Letter: Many things could be ‘too controversial’ for a parade
First Published May 16 2014 04:24 pm • Last Updated May 16 2014 04:24 pm

If Mormons Building Bridges is not allowed to have a float in the Days of ’47 Parade because it is "too controversial," then all the Mormon wards, stakes and other Mormon related floats should also not be allowed, as the Mormon church is very "controversial," from whether or not they are a true Christian church to their belief in celestial polygamy, to Elder D. Todd Christofferson issuing marching orders to the Utah Legislature during this last session on Utah liquor laws.

In fact, no religious floats should be allowed from any religion at all as religion is one of the most "controversial" subjects in this nation and state, as well as around the world.

Nor should any political floats be allowed, nor should any holder of public office that has been elected, as this is also an area that is very "controversial."

Or could the true reason be that Mormons Building Bridges has taken a stand against the Mormon church and now the Mormon puppeteers are pulling the strings of their puppets within the organizers of the Days of ’47 Parade in an effort to punish those Mormons who don’t want to go along with the church’s acts against the gay and lesbian community?
