    Utah, Indiana religious freedom laws not alike

    Utah, Indiana religious freedom laws not alike | Deseret News

    "The Utah law grants equal protections to LGBT people and people of faith. It says that you can't discriminate against someone because of their religious beliefs, their sexual orientation or their gender identity," said University of Utah law professor Cliff Rosky.

    "The other laws don't do that," he said. "Our law bans discrimination based on religion, sexuality and gender. Their law legalizes discrimination based on religion."

    Utah added sexual orientation and gender identity to the state's anti-discrimination laws for housing and employment, expanded exemptions for religious institutions and their affiliates and provided protections for religious expression.

    I'm not sure I completely agree with the self-back-patting from the Utes, but it is interesting they apparently don't want any association with Indiana on this topic now.

    The proof will be in the pudding. If a Utah 'Memories Pizza' refuses to serve people at a gay wedding claiming the state's religious freedom act gives it the right to do so, we will have an answer to whether the law is adequate protection for homosexuals' civil rights.

    Nobody cares.
