UPDATE: A “Flat Lander’s Update” video (this one only two minutes) has been added that tells what happened after the “Flat Lander Speaks” video. That video is at the bottom of this page.
I have been notified by my bishop that the Church intends to excommunicate me.
I have prepared the following two-part video (totaling 13 minutes) that explains what I did to get them to make this threat.
I want you to know, that regardless of any action the church takes or doesn’t take. I will NOT cease my actions to stop them from supporting Proposition 8, and I will work as hard as I can to defeat Prop 8 and all similar measures. Bigotry in any form is wrong, and disguising it as “love” as the church leadership is now doing is especially distasteful.

Please, continue to speak out.
Here is a letter on Kearney Nebraska Stake letterhead my bishop delivered to me on September 22, 2008.

Dear Brother Andrew D. Callahan
The Stake Presidency is considering formal disciplinary action in your behalf, including the possibility of disfellowshipment or excommunication, because you are reported to have participated in conduct unbecoming a member of the Church and have been in apostasy.
You are invited to attend this disciplinary council to give your response and, if you wish, to provide witnesses and other evidence in your behalf.
The disciplinary council will be held on September 26, at 6:30 PM at the Kearney Stake Center.
