Utah Alcoholic Beverage Commission Allows Religious Ads

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- In response to a court order, the Utah Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission is changing the state's alcohol advertising rules to allow advertising to use religious figures or symbols or a religious theme to promote alcohol. If finalized as part of new rules to be adopted by the commission in December, the change will reverse the commission's ban on religious themes adopted just last Friday. Those rules, which the commission claims were adopted inadvertently, confused Utah alcoholic beverage vendors, who have on occasion poked fun at elements of Mormon culture.
