Utah Bar Broke Liquor Laws by Screening "The Hangover: Part II"

Posted: September 30th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Utah Bar Broke Liquor Laws by Screening "The Hangover: Part II"Submit Comment
Brewviews Cinema Pub in Salt Lake City was just fined $1,627 by Utah's liquor-control commissioners for screening "The Hangover: Part II" inside the bar. The crime was showing a film that contains sex acts and full frontal nudity. The penalty was $400 more than a penalty a restaurant would receive for serving alcohol to a minor.

The decision to fine the bar was based on a complaint by a strip club that it had been cited for sexually explicit violations while Brewvies was getting away with showing equally explicit films. "We had no choice but to cite Brewvies because liquor is served there," said liquor enforcement spokesperson Dwayne Baird.Assistant Attorney General Sheila Page acknowledged that regular Salt Lake City theaters played the film during its theatrical run, but those theaters are alcohol-free and do not fall under Utah’s liquor statutes.

Meanwhile the newly appointed commissioner is having trouble justifying the law. "I'm struggling with the concept that an adult beverage may be served but an adult movie cannot be shown at the same time," he said.

Ahhhhh yes welcome to the 1920's and the draconian laws of Utah and the Mormon Taliban. Did anyone else hear of BYU's decision to suspend one of their basketball players for having premarital sex ... no sh*t . Yes its 2011 I'm surprised blacks dont have separate water fountains and women have to wear burkas .

I didn't know that one state of the U.S. is sooo retarded and ruled by those Mormons ! Jesus, I'm soooo happy to be in Europe on so many levels.

Can someone explain to me how that Utah state is the way it is ? Only an american can enlight me as i doubt to find the answer on the Internet. I am not being sarcastic here.

Let me guess, the Mormons in the bar started a roving rape gang? Started with raping the tv and the rest of the patrons at the bar, right? No? That combination has LITERALLY never caused an issue? Oh. f*cking sexually repressed losers. Is it also true that in some parts of the United States you can't get completely naked strippers in the same venue as hard alcohol? That just seems bizarre. Whisky, weed and exposed p*ssy. Oh Canada!

@Bullit - Well, because Americans believe very strongly about freedom of religion anyone can pray anyway they want. Which is why we have stuff like JDubs (Jehovah Witnesses) and Scientology here. As long as their religious rites don't get in the way of human rights then everything is kosher. America is still a bastion of resistance against anti-religious thought and the false claim that religion starts wars. Even with these beliefs Utah started because protestant America didn't like the claim that Christ taught his teachings to Native Americans which is a tenet of LDS (Mormon) belief. So they chased the Mormons out of the Country, even making it legal to kill and murder a Mormon in the state of Missouri (the state didn't even realize that it was still a law until the mid 1990's when they repealed it) The founder of the religion died, Brigham Young took over and moved the followers to what is now Utah. After setting it for X amount of years they applied for Statehood and received it. Many of the outdated laws, almost all of them have to do with liquor, are currently being repealed because the politicians, most of them being LDS, of the State are starting to realize how silly these laws are.

However, I am fine with not having to worry about so many drunk drivers like I had to do when I lived in Ohio.

Should have just been fined for showing a sh*t and retarded movie.

@UVU; Thanks a lot mate.

The freedom of religion is a good thing as people should choose freely their belief.

But when the Mormons are taking to this extreme measure, I would think that they're taking advantage of that freedom of belief by misleading an entire state according to their interpreation of the bible. And that truly amazes me.

@Bullit - but 'freedom of religion' with limits isn't freedom. I'm don't have anything against the Mormons. I actually dislike any 'organized' religion. They all interpret (twist) The Bible to meet their own needs.

Less freedom Of religion. More freedom FROM religion.
