No Female Priests for you (Mormon Edition)
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has excommunicated a prominent backer of ordination of women priests, her advocacy group has said.
Kate Kelly, founder of Ordain Women, was notified of the ruling on Monday, a day after a trial by judges in the Mormon Church, Ordain Women said.
The group said the Mormon Church hierarchy deemed her an apostate for her contravention of Church doctrine.
That the church in question does not ordain women is not, in grand scheme of religious practices, all that odd (see, e.g., the Roman Catholic Church). It is just interesting that advocating for female ordination led to ex-communication.
