Utah Senator Calls LGBTQ Rights Bill 'Counterproductive'
Mike Lee, a republican senator from Utah, caused a stir Friday says Huffington Post.
He commented on the Equality Act, a landmark anti-discrimination bill.
The bill would extend civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community.
Lee called the bill “counterproductive" after the Democrat-controlled House passed it Friday afternoon.
Lee tweeted we're becoming more tolerant and this legislation “unnecessarily pits communities against each other.
