Utahns’ recent vote approved medical marijuana. But now that measure has been supplanted by a “compromise” in order to bow to the LDS Church! It matters not that the people have spoken loud and clear.

The First Amendment was written to erect "a wall of separation between church and state." This, of course, is Utah, the only state where "separation of church and state" doesn't apply. The Constitution in Thomas Jeffersons time established this. Now the LDS Church, which came along in the mid-1800s, is telling our legislators what to do to make sure the bill gets watered down enough to make it good for us.
