We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

nPlans to punish the LDS Church for its hardcore, inhuman support of California’s Proposition 8 through a tourism boycott of Utah are likely to backfire (see Private Eye). Still, that church has to be slapped somehow. Problem is, how do you boycott a church?

There’s one very good way, if you’re one of the many individuals who have “fallen away,” as they say: Resign your membership.

Membership isn’t dropped automatically. Even if you’ve considered yourself a non-Mormon for many years, the church still counts you in its flock. However, it is legally required to honor member resignations.

It’s much more fun than letting them excommunicate you. (Make sure they know that you don’t want to belong to their club, not the other way around.) Check out MormonNoMore.com for helpful, step-by-step instructions and then send your letter of resignation to the following address:
