    In a Utah version of George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television," the Downtown Business Alliance in Salt Lake City recently banned from public display such words as "justice" and "unity."

    Salt Lake Metro, a publication geared toward the gay and lesbian community, reported that when the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Utah submitted a dozen banners representing 12 different ideas to be displayed downtown for the recent Pride Day events in Salt Lake City, the Downtown Alliance squelched four.
   Besides "justice" and "unity," the alliance felt "sexuality" and "gender" also were too controversial.

    Pride Day organizers decided to pull all 12 banners, rather than compromise and were allowed to display them instead at the Salt Lake City Public Library.
