Join me today as I interview Salt Lake City lawyer, Mark Naugle, who developed the website QuitMormon.com – which aims to give former Mormons a more streamlined way to resign their membership from the LDS church, without the need to meet with a church authority figure. Since 2015, Mark has filed over 80,000 legal resignation letters with the LDS church. However, in response to his website, the church recently changed the terms to now require a notarized letter in order to apply for resignation.
Listen along to hear Mark’s personal story, how QuitMormon.com came to be, and what he is doing now to continually challenge the LDS church on this issue.
