List of former Latter Day Saints

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of well-known Latter Day Saints who have been excommunicated, resigned, or no longer profess to be Latter Day Saints.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints[edit]

Although The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) does not regularly disseminate information about the excommunication or resignation of former members, persons who are here identified as having been excommunicated or resigned from the church have made such information public. In addition to former members of the LDS Church, there are a small number of adherents of related denominations (as labeled).

This list may also include former controversial members of the LDS Church, and is like the tip of an iceberg. The list could readily be extended to several hundred names of those prominent in society (now or earlier) who have turned their backs on Mormonism. A perfect illustration of this is to note that as of mid-2017, a name missing from the following list is Fawn Brodie, descendant of Mormon President David McKay, and the historian who wrote the first sharply negative professional biography of Joseph Smith, No Man Knows My History. Brodie's notoriety was so great in the latter half of the 20th that it would have been hard to find a single well-read Mormon who did not know her name and how she appeared to have betrayed the shared faith.

See: List of Latter-day Saints for current members of the LDS Church.
