Utah senator made headlines with comments saying gays have no morals, are threat to U.S.

SALT LAKE CITY — Hundreds of people held a festival at the Utah Capitol over the weekend in response to state Sen. Chris Buttars’ recent comments about gay people.

Those who attended the Buttars-Palooza event said they weren’t there to protest, but rather to show those outside Utah that not everyone thinks the same as Buttars, who compared gay activists to radical Muslims.

Buttars, R-West Jordan, also told a documentary filmmaker that gay activists are probably the greatest threat to America and that gay people lack morals.

Those at the festival said they wanted to counter any idea that gay activists are dangerous.
