Mormon Leaders will only support Gay Rights if Religious Freedom is also Protected

They ain't slick.

Mormon church leaders held a press conference over their possible support of gay right, but the catch is, they want religious freedom to be protected too.

AP reports:

The church is promising to support some housing and job protections for gays and lesbians in exchange for legal protections for believers who object to the behavior of others.

It's not clear how much common ground the Mormons will find with this new campaign. The church insists it is making no changes in doctrine, and still believes it's against the law of God to have sex outside marriage between a man and a woman.

But church leaders who held a rare news conference Tuesday said "we must all learn to live with others who do not share the same beliefs or values."

So Mormon leaders will support LGBT rights as long as they don't have to?
