Reuters is reporting that about 150 people gathered in Salt Lake City to participate in a mass resignation ceremony from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormon church). Participants came from Utah, Arizona, Idaho and elsewhere.
They signed a "Declaration of Independence from Mormonism" and later shouted "Freedom," from the top of Ensign Peak, where Bringham Young had surveyed the spot for what would become Salt Lake City.
Reasons for leaving the Mormon church, Reuters reports, include "the church's political activism against gay marriage and doctrinal teachings that conflict with scientific findings or are perceived as racist or sexist."
