Remove my name from the church records

This letter is official notice that, effective immediately, I am terminating my membership in the LDS church. I understand that this resignation cancels my baptism, confirmation, sealing to my parents and siblings, Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthoods, and I fully understand the supposedly eternal consequences of canceling and annulling the aforementioned ordinances. Please remove me from the records of the church without delay. The only communication I wish to receive from the church is a letter confirming that my name and my son's name are no longer affiliated with the the church in any way, shape, or form. Membership Record Number (MRN) Full name LDS Account Username Birth Date Ward Membership 000-123-4567 Former Member abc123 Day/Month/Year Ward name, Stake name

Remove my son from the church records

I blessed my son on Month, Date, Year. Please remove his name from the records of the church, delete his name from any databases, destroy any physical documents which mention his name, and immediately send a confirmation of the aforementioned actions. Do not attempt to contact him in any way. If a bishopric member, home teacher, primary teacher, missionary, or any other member of the LDS church attempts to make contact with my son, now or at any point in the future, I will respond with legal action against the church.


Information for church statisticians

I was born in the covenant as one of five children. My parents were converts to the church. I served the church faithfully throughout my life, including an honorable full-time mission (mission time and date). After the mission, I served as a counselor in the an Elder's quorum presidency and as a Ward Mission Leader (WML), both in (singles ward). During my tenure as WML, Thomas Monson instructed members of the church in California to support Proposition 8. I immediately told my missionaries not to attempt to defend Monson's instructions as divine or inspired. I told them this we have not seen the end of this, as a church, and in the meantime this doctrine is not worth defending. In the following year I witnessed firsthand as ward's missionary program was destroyed by the alledgely inspired actions of Thomas Monson. Five years later, not a single individual who was converted, baptized, and confirmed during that period of time remains a member of the LDS church. In addition, this alleged revelation greatly diminished the faith of many members who chose to stay. Many are there for social reasons, but have no faith in either Joseph Smith or Thomas Monson. On a more personal level, this was the catalyst for destroying the faith of many of my siblings.

Note for Tad Callister

I wish to personally thank you for your most recent talk in the March, 2014 issue of the Ensign. It confirmed to me that the LDS church is not simply a fraud, but a malevolent institution whose teachings are harmful to children. It was your talk that made me realize that, should I sustain the leaders of the LDS church, I would be endorsing doctrines and teachings that destroy the self-esteem and self-worth of young children. I refuse to make such an endorsement, and therefore resign my membership in the church.

Please send confirmation that my name and my son's name are completely removed and expunged from all physical and digital records and archives maintained by the church.

No longer yours,

Former Member
