Responses from Bishops and Stake Presidents about Public Support of Ordain Women and Same-Sex Marriage

John Dehlin Disciplinary Councils

I’m still trying to get to the bottom of this question: Can LDS church members remain members in good standing/full fellowship (with a temple recommend) and show public support for either Ordain Women and/or Same-Sex Marriage?

I have a favor to ask those of you who are willing.  Will you please email your bishops and/or stake presidents with the following question:

“Dear – Bishop/Stake President,

I have a quick question to ask.  Can I remain a member in good standing/full fellowship (with a temple recommend) and show public support for either 1) Ordain Women or 2) Same-Sex Marriage?  Please let me know as soon as you can.”

Then (if you are able/willing) please send me the answers and I will post them here.  I am happy to anonymize the responses to protect your confidentiality if you need that.

Thanks in advance!

P.S.  Please do this even if you are a post-Mormon or an ex-Mormon.  All we need are 10 or so responses and we will have accomplished the objective.
