Mormon Quitting Church in Droves over Prop 8

by: Andrew Callahan

Sun Nov 09, 2008 at 11:10:39 AM PST

The website Signing for Something http://www.signingforsomething... is registering resignations of Mormons who are quitting the church over Prop 8.  Many are also posting their letters of resignation for the world to read.  There is much anger within the Mormon Church directed at the hierarchy of the church for its generations of lying and misleading its own members.  For many, Prop 8 was the last straw.

... and it is another reason to keep up the pressure.  Boycotts, no matter how small, and calls for repeal of their tax-exempt status, no matter how legally shaky, will have positive effects for us -- even if in unexpected ways -- simply because these actions keep the Mormons on the defensive.

Now we need a measure of progress.  How many Mormons are there in the United States and how many have resigned so far?

Resignations from the church also show others that life without organized religion is not only possible but enjoyable.  Every time someone walks away from their church, the influence of those left behind drops.  Eventually church influence will degenerate to nothing.  

The Mormon Church understands all of this, and they are scared.  Let's keep up the pressure.

The strong backlash against the LDS Church over Proposition 8 is taking a new twist. LDS members - sometimes whole LDS families - say they are now leaving the Church because of its opposition to same-sex marriage.
