No tears shed for this one...

Mormon church President Thomas S. Monson dead at 90.

Quote:
Under Monson’s leadership ... the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints decided to label same-sex couples as apostates who could be excommunicated from the church. Excommunication in the faith often means the severing of deep family ties because of the central nature of the church in day to day life.
]....]

[he] also played a role in forming an alliance of faith groups in the first year of his presidency in 2008 to advocate the passing of California’s Proposition 8. The ballot measure, which eventually passed, defined marriage exclusively as union between a man and a woman.
from Thomas S. Monson, Mormon Church Leader Behind Prop 8, Apostate Label for Gay Couples, is Dead - Towleroad

Good riddance.

I think I'll celebrate with a strongly caffeinated and alcoholic beverage.

Does this raise the prospect of an even slightly less hateful leader for them?

Sure.... not that it'll make any difference considering that (like the pope) the organization itself will pressure their top leader into abandoning any kind of progressive shifts.

Mostly, the best way to make them shift progressive would be to threaten their pocketbook.

[Just ask Coca-Cola about that...]
