A First Presidency letter: "It appears that some bishops and branch presidents remove the names of inactive members of their ward or branch from the Church rolls in order that the ward or branch statistical records may present a better showing... Even the fact that an individual has joined another Church is not always justifiable cause for excommunication... some wives of non-members have been exommunicated because their husbands refuse to permit them to be active."
