  •  It's probably a HOAX (6+ / 0-)
    Please read the entire article, and at least Unreccomend this until the suppposed "Press Conference".

    Yes, a Press Conference for an Organization that doesn't exist.

      to believe?  This is simply the inevitable result of the wave of bigotry and hatred that the right wing has unleashed.

      There is contact info available for their PR guy:
      Paul Jackson
      Public Relations
      Patriots For A Moral Utah
      pauljackson2000@gmail.com

      And their President, Nora Young, is scheduled to be giving the announcement today in the Capitol Rotunda.

        ...try Googling the group and see if you can find anything except for links to this rumor.  

        Assuming it is for real, this is a one or two man show with virtually no money behind it. In other words, a non-event. For my part,   I seriously doubt Paul Jackson and Nora Young even exist.

        •  They may be a small group (0+ / 0-)

          but I do think they're serious.

          We'll see....  has anyone made any wagers?  ;)

        •  And a press conference in the Capitol's Rotunda?! (0+ / 0-)

          I strongly doubt just any old group who wants to can waltz in and hold a press conference in any state's Capitol Rotunda.

          Does NOT pass the sniff test for legitimacy.  In fact seems to directly aim for the "Punkd" factor.

          Walking into a church every Sunday no more makes someone a christian than walking into a garage would make them a car.

      •  If that's the case, (0+ / 0-)

        I'll wait for the Capital Rotunda announcement, with real people and newspapers there.

        Otherwise, a bad, sick joke.

        The most violent element in society is ignorance.

      ...to dirty tricks, but this is the sort of kind that comes back to bite folks' in the ass.  If Paul Jackson (pauljackson2000@gmail.com) is a real person, I'll eat my hat.

      It is definitely a hoax.

      If you're reading this, that means I've broken my New Year's resolution.
