Puny minds in the Utah State Legislature have decided to--yes, they are like this--kill two birds with one stony piece of legislation.

They are going to punish the smokers of the Lord’s tobacco. They want to punish persons who revel in pleasures that the Mormon legislators deny themselves.AND increase tax revenues without touching the free-loading Churchers.

They are so petty, so jealous, so mean of spirit, so vengeful, amd so powerful: they are drenched in the Power of a filthy-rich Church.

They cannot tolerate joy in free persons. They cannot find satisfaction in their self-denial. They must punish, punish, punish. Oh, what a strange religion that punishes all who are not willing to live its stiff-necked way.
