It’s time to vote for X-Mormon of the Year 2015!!!

Note: Submit your nominations for the Brodie Awards!

Wow, have we got an impressive set of X-Mormons this year!! Vote here:

Here are some details about the nominees:

Any Opposed : The organization that stood up and voiced opposition in General Conference (after the traditional request of “any opposed?”)
Ryan McKnight a.k.a. FearlessFixxer : The first person to inform r/exmormon and John Dehlin of the new policy regarding the children of Homosexual couples.
Alan Rock Waterman : A blogger excommunicated for apostasy in 2015.
Marisa and Carson Calderwood : A couple excommunicated for apostasy in 2015.
Lindsay and Kirk Van Allen : A couple of bloggers disciplined in 2015 for writing posts opposing polygamy. Note: It is an error that Lindsay is not listed with Kirk in the above poll. (I’m not totally sure I can fix it without wrecking the current totals — I apologize for the above error.)
Mark Naugle a.k.a. Chubs Gato : The attorney who did the paperwork pro bono for 2500 resignations from the CoJCoL-dS in the wake of the disastrous policy change.
John Dehlin : A popular blogger and community organizer, John Dehlin makes a big splash every year, but in 2015 he was excommunicated.

I predict this will be an exciting race!

The polls will remain open until Friday, January 22, 10:00 a.m. Switzerland time. Vote early, vote often! Kidding!!! Please vote only once per person — and you know their limitations — so you’re kinda on the honor system. 😉

And don’t forget to submit your nominations for the Brodie Awards — for the best LDS-interest content of 2015!!!

    Why are both Marissa and Carson listed but just Kirk is listed?

    @1 If Kirk’s wife was disciplined along with him and was not included in his nomination, it’s an error. Just tell me her name, and I’ll edit the post.

    Just curious, where is Kate Kelly…or any other single woman? Can I still nominate Kate?

  4. Kirk Van Allen says:

    My wife’s name is Lindsay. Thank you for including here she has done so much work with me.

    Thanks for including me as part of this vote. I’m glad I’m at the bottom of the rankings. Everyone else has done way more than I have. I’m honored for my wife and I to be considered. Thanks.

    @3 Kate Kelly won last year.

    I was also disappointed to see that no individual woman was nominated this year. However, if you’ll look at the list of winners in our sidebar, you’ll see that of the six years we’ve given this award, three of them were won by women, which I think is a pretty decent ratio. 😀

    @4 Thanks for the clarification — I apologize for my error in preparing the polls. I’m glad to help get you guys a little tiny bit of extra end-of-the-year recognition for your efforts! 😀
