The Salt Lake Tribune reports that several Mormon men have telephoned death threats to Edwin B. Firmage for publicly advocating the ordination of LDS women to priesthood office. Two days earlier the Tribune reported that those remarks by Firmage, University of Utah law professor, former bishop, and grandson of former First Presidency counselor Hugh B. Brown. However, there are no church sanctions against Firmage.
