The actor Robert Redford has supported left-wing causes for decades, and his Sundance Film Festival is a stalwart supporter of independent films, many with gay themes. Nonetheless, homosexual activists are calling for a boycott of Sundance. Why? Because it's in Utah, where a lot of Mormons live, and Mormons are the source of all evil. Not only did they support California's Proposition 8, . . . but, according to the gay-Left blogger John Aravosis, "they quite literally steal your soul at death and force you to convert to their religion." That's why "if you go to Utah, you're funding hate." Now, boycotting an entire state because some of its residents have the wrong views is narrow-minded enough--but if that's your modus operandi, why not boycott the state that actually voted down gay marriage, namely California?
