Two Activists Within Mormon Church Threatened With Excommunication –

So now they’re asking people to resign? John Dehlin, founder of Mormon Stories, and Kate Kelly, founder of Ordain Women have both received disciplinary notices from the church.

“Mr. Dehlin was sent a letter on June 7 by the president of his stake, or church region, who he said he has never met, calling on him to either resign from the church or face a hearing before a disciplinary council. The letter, which Mr. Dehlin provided to The New York Times, said, “Because of the love I have for you, I have become concerned about some of your recent statements and actions regarding this church and your place in it.” It cited an Internet posting in which Mr. Dehlin wrote that he no longer believes many fundamental “truth claims” the church makes.”
