As COVID restrictions lift, and Latter-day Saints return to in-person church services, behind the scenes there is a rising desire to purge gay Mormons from membership in the Church. For a growing number of legally married gay couples, Mormon church leaders are actively and fervently excommunicating them from Church membership.
Just ONE WEEK after Jeremy Adriano and Randy Wellbaum were legally married, their church leaders terminated their membership by excommunication. The couple was told that if they dissolved their marriage, they could remain members of the Mormon church—despite church leaders saying gay marriage is no longer considered apostasy.
In this episode we take a deep dive into the lives of Randy and Jeremy and discuss why, as gay men, they remain active in their faith and why they CHOOSE to worship with a Church that considers them apostates.
Randy and Jeremy were excommunicated for falling in love.
