I think that would be interesting. Get ex’d but still go to church. Take the sacrament, raise your hand in Sunday school. Basically act like nothing happened. I wonder if the bishop or someone would try to stop you?
Sam Young said that on his first day back in church after he was ex’d, the deacon walked right past him and didn’t give him the opportunity.
Yep, according to the handbook the Bishop has the obligation to safeguard his ward from Interlopers. He can inform the excommunicated person that his actions and comments must be in accordance with church doctrine and policy or he can put a "gag order" on the offender.

If the offender doesn't comply he can be escorted off church property. 8-)
But only in the most loving and Christlike way. You know, with a trespass letter.

:D

Right.....but on the other hand, I figure it's their church, their deal. They should be allowed to worship in peace at their meetings. Freedom of religion.

But when they get on my territory.....look out. :twisted:
