Thank you, allies.

An LDS (Mormon) professor at BYU was fired for his stance on same-sex marriage. (One guess: he was for it.) I think that BYU, as a privately funded church university, gets to make its own decisions about what kind of dissent, free thinking and such that it tolerates. Obviously, Professor Nielsen crossed that line for them.

That said, I'm thankful that we have allies in the religious community. I like to think of a world where I'll stand up for your right to your religious beliefs, and you'll stand up for my civil rights.

The story is in the Salt Lake Tribune.
