“After reading in person a 23-page letter detailing his concerns, [banished LDS General Authority, George P.] Lee said he was astounded at the speed with which he was ousted. Within minutes, two officials came to his office and told him to turn over all church property, including a credit card and a signed pass with which faithful Mormons gain entry to their temples. ‘I was stripped of everything,’ said Lee, 46, a father of seven who is without pension or immediate job prospect. ‘It was just absolutely cold.’”
