Which church-and-state do you belong to?

Opinions in Salt Lake City about the ongoing dispute about First Amendment rights on a section of Main Street that the city sold to the Mormon Church divide sharply by religion — of course: 90 percent of Mormons oppose the new ACLU suit about the city's solution to the Main Street plaza, but 58 percent of non-Mormons support it.

Meanwhile . . . Also in Salt Lake City, the state's largest synagogue welcomes its new rabbi, who happens to be a lesbian. See, that's the amazing thing about Salt Lake: If you're on the non-Mormon side (where even Jews are considered "gentiles"), you're in a surprisingly liberal milieu. But, sadly, Mormons rarely visit.
