John Norman still remembers being excluded from birthday parties and Boy Scouts events when he was growing up in the mostly Mormon city of Logan, in northern Utah. The memories hurt. Now a Catholic priest, Norman exemplifies the feelings and frustrations of Utah's non-Mormon minority. "They just didn't recognize that their actions left people out," Norman said. Whether they grew up here or moved to Utah from elsewhere, non-Mormons say they often feel oppressed and must struggle to be heard.

Re "Annul and Void," Aug. 20: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints places great importance on marriage and family relationships. Marriage partners are encouraged to work together to try to solve any problems that are interfering with the family's happiness and stability.
