    are the ones in the pews and the ones in the pulpits ... outsiders can only support, not instigate.

    Can you live with excommunication and shunning? I've seen it work and what it does to people ... it takes lots of faith and uncommon guts to live with it and stay in the same theological community.

      That's actual doctrine.
      Two people in my section of the church walked out during the anti-mandate sermon Sunday. There were probably half the normal attendees and the report in the bulletin had the collection down a quarter from last year this time.

        made out to organizations / political groups you support in lieu of donations to the church. Let them know specifically how you feel in the way that really hurts.
