Definitely. Otherwise, some of those city council members would have been way out on a limb minus protection they were seeking from church sanction.
There's many grassroots Mormons who are upset -- or who'll be upon learning -- about this. Like this one woman the Salt Lake Trib quoted this morning:
...Jessica Rodrigues argued homosexuality is akin to pornography and said residents should have the right not to associate with gay people. "It is a moral wrong to pass this ordinance," she said, "It is awful that you get the support of the LDS Church on this."
