No gay sex please, we’re Mormon
Take the Hot Sweaty Sex Weekend in Utah Challenge:
A movie theater owned by Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller abruptly changed its screening plans and decided not to show the film â€œBrokeback Mountain.â€
The film, an R-rated Western gay romance story, was supposed to open Friday at the Megaplex at Jordan Commons in Sandy, a suburb of Salt Lake City. Instead it was pulled from the schedule.
A message posted at the ticket window read: â€œThere has been a change in booking and we will not be showing â€˜Brokeback Mountain.â€™ We apologize for any inconvenience.â€
Gayle Ruzicka, president of the conservative Utah Eagle Forum, said not showing the film set an example for the people of Utah.
â€œI just think (pulling the show) tells the young people especially that maybe there is something wrong with this show,â€ she said.
As I have said before, I’m as hetero as the next guy (providing of course that he’s, you know, also hetero) but I’m not that hetero…
