Mayor Rocky Anderson Clarifies
In today's Deseret News, Mayor Anderson clarified his Taliban comment, insisting he wasn't talking about the Mormon Church but about those who question his use of taxpayer dollars to by alcohol and for good measure, those who report it, namely the Deseret News. But the fact that he continues to characterize the policy as the product of a narrow minded religion despite identical policies in existence in arguably progressive western cities without this religion demonstrate that Mayor Anderson isn't fighting a fight for his right to party, He's fighting a culture war against Mormons and the fact that the alleged "Mormon Agents" on the City Council completely rolled over for him and the Church has publicly remained complacent about it Robbed Mayor Anderson of his chance to be a victim of official religious bias. So he put his cross back in his closet and fell back on his old standby. Insults. Like comparing Mormonism to the Taliban. Or blaming his problems on other people (the press).
