The LDS Church adds a new step for members using QuitMormon.com to resign
By the thousands, onetime Latter-day Saints have turned to an immigration lawyer in Salt Lake City for help. They want to resign their church membership without having to interact with a bishop or any other lay leader.
Mark Naugle, largely through Reddit, has cultivated a unique and free service through his QuitMormon website.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has largely complied with the more than 40,000 legal letters Naugle has sent its way since late 2015, but it recently added a new restriction amid some growing frustration.
Those who use his service to resign their membership must now provide a notarized letter....
Interesting case, though I would like to compare other churches resignation methods. You could also compare it to political parties--how hard is it to change your party affiliation? Voting is different in each state; many make it very hard to obtain an absentee ballot and have no early voting days--how about your state? how hard is it for you to get an absentee ballot or can you vote early?
And, since we are speaking of a 'church' that the secular world puts into the same grab-bag of churches like the Roman Catholic Church, let's ask Jehovah's Witnesses (previously known as "Millerites" in the 19th Century when their leader forecast the End of the World, and has been forecasting it regularly ever since) how hard it is to 'disassociate' from them. I have heard it is nearly impossible, and they actually spy on each other.
