More Threats of Excommunication

What's the over-under on there being a picket protest outside of Kate Kelly's stake president's office on the day of her church trial? I've heard candlelight vigils are planned, but as for the actual location where it's happening...?

Anyway, a few more LDS members are finding themselves facing church discipline and letting the world know about it, according to the New York Times. Joanna Brooks calls this the real Mormon Moment.
It is Friday and we hear nothing from our religious leaders in Salt Lake City. We hear only from the Public Relations department, which seems to be doing the best it can to get grips on a situation that has outgrown its control, a situation that makes Mormons appear once again in the public eye as the insular, suspicious, dogmatic, simple-minded, intolerant, and spiritually violent Mormon caricatures that once populated nineteenth-century magazines.
