Letter: Churches, not taxpayers, should pay for gay marriage appeal
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Apparently the Attorney General's Office doesn't have a Don Quioxite brave enough (or foolish enough) to challenge Judge Robert Shelby's ruling legalizing gay marriage. It has to hire outside counsel ("Utah seeks outside counsel in request for gay-marriage stay," Tribune, Dec. 26).

How much it will cost? Not saying. Where will the money come from? Probably from education funds.

Better idea! Let the LDS and Catholic churches pay for it. It is their protest. I'm sure their members would have their tithing pay for it, rather than their taxes.

I'm certain I don't want my taxes paying for another joust with windmills by the state.
