150 Mormons Resign from Church En Masse in Support of Gay Marriage
Those who resigned cited equal marriage, ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’ teachings and inconsistencies in doctrine on polygamy as reasons for leaving the faith. The mass ceremony is unusual, as Mormonism encourages a culture of obedience.
The church, which claims to have 14.4 million members around the world, is strongly politically opposed to equal marriage and has campaigned against the move in the US.
…will hardly be headline-worthy in just a few years time, I predict. The majority of the country no longer gives one single f#@k about the evils of homosexuality they were spoon fed as they grew up in their churches, whether Mormon, Catholic, or otherwise.
Within a decade it will be unthinkable not to insist on depriving LGBT Americans of their equality and humanity, but to cling to a faith that insists you do so.
Just wait and see.
In the meantime, many thanks to you brave former Mormons – do I smell a Rural Juror sequel in the works? – for making the right call and getting the heck out of Dodge!
