A gay couple says they were detained by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints security guards after one man kissed another on the cheek Thursday on Main Street Plaza.
“They targeted us,” said Matt Aune, 28. “We weren’t doing anything inappropriate or illegal, or anything most people would consider inappropriate for any other couple.”
The pair stood their ground rather than move on, as apparently the security guards asked them to do. They were subsequently roughed up handcuffed, and given a trespassing citation by the later-arriving police. Does anyone doubt that they were confronted by security because they’re gay? No. But here’s the rub: Main Street Plaza is now, apparently, private property.
The LDS may have
lied said that they support civil unions for their beloved defective gay brethren, but apparently they expect those unions to be affection-free. The LDS should be deeply ashamed for pulling muscle over something so beautiful as a carefree peck on the cheek.
