Following the Mormon Church’s decision to declare gays and lesbians in committed relationships “apostates” and refusing to bless/confirm/ordain kids unless they disavow their gay parents, there’s been a huge backlash from practicing Mormons.
Now, there are plans for a mass resignation this Saturday:
[The plan is to] Walk/ March together around Temple square and deposit our letters in a mail box near the church office… bring just a personal letter to the church about why you resigned. All those simply in support are of course welcome too. We will listen to 4-5 [testimonials]/ speakers at the park while people who need to get their letters together.
A lawyer on site and affiliated with the event will be offering advice to make sure our resignations are processed immediately and without ward leader intervention.
Already, more than 800 people have said they’re attending (though not all of them will be resigning).
If you’re a Mormon and you need information on how to resign from the Church, here’s a helpful graphic:
