121: Peter and Mary Danzig Pt. 3 - Removed from the Orchestra at Temple Square, Silenced, Threatened with Discipline, Resigning from the LDS Church
In this episode Peter and Mary Danzig discuss Peter’s removal from the Orchestra at Temple Square because of his letter to the editor opposing professor Jeffrey Nielson’s termination from BYU (over Dr. Nielson’s public support of gay marriage). They also discuss his local church leadership’s request for silence, the threats of church discipline, his and Mary’s ultimate decision to resign from the LDS Church, and Craig Jessop’s resignation as Director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The music from this episode was played live during the interview. For more about the Danzig’s music, check out their web site here.
