Sonia Johnson was excommunicated in the late 1970s for teaching people
not to let missionaries into their homes. She was pushing the Equal
Rights Amendment, which the Church opposed. She wanted to put political
pressure on the Church by having people not allow missionaries into their
homes. She refused to back down, and her bishop had no choice but to
excommunicate her for teaching a doctrine that opposed a fundamental
teaching of the Church.
Normally, this would not have been made public, but she made a big to-do
of it in the press, and the Church had no choice but to defend itself in
the media.
