When David and I were communicating recently about getting his situation with his local LDS Church leaders national media exposure, he referred me to some of his postings on MormonThink.org that have led to excommunication plans arranged at his expense. These links included:http://www.mormonthink.com/christian.htm
This one was described to me by David as "[a]ctually the article that seemed to piss them off":http://www.MormonThink.com/politics.htm
(For further background on how this incident developed into a national story, see: http://exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?)2,645486,645486#msg-645486
In the process of getting hold of David, the "Daily Beast" contacted me. The result was a very good and extensive interview with David about the upcoming Mormon Church trial against him. David is to be applauded for his courage, integrity and honesty in blowing the whistle on this inquisitional Mormon kangaroo court masquerading as "inspiration."
In that interview, "Daily Beast" reporter Jamie Reno made reference to another fine article that David had written which resulted in the Mormon Church moving to strip him of his LDS membership:
"In his role as managing editor of MormonThink, Twede wrote an article about Romney last month titled 'The God of Mitt Romney: Why Do Some Claim He’s Not Christian?'http://www.mormonthink.com/christian.htm
"Then last week he posted several stories about the political history of LDS and how the Church may or may not influence Romney, as well as a few blog posts that were tongue-in-cheek takes on the Church. And that was apparently all it took for Church leaders to intervene."

What an utterly bone-headed move by the Mormon CHurch. No wonder it doesn't want to talk about it. But the lid has been blown off and the hangman's noose is out of the bag. More media exposure is underway.
