Again, an activist is excommunicated for being an "apostate," specifically wanting Mormons to allow gay marriage and the ordination of women. He didn't quit the church and call himself an ex-Mormon. He didn't start a competing church. He was booted out by bureaucrats for being disobedient.

Hundreds quit Mormon church at Salt Lake rally protesting decision to label gay members ‘apostates’, by Tom Boggioni, Raw Story, Nov.16, 2015, http://www.rawstory.com/2015/11/hundred ... apostates/

My comment: The hot button here is that the Mormon Church won't baptize children of gays and will require them to renounce their parents at age 18 if they want to join.

Apparently the church bureaucrats keep lapsed members in the files until they openly quit, and send out missionaries periodically to try to coax the ex-members back to church and especially to tithing 10% of their income. Now the churches bureaucratic rigidity, plus its bigotry, has caused this footbullet of mass resignation.

Maybe there can be a mass resignation of CoS members, too. The wanna-be-ex-Mormons, after a rally giving out blank resignation letters, and speeches in a public park, marched to a US Postal box . People mailed their letters as others applauded and took commemorative photos.
