Just by sheer coincidence, I happen to have written a number of posts that have the word “Excommunicated” in the title. It has always amazed me to see the number of hits I get each day on those particular posts. Today, at least five of those posts are in the top ten. It makes me wonder what people really want to know about LDS excommunications.
My friend Russell Anderson of Thoughts From Salem keeps a list of members who have been excommunicated or have resigned. The list is here. Last week he added podcaster and former CES employee Mike Stroud. Mike’s podcasts are at this link. I hope people will be kind to Mike and his family, especially as he goes through this difficult time in his life.
Update 2-20-19: Link to many transcripts of Mike’s podcasts are maintained by Robert Briscoe and located at this link.
Update 2-27-19: MaryAnn added more to the story over at Wheat and Tares. In her most recent post, she addresses the larger story of apostasy and extremism. Worth a look.
And, for what it’s worth, here are the links to the posts highlighted above:
Denver Snuffer – I think most everyone knows the story
Duane Crowther – NOT Excommunicated
Max Skousen – was excommunicated twice
Mel Fish – Mel recently passed away
Brent Larsen – Ex’ed for stating Denver was the only prophet since Joseph
