Mormons throw support behind gay-rights cause

• AP
It looked like a stunning reversal: the same church that helped defeat gay marriage in California standing with gay-rights activists on an anti-discrimination law in its own backyard.

On Tuesday night, after a series of clandestine meetings between local gay-rights backers and Mormons in Salt Lake City, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced it would support proposed city laws that would prohibit discrimination against gays in housing and employment.

The ordinances passed and history was made: It marked the first time the Salt Lake City-based church had supported gay-rights legislation.

 Hallelujah, bruther!  No doubt the devil has posessed Marie and Donnie Osmond and the rest of their famiies cause of all the hip wiggling them two are doing in Dancing With The Stars. 


See, Martha, didn't I tell you that all that rubbing and thrusting and jumping and showing your underwear was tempting the devil?
