Behind the Headlines

LDS on same-sex marriage and Donald Trump, and Utah’s abortion law

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) The Salt Lake Temple, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019.

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints react to the faith’s support of a federal law that would codify same-sex marriage. Plus, Donald Trump announces another run for the presidency, but Latter-day Saint Republicans may not be in his camp. And, in an unusual move, state lawmakers say they’ll file an amicus brief opposing a hold on Utah’s abortion trigger law.

At 9 a.m. on Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Emily Anderson Stern and Peggy Fletcher Stack, along with news columnist Robert Gehrke, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.

Every Friday at 9 a.m., stream “Behind the Headlines” at, or tune in to KCPW 88.3 FM or Utah Public Radio for the broadcast. Join the live conversation by calling 801-355-TALK.
