Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio:
The Mormon Church cracks down on dissent with
the threat of excommunication aimed at two prominent activists. We’ll talk with Bruce Bastian, who left the Church 20 years ago but still has strong feelings about his experiences as a gay Mormon.
You’ll also meet Carol Lynn Pearson, whose marriage to a gay Mormon led to both: heartbreak, and to a life of activism to change the Church she still claims as her own. Today she is a popular author, poet and playwright as well as an advocate for women and LGBT Mormons.
Plus, Jody May-Chang on the challenges of independent progressive journalism in Boise, Idaho.
