Well, this is unfortunate news.
Top leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Tuesday for passage of laws granting statewide protections against housing and employment discrimination for gay and lesbian Utahns — as long as those measures safeguard religious freedom.
I am not a fan of the Mormon Church. It is a blatantly heretical deviation from the historic Christian faith. I do not concede that they are just another sect of Christianity. They deviate from Christian orthodoxy in too many ways to mention. That said, it has generally been a force for cultural conservatism. It’s sad to see them throwing in the towel. The idea that you can ban discrimination and still protect religious conscious is foolish.
