A few days ago, I had a telephone conversation with two friends, a father and his adult son. During the conversation, I learned that another adult son of his had been excommunicated by the church.
The stated reason: Because he publicly refused to get the Covid-19 “vaccine.” Because of his decision, he was found in direct contravention with the church’s leaders – specifically, he was not “following the prophet” in getting the jab, so he was exed.
I now do not believe anyone who says we have a choice in taking the jab or not. That getting "vaxed" against Covid-19 is a voluntary thing, without any compulsion or coercion whatsoever. Baloney!
Neither do I believe that self-proclaimed priesthood holders/leaders who “exercise control or dominion or compulsion upon the souls of the children of men, in any degree of unrighteousness” (D&C 121:37) are entitled to the companionship of the heavens, the Spirit of the Lord, the priesthood nor its authority.
If such an excommunication can happen in a nice, rural Canadian town, it can happen anywhere.
“Anti-jabbers,” prepare yourselves. You have a target on your back.
Maybe one of these days I’ll blog about another church member who was excommunicated for standing up for the right thing…
