Disgruntled crowd gathers in Salt Lake City for mass resignation ceremony from the Mormon church

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."

    This “mass resignation” of 150 of the 14,000,000+ members of
    the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been an interesting media
    event. Membership and activity in the
    Church is voluntary. It saddens me that
    these brothers and sisters have taken the step to leave the Church of Jesus
    Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I wish them well and hope they will reconsider
    in the future.

    Interesting…. "mass" does not mean what it used to mean….

    not from my perspective, as a "fish swimming upstream"….

    I was born and raised Lutheran (Missouri Synod) and taught Sunday School and was a youth group leader…
    I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, after studying the Bible and the Book of Mormon, praying and fasting, and receiving a confirmation from the Holy Spirit….
