"Ms. Kelly and Mr. Dehlin were notified of the action against them on two consecutive days, leading them to suspect that the move was coordinated by officials in church headquarters in Salt Lake City."
The Church denies this in the press with these words. "Decisions are made by local leaders and not directed or coordinated by Church headquarters."
The evidence does not support that statement by the Church. The decision may be executed by local leaders, but I know for a fact, and so do many others that the decisions don't always originate at the local level.
