Mormon church backs LGBT rights -- with one condition
Mormon church wants to call a partial truce.
Convening a rare press conference on Tuesday at church headquarters in Salt Lake City, Mormon leaders pledged to support anti-discrimination laws for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, as long the laws also protect the rights of religious groups. What are your thoughts? plus Mega Star Mega Feath Glenn Drover joins us in the studio.The Notes Behind The Music Weds.
In exchange, the Mormon church wants gay rights advocates -- and the government -- to back off.
When North Carolina passed a bill that denied LGBT people protections, it caused a dilemma for the NBA -- should the league move the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte? Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors was wishy-washy on the issue, basically saying nothing. Thankfully, former player and now analyst Charles Barkley is more forceful: "I think the NBA should move the All-Star game from there next year. As a black person I'm against any form of discrimination, against whites, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, however you want to phrase it. It's my job, with the position of power that I'm in and being able to be on television, I'm supposed to stand up for the people who can't stand up for themselves."
We examine the continuing controversy, plus look at whether baseball players should wear dresses.

What the HELL?
Discrimination is discrimination. I don't care if it is racism, sexism, or any OTHER form of bigotry. I do NOT live in the "Discrimi - Nation." I live in the United States of America.
We have a Constitution - the foundation of most of our laws.
If you are a regular listener, I bet you know where we are going with this...
...And Executive Orders? When President Obama uses them, they - and he - are evil, operating outside the law, treasonous, reasons for impeachment.

We welcome and value the unique contribution that each Christian tradition and our diverse experiences and backgrounds, bring to our work. We grow from the ways we learn from each other to serve the people of Haiti and debunk the harmful teachings of hatred by certain missionaries in Haiti."
We will also be looking at the ban on conversion therapy, marriage equlity, Department of Labor changes to the definition of spouse and more.
Tonight on Making Sense with Steve Leser and the Rude Pundit we discuss the Cruz candidacy, the 5 year anniversary of Obamacare, allegations Republican congressmen were fed Israeli intelligence to help them torpedo Iran negotiations, LGBT rights and more.
When the Governor of North Carolina signed HB2 last week, he not only legalized discrimination against LGBT in the state, but he prevented any city or county from protecting LGBT people locallly. This was in response to efforts in the city of Charlotte to create protections for gays, lesbians and transgender people.
Now there is a media-relations firestorm surrounding the state, and the sports world is thrust into the middle of it. While the NCAA and pro sports leagues have talked tough about these kinds of laws, they have never taken action on them, even when presented the opportunity in Houston.
Are they all talk and no action in North Carolina? We discuss.

The homophobic and anti-gay tweets of a couple prominent professional athletes surfaced this week. The catch? The tweets were from several years ago. So when Eagles draftee Wendell Smallwood had to face sudden questions about tweets from his high school days he deleted his account and dismissed the tweets as thoughts from his youth. Trail Blazers player Al-Farouq Aminu has seemingly gotten away with his tweets of six years ago by simply deleting them without comment.
What is the statute of limitations on anti-gay comments and tweets?
The battle over North Carolina continues, as the state's governor seems unwilling to shift to pressure about his anti-LGBT law that has caused concerts to be canceled and many sports figures have spoken out.

One lgbt issue is that they are, by and large, NOT creative, and the devil came not except for to kill, steal, and (destroy). Start your own churches, scouting organizations and societies. If you wouldn't sue a Muslim owner you should stay the hell out of our business "bidges."
