The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or the Mormons, announced in a press conference today at church headquarters in Salt Lake City about a pledge its leaders are giving to support anti-discrimination laws for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people. The caveat is that the same laws must also state protections of the rights of religious groups. The Mormon Church has been vocal in recent years about the attacks on religious freedom. But unlike the Catholics, the Southern Baptists, or other Evangelicals, they seem to be willing to make a compromise with the LGBT community that it often speaks out against to ensure their own freedoms are protected.
