Driving up 700 South on Salt Lake City's east side, motorists will see a large placard in front of a "For Sale" sign at 840 East.
It says that the house was where the late LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley reportedly was born.
Hinckley might be interested to know that his birthplace is being sold by a lesbian couple, Keri Jones and Cristy Gleeve, who are parents of Glory, their daughter. Jones was involved in a high-profile child-custody dispute several years ago, Babs De Lay is the real estate agent. (Yep, she's gay, too.)
During Hinckley's tenure, the Utah-based faith softened its stance on homosexuality, saying it is OK to be gay, just not act on it.
But the LDS Church was involved in several efforts to block gay marriage. Soon after Hinckley's death in January 2008, the faith helped successfully push California's Proposition 8. On Wednesday, a federal appeals court declared the Golden State's same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. Next stop: The U.S. Supreme Court.
