Do you want to be excommunicated?

John Dehlin Blog, Q&A, Writings

No.  I value my membership in this church, even though I am clearly unorthodox and unorthoprax at this point in time.  My genuine desire is that this investigation go away, and that I can be left alone to participate (as I choose), and to continue helping Mormons and former Mormons in any way that I am able.  That said, I believe that the inability to open discuss difficult issues with the LDS church is the biggest problem facing Mormons today — and I am willing to face a disciplinary council if the church gives me the choice of either self-censoring, or losing my membership.
