Letter: Rise up, sisters, and demand church changes
First Published Jun 12 2014 04:41 pm • Last Updated Jun 12 2014 05:20 pm

I am not a member of the LDS Church, nor am I affiliated with Ordain Women, but I have a message to those who support Kate Kelly and believe church discipline of her is unjust.

It is time to speak up, not just with your voices, but with your feet. Do not attend church meetings, classes, or in any way fulfill your church jobs. Do not pay your tithing. Do not plead with the church to change. Demand that it change. And until it does, do not support a church that does not support you. If a boycott of buses can end a culture of second-class citizenship, so can a boycott of pews. Remember, the moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends to justice. Sisters, you have waited long enough to rise up. Let it be this time that you are heard.
