Mormons Back Gay Rights in Salt Lake City . . . Sorta

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints supported two proposed Salt Lake City ordinances protecting gay and lesbian residents from housing and employment discrimination, but only because the law does not “do violence to the institution of marriage.”

Umm, what?

It seems this particular group of Mormons are willing to protect the rights of LGBT people – as long as they don’t plan on asking for gay marriage rights. What happens if Utah residents pass pro gay marriage laws? Will these Mormons no longer protect the LGBT community from housing and employment discrimination?
