We have at least two really strong candidates this year:
First off, Kyrsten Sinema, who was just elected to the United States House of Representatives. She is an ex-Mormon, and I think she is the first openly bisexual person to get elected to the US Congress.
Then there’s David Twede, former editor of MormonThink. As you may recall, he almost faced a disciplinary court of the JoCJoL-dS, but in the end, he resigned from the church in front of an audience at the Ex-Mormon Foundation Conference.
If you know of any others who deserve to be in the running for the award, please nominate them in the comments below!!
In all past years, the â€œXâ€ has been a variable that can stand for any type of non-traditional Mormon (eg. liberal-Mormon, New Order Mormon, etc.). However, we had some complaints about that last year, so if you feel that we should confine the award to actual ex-Mormons, please feel free to say so in the comments.
