Cultural norm, is it not, that obit publish the spouse/significant other of the immediate survivors? When my dad died it was listed as, survived by "daughters, GOKeefe (insert name here), Sister2 (insert name here), etc..."<quoted text>
Let's talk about that. So far, based upon what I know of the situation, which is admittedly little, the information from the obit would have identified a same gender individual as her "partner".
No mention of them having sexual relations in the obit whatsoever, I would presume.
So what exactly do they have "proof" of that violates Church doctrine sufficient to justify her being discharged?
That was 28 years ago, too.
