This is a country for all of us, not just those with certain religious beliefs or cultural opinions.

    I'm always in favor of a boycott. If nothing else, it helps us become more aware of the choices we make as individuals and how we are all connected. Change isn't always smooth or painless.

  16. If you're boycotting Mormons, you better avoid Mariott Hotels!
