SALT LAKE CITY – A Mormon man well-known for running a website that provides a forum for church members questioning their faith says he is set to be kicked out of the religion.
John Dehlin of Logan, Utah, said Thursday that a disciplinary hearing is set for Jan. 25 at which he's likely to be censured or excommunicated.
Dehlin says on his website that a letter from a regional church leader cites the website, Mormonstories.org, and his public support of same-sex marriage.
Mormon officials aren't discussing Dehlin's case specifically, but they have said previously that the church welcomes questions about the faith but has concerns about members who distance themselves from doctrine and encourage others to follow them.
Last year, the church excommunicated Kate Kelly, founder of a prominent Mormon women's group.
