Herbert embarrassing
First Published May 27 2014 04:44 pm • Last Updated May 27 2014 04:56 pm

It’s downright embarrassing having a governor like Gary Herbert. He is quoted in comparing interracial marriage to same sex marriage thusly:

"What you choose to do with your sexual orientation is different in my mind than what you’re born with as far as your race," Herbert said. He added later: "What your attraction may be is something else, but how you act upon those impulses is a choice."

It’s kind of like saying if you’re born black you can’t help it, but don’t ask to sit in a white restaurant!
