Mormon Writer Critical of Romney Faces Excommunication

He challenges Mormon teachings as well on website


The Orlando-based managing editor of MormonThink.com, an online magazine that challenges Mormon teachings, said he faces excommunication because of his writings — including some critical of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a Mormon.

David Twede, 47, has been summoned to appear before the disciplinary council of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Orlando on Sept. 30, when he could face "disfellowshipment or excommunication," according to a letter he posted on his blog.
