Although the HRC is glad that the LDS church is publicly, officially, and loudly voicing support for state-wide and even nation-wide nondiscrimination for LGBT, it says the the religious freedom exceptions make it deeply flawed.
"Doctors would still be allowed to deny medical care. Pharmacists would still be allowed to refuse to fill valid prescriptions. And landlords, as well as business operators, would still be allowed to reject LGBT people. All in the name of religion."
