Headline: Mormon church excommunicates founder of women's group
QUOTE: "Jan Shipps, a retired religion professor from Indiana who is a non-Mormon expert on the church, said church leaders are practicing "boundary maintenance," using Kelly and Dehlin as examples to show people how far they can go in questioning church practices. Shipps said she wasn't surprised that Kelly was ousted, considering Kelly chose not to attend the hearing or show contriteness. "It does more than excommunicate Kelly," Shipps said of the decision. "It warns everybody." Kelly said she stands behind everything she has done since forming Ordain Women in 2013." -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 03:50, 24 June 2014 (UTC) -- PS:FYI for future editing.
