Planning a Vacation to Utah?

If you are planning a trip to Utah, you might want to think twice about visiting the city of Kanab. The Kanab's City Council unanimously adopted a nonbinding resolution last month that calls marriage between a man and woman "ordained of God" and urges homes to be open to a "full quiver of children." It also encourages young women to become "wives, homemakers and mothers" and young men to grow into "husbands, home builders and fathers." This document has been warmly received by some people, like the Rev. Doug Hounshell, who:

thanks God for a community that doesn't think it has to be gay-friendly. We don't mean to be mean-spirited," says Hounshell, pastor of Cliffview Chapel Baptist Church in Kanab. "But the message to a homosexual might be that this is probably not the friendliest town for that type of thing.
