I just mailed my letter. Here’s an excerpt…
I have thought about this a great deal, and I cannot in good conscience be affiliated with any organization that would use its resources to strip a minority group of its civil rights. Having been raised a Mormon since birth, my family has instilled in me a truly Christian sense of ethics and morals. This religiously motivated attack is profoundly immoral and is in direct contradiction to the teachings of Jesus Christ – love, compassion, freedom, unity, inclusion, and equality. Because this proposition won by such a narrow margin, I hold the leaders of the Church personally responsible for a devastating blow to civil rights in this country.
This letter is my formal resignation from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
