John Dehlin was excommunicated for apostasy Monday. His ouster is the latest in a series of high profile disciplinary actions the Mormon church has taken against outspoken members.
John Dehlin founded the Mormon Stories podcast and has commented extensively on topics such as LGBT issues and gender within the religion. He now faces excommunication.
A Google search of the phrase “is Mormonism a cult” produced an answer in the affirmative on Monday. The search results have since been changed.
Updated: the list of Mormons facing disciplinary action from their church is growing just days after Kate Kelly and John P. Dehlin were threatened with excommuncation. Kelly has pushed for female ordination and Dehlin has championed LGBT issues.
At all times and in all things and in all places.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was in the spotlight all year long. Will it ever be as cool to be a Mormon as it was in 2012?
