"As a wise man once said, if you don't want gays to have sex, let them get married."

commenting on the Jan. 3 Public Forum letter, "Same-sex, straight couples indulge in same acts"

"As much as I like the message, I still hate all billboards. They are all visual abominations and a scourge on our landscape. Naturally, they are a source of considerable campaign contributions for our local 'bought and paid for' politicians."

— WineO

commenting on the Jan. 2 sltrib.com article, "Utahns grace Mormon-inspired 'We're Atheists' billboard"

"Richard Nixon and John Swallow both had difficulties with their own electronic recordings and records. I doubt many politicians would accept the public's scrutiny body cams would provide, excluding Anthony Weiner of course."

commenting on the Jan. 3 Tribune editorial, "Law enforcement use of force needs constant training and review"

"The state's 'rational basis' argument for banning same-sex marriage is just as much a 'rational basis' for banning divorce, single-parent households, parenting by unmarried gay couples, and unmarried, single-parent surrogacy. And just as doomed."

— Emerald Twilights

commenting on the Jan. 2 sltrib.com article, "Procreation argument dropped in stay application"

— RushIsRite44

commenting on the Jan. 1 op-ed by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, "New health care benefits begin today for millions"
