Letter: Allowing discrimination against gays opens door to all discrimination
First Published Mar 01 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 01 2014 01:01 am

Sen. Stuart Reid introduced a bill into this year’s legislative session that would allow people and businesses to refuse service to a gay person, based on religious beliefs ("Senators: Utah narrowly dodged Arizona’s fate on gay bias bill," Tribune, Feb. 25). OK, tit for tat.

If this bill had passed, then I, as a landlord, and based on my religious freedom, would then be able to refuse to rent to Mormons, or any other person I view as conflicting with my religious beliefs.

Same principle, different manifestation, equally ludicrous.
