    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    All I had ever heard about Utah was about Mormons and how religious it was.

    The first time I drove into Utah and saw the beehive on the side of the Highway Patrol cars, I thought it was weird.

    Since when did a beehive become a religious symbol.

    I have a question for you:
    Let's assume that your premise is accurate.

    Saying that someone is running away is not the same as them actually running away.

    So you tell me -- if marriage is a fundamental right which can't be denied on arbitrary grounds, and people have the freedom to decide whom to love and whom to make families with, and these are fundamental, constitutional rights, on what grounds to you deny polyamory, group marriages, or any other arrangement between consenting adults?

    Be specific.
    Well hell's bells, Redress, I thought you wanted to play.

    A man that has to put up with more than one wife will go insane and possibly shoot up a school house. Restricting a man to one wife is definitely in the interest of public safety.

    It's not really a religious symbol. It's a reference to the fact that when the President of the LDS Church at the time led an expedition out to that part of the continent and there was a lot of LDS settlement, it was referred to by the Mormons as Deseret, which in the Book of Mormon translated to "honeybee." A large provisional state which included Utah was established by the Mormons and survived for 2 years without achieving recognition by the US government; the name of that provisional state was Deseret.

    Ergo, the beehive.

    The beehive is symbolic in Freemasonry. Representing, simply put, the industry of the working man symbolic as to possible accomplishments when working in social harmony. Many Morman symbolism's are borrowed from Freemasonry. Whereas, Freemasonry view them in a symbolic and allegoric way, Joseph Smith apparently took them to the level of a religion.

    Well I didn't know any of that. Thanks for the info though.

    Seeing the beehive made me realize there might be more to Utah than just Mormons, and there was. Lots of rusty old cars.
