Chris Buttars Is Going To Love This One

It's already a forgone conclusion that Chris Buttars is a homophobe. That much is certain, considering events in recent Utah Legislative sessions. But this year, it's gonna hit real close to home.

On the other side of the Capitol from where Mr. Buttars sits, will be Rep. Christine Johnson, D-Salt Lake City, who will have another active role than just being a member of the Legislature. The lesbian lawmaker announced she's a surrogate mother, carrying a baby for two gay men from Salt Lake City.

Senator Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, says "I do respect any woman who will carry and bear a child for a childless couple ... It's my responsibility to show respect and love for one of God's daughters."

House Speaker David Clark, R-Santa Clara, agrees. "At the end of the day, it's the gift of life" that is important, he said.

The article from the Associated Press closes by saying "...Johnson said she doesn't think her constituents will react negatively to her pregnancy." Then again, her constituents are from the most liberal city in Utah.

Constituents aside, how one Senator in particular reacts is anybody's guess.

Stay tuned.
