John Mulkey joined Barton Stone’s reform after leaving the Baptists. He began preaching Stone’s restoration gospel; however, eleven years after leaving the Baptists, Baptist records state that he had been excommunicated because of his newfound teachings. Mulkey had kept silent about the details of his departure until his character was impugned in their records. His reply was to write a circular describing his reason for leaving the Baptist church—which was the belief that his religious liberty had been violated.
