It is sad that Utah’s chief executive does not understand the difference between enforcing laws and defending obviously unconstitutional laws in the courts.
I say "obviously unconstitutional" because virtually every judge that has weighed the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans and who are typically well educated in the law, unlike our governor, have found such bans to be unconstitutional. Not defending such bans in the courts is an exercise in good, practical governance, not anarchy.
