I have first-hand knowledge of a recent Mission President who excommunicated relatively soon after returning home. I've waited awhile to share this here. Multiple instances of adultry going back through his prior calling as a stake president and before. As to how I know, I'll just say I was in a HP calling at the time. As to who it is, I'll leave it to others to 'out' the guy (board rules you know). For trolls and such, perhaps I was in the court of love...
Anyone else have similar examples of the powers of decrement in action? If someone here thinks/knows they served under him do chime in.
He was a real asshole as SP. Really came down on people and enforced his own stricter ideas doctrine and what it meant to keep the commandments. The irony of it all is palpable.
MP callings come from the GA's and ultimately done by the 15. Selected from the pool of names for higher callings submitted by SP's and above who supposedly know them well and are vetted through the same CIA like vetting process that GA's are subject too.
I was also in HP level calling when he was SP. When he was called to be a MP was when all my doubts about my or others having any powers of decernment were confirmed.
