And of course, we should not be shocked that in the land of Utah and uber-Mormons that a theater has refused to show Brokeback Mountain. Gayle Ruzicka, pres of the conservative Utah Eagle Forum, said not showing the film set an example for the people of Utah: "I just think (pulling the show) tells the young people especially that maybe there is something wrong with this show," she said. Yeah, and believing that Joseph Smith, the Mormon demi-God, had golden plates ascend to Heaven to be w/God shows young people that God likes to eat off of REALLY primo dinnerware.
