Mormons Condemn Discrimination Against Gays

Leaders within the conservative Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are calling for Utah state laws that would protect gays and lesbians against housing and employment discrimination. It is an amplification of their already held position against discrimination.

The LDS Church still preaches that sexual relations, other than those between married men and women, are contrary to the laws of God. In calling for non-discrimination statutes for gays, Mormon leaders are demanding religious freedoms, as well. ABC’s Jim Ryan reports.
