"I've got a firm, yet respectful, message for the leaders of the LDS Church. If the Golden Rule was good enough for Salt Lake City, then it ought to be good enough for everyone. If you really do oppose discrimination, it's time to stand up and say so. It's time to help pass nondiscrimination laws right here in this state and across the country, starting today. Because in the end, we are all judged by our actions, not by our words. ENDA is the right thing to do. It's time to get it passed. It's time to get it signed."

-- HRC President Chad Griffin calling on the Mormons to endorse LGBT nondiscrimination efforts nationwide during a speech in Utah. The church supported a nondiscrimination ordinance in Salt Lake City.
