Utah attorney helping Mormons resign from church

A Utah based attorney has announced that he is helping people resign from the Mormon Church following a controversial policy that leaked onto social media regarding the children of same-sex couples.

The policy, which was posted online, states that the children of parents who have same-sex marriages or relationships cannot be blessed or baptized until they are 18.

Social media channels lit up following the announcement on Friday afternoon prompting the church to release a 10 minute video defending their policy by claiming it’s to protect children.

Utah attorney, Mark Naugle, has offered his services for Mormons who are upset about the information to resign from the church through his office.

"There will be fourteen hundred people who won't be on the record, coming in the next 5 to 15 days, just from my end,” Naugle explained during a phone interview. “I'm also attending a mass resignation event on Saturday, they're starting at City Creek Park, and I'll be going there with blank forms for everyone to fill out, and I think according to Facebook, there are over 1000 people that plan to attend."
