The Salt Lake Tribune reported on Friday that the AP has decided to comply with recent directives about how to refer to the church I grew up in, and its members. Though I might not like the AP’s decision about what to call the church, I understand it: President Nelson has a position of authority in the organization that I do not. But I do not want the AP (or anyone else) to stop calling me Mormon. Nelson may no longer be Mormon — but I am.
