Denver C. Snuffer Jr. says he has no idea what happened at the LDS Church disciplinary hearing Sunday convened to consider excommunicating him for apostasy.
Snuffer, author of a controversial book alleging the Utah-based faith bears little resemblance to the church founded by Joseph Smith in 1830, arrived for the hearing with his wife and children by his side.
He wanted his family to know that the charges had nothing to do with immoral conduct, Snuffer said Monday.
Before Sunday's hearing, Snuffer had informed Truman Hunt, the Sandy LDS stake president who had called the hearing, that he would be bringing his family with him, the writer said. When Hunt failed to respond, Snuffer presumed it would be OK.
