boycott utah?

Supporters of gay marriage (like me) are unhappy about the passage of Proposition 8 in California, and in particular are bitter about the active role of the Mormon church in supporting that ban. So John Aravosis at Americablog.com is proposing a boycott of Utah.

Not everybody in Utah is a Mormon - and even more to the point, not all Mormons agree with the attitude of the leadership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (which apparently provided 80%(!) of the money donated to the Yes (ban) campaign) against gay marriage . So I guess I'd come down against a blanket boycott.

But a boycott of top donors to Prop 8? That sounds like a fine idea. Make 'em pay.

Their is no possible way to spend money in Utah without enriching the Mormon Church, which quite literally is a racist, misogynistic, heterosexist, and anti atheist hate group. Any lgbt person who spends money in Utah is financing his/her oppression.

Come to Santa Fe, we are one of the most gay friendly cities in the world.

We have moutains, skiing, opera, amazing dining, and tons of great museums and shopping.
