This year’s contest should be pretty exciting, with all the excommunications: John Dehlin, Marisa and Carson Calderwood, Rock Waterman, and Kirk Van Allen (not sure if he was finally X’d or not) — not to mention all of the people who got gay-married!
Now, it’s not necessary to have been excommunicated in 2015 to win X-Mormon of the Year 2015 — but it doesn’t hurt. Keep in mind, though, that this is not a lifetime achievement award — it’s for the X-Mormon who made the biggest splash in 2015. Also note that it’s not a joke award or booby-prize, so please be considerate and only nominate people who would not be hurt or offended by being named X-Mormon of the Year.
After all, there are so many of us to choose from — our ranks are swelling every day!!
I will keep the nominations open until Friday, January 8, 2016, and then we will begin voting. Anyone can nominate — just leave a comment. And next week, the nominations for the Brodie Awards will begin!!
