Cable company Comcast will let an ad challenging the Mormons’ anti-LGBTQ stance to run in Utah.

The contentious TV spot was produced by California-based advocate Fred Karger to expose and challenge the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ tax-exempt status. “Help Us” features former members of the LDS church asking viewers to help uncover the church’s “vast business holdings” and “secret political activities” by visiting mormontips.com.
Comcast originally agreed to air the ad in four Utah television markets. However, the corporation reneged on its promise two weeks ago after Karger held a news conference in Salt Lake City to announce the launch of his initiative.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a long history of fighting to deny LGBTQ people their rights. A decade ago, the church led the crusade against same-sex marriage in California.
