SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Oct. 24, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — Kate Kelly, the human rights attorney recently excommunicated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for publicly insisting women be allowed to join the LDS priesthood, is calling newly released Church essays on the issues “lies.”
Kelly made the comments shortly after the LDS Church published two essays discussing women, the all-male priesthood, and the Mormon’s belief in a deity known as the Heavenly Mother.
Kelly is the founder of the group, Ordain Women. She made headlines in 2014 when she was excommunicated while serving on the board of directors. She garnered more attention a year later when she organized mass resignations of church members and delivered them to LDS headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City.
Kelly most recently made news when she joined the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah in the role of strategic advocacy advisor.
