LDS Boots ‘Ordain Women’ Leader

The Mormon church has excommunicated the prominent founder of a Mormon women's group. The group, Ordain Women, announced Monday afternoon that Kate Kelly's former church leaders in Virginia notified her of the decision. Kelly's former leaders in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had weighed the high-profile decision overnight. She did not attend the disciplinary hearing but instead held a vigil in Salt Lake City with about 200 supporters. As the leader of Ordain Women, Kelly is accused of apostasy, which is repeated and public advocacy of positions that oppose church teachings/Associated Press. More here. (AP photo of Kate Kelly)
