To Bishop H., Third ward.
I am offically requesting that my name be removed from the membership records of the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterĘDay Saints. I am not leaving the Church because of hurt feelings nor have I been offended by anyone. I am leaving because I believe the Mormon Church to be false.
I understand that the church believes there will be grave spiritual consequences if I leave the church, but I do not believe that. I insist that the word "excomunication" not be used in reference to me in any Church records or in the letter you send to notify me my name has been removed. I will not hesitate to take legal action if anything is said or done to slander my good name.
Please respect my request that my name be removed immediatly. My decision is final so do not send anyone to talk about my decision. As of today, March 15, 2005 at 12:59pm I am no longer bound by the Church rules or covenantes.
