  • In 1976 a legislator made a point of telling me women didn't belong in the legislature. I couldn't believe it.
  • This year, I've had about half a dozen legislators tell me women really don't belong in the legislature, and they just can't vote for a bill with a woman's name on it.
  • I think it's wrong, particularly for clergymen, to protect a child molester. This is a step backwards.
    • As quoted in The Salt Lake Tribune (February 26, 1988)
      • Stated in response to legislation which would allow confessions from child abusers to the clergy to remain confidential
  • I am liberal in that I believe we have a responsibility to care for the elderly, the poor, the handicapped and the mentally retarded. I support programs aiding these citizens. I am conservative in that when it comes to giving away taxpayers money on such things as the Heber Creeper.
