The Gay Rights Ad Salt Lake Woke Up To This Morning

Salt Lake Tribune readers who opened their newspapers today got a message straight from the gay community. Truth Wins Out, responding to ad that ran Friday in the New York Times headlined, “No Mob Violence” that accused the LGBT protesters of attacking religious communities unfairly, ran its own full page ad in the city most closely associated with the Mormon Church.

The ad, titled “Lies in the Name of the Lord”, includes defamatory remarks made by Christian leaders James Dobson, Chuck Colson and Rick Cizik. Most of the remarks are made against Mormons and the ad concludes saying, “It appears the only thing these men have in common with the Mormon Church is an uncommon zeal for promoting anti-gay legislation.”
