Utah state Sen. Chris Buttars said: “I don’t mind gays. I just don’t want ’em stuffin’ it down my throat all the time, and certainly in my kid’s face.”
The Utah Republican has been a staunch opponent of LGBT rights — until now. He authored the state’s anti-marriage law. But certainly he wouldn’t go against the wishes of the Mormon church.
Because the Mormon church has now supported protection for gays and lesbians in housing and employment in Salt Lake City, the senator might support those rights statewide. He may even sponsor the bill.
