Deseret News: Religious freedom and anti-bias bills announced at pro-traditional marriage gathering

(Deseret News) Supporters of traditional marriage rallied support Thursday for three bills that would respond to a December federal court ruling that struck down Utah’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage and a statewide nondiscrimination law.

The three bills are sponsored by Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, who asked more than 1,000 people gathered at Thanksgiving Point to speak out against a “sexual stratagem” that has divided political loyalties and threatens religious liberty.

“Ladies and gentlemen, do not allow the loss of religious liberty to be the inevitable inheritance you pass onto your children and their children because you would not sacrifice for their freedoms of religion and religious conscience,” Reid said.
