George Takei Lashes Out At Utah Governor Over Same-Sex Marriage

​ ​George Takei is pulling no punches!  The Star Trek star, who married his husband, Brad Altman, in California in 2008, lashed out at Utah Governor Gary Herbert during an interview for the Sundance premiere of his documentary, To Be Takei.

"Why is your Governor Gary Herbert so mean? He consciously and mean-spiritedly refused to recognize the marriages that already happened. I’m stunned by his stupidity. Your governor seems to believe in governing by hysteria.

"Your Governor Herbert is consciously bringing harm to 2,600 citizens of Utah. That’s mean-spirited. He didn’t have to do that. Your governor is trying to put toothpaste back in the tube."

Tell us how you really feel, George!!
