LDS Church Excommunicates Quorum of the Seventy Member

Elder James L. Hamula was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Monday. The excommunication led to the immediate release from his calling as a member of the Quorum of the Seventy.

He was called to that position in April 2008.

Church spokesman Eric Hawkins stressed the disciplinary action was not due to apostasy or disillusionment.

“This morning, James J. Hamula was released as a General Authority Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, following Church disciplinary action by the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles,” said Hawkins in an official statement.

As a senior General Authority if the Church, the disciplinary council in question was comprised of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve.

Disciplinary action is not meant to be the end of a person’s religious life and involvement in the Church. When proper repentance and cahnge has been shown, the member may return to full fellowship and standing in the Church.
