SALT LAKE CITY — A well-known Mormon gay-rights advocate faces excommunication as he meets with a regional church leader to discuss his case.
John Dehlin also has operated a website for years that provides a forum for church members questioning their faith.
Although he expected to find out Sunday if he’d face a disciplinary hearing or be exonerated, no immediate decision was made.
His meeting comes six days after Kate Kelly, the founder of a prominent Mormon women’s group, was excommunicated in a case that sent ripples throughout the country.
Kelly is appealing that ruling.
Dehlin was told in early June to resign as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or face a disciplinary committee.
His church leader in Logan, Utah, has agreed to meet before deciding the next step.
