Sundance Boycott???

According to this E online article, it looks like the No on prop 8 supporters are staging a boycott of the Sundance Film Festival, which is ironically known as being a great supporter of Gay and Lesbian films and filmakers.

According to the article-

Earlier this week, John Aravosis, editor of liberal political blog Americablog, posted a story suggesting the state of Utah be boycotted in order to punish the Mormon Church for its rabid support of Prop 8, the ballot initiative that has now banned same-sex marriages in California.

The Robert Redford-founded not-for-profit Sundance is located in Park City, Utah, and relies on the yearly festival as its major fundraiser to support its programs and services. Next year's run in January is expected to draw at least 50,000 people, according to festival rep Brooks Addicott.

"Unfortunately, Sundance is located in a really bad state," Aravosis said.

This makes sense of course to proponents of gay marriage because I mean come on all of Utah has to be Mormon. According to them Utah is a very bad state which has to have like a 100 percent Mormon population. (In reality, it's around 62%) I've heard they chase anyone out of the state that drinks Coke and is not Mormon. I wonder why Robert Redford hasn't been rode out of town on a rail?
