Governor asked to apologize for remarks about gays
John Netto of the Utah Pride Center says the governor's comments during his monthly televised news conference Thursday were hurtful.
He told The Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/1mjgsGh ) that to equate same-sex marriage with anarchy is "hate speech," and Herbert needs to be educated about the latest science regarding human sexuality.
Herbert's office didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
Herbert called decisions by Oregon and Pennsylvania leaders to not defend same-sex marriage bans a "tragedy" and the "next step to anarchy."
He also said same-sex marriage isn't the same as interracial marriage and sexual activity involves choices.
