Applause for the Church
I was both shocked and overjoyed upon hearing that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has decided to support the passage of a statewide nondiscrimination law in Utah ["Hearing Voices," Jan. 29, City Weekly].

The fact that people can be fired from their jobs or evicted from their homes simply for being who they are sickens me. It is completely antithetical to the concept of loving one another.

I applaud the church for taking this historic step in the fight to eradicate hateful discrimination from society, and I beseech everyone who believes in human rights to please contact your representatives and urge them to hasten the passage of nondiscrimination legislation.
