Re: New to the website

This is a great place with some fun people. I love the humor. I’m mostly a lurker. However, when I read your post it brought me back to when I started questioning things. I feel for anyone going through this whole transition thing. The folks on here know what you are going through. It’s seems no one...

Re: Inspired by Apologeticsislying's post about lack of inspiration

I have definitely come to recognize the value of religion for many people. It doesn't work so well for those who lack or lose the ability to suspend disbelief, to take orders from people who claim man-behind-the-curtain authority, and for those who just can't believe in a personal God. But 90-plus ...

Re: The church blows my mind again

Hey everyone, It’s been ages (years I’m sure) since I posted but today I had an experience that has pulled me out of lurker status... I’m the financial clerk and just met with the bishop to do tithing and cut a few checks. He mentioned that since all this pandemic stuff has started he’s seeing an u...

Re: Conference What Will The Prophet Say

Wonder how the 'church' is doing with its stock portfolio since the market is down 35%? Internally they're talking about what a bad business decision it would be to dip into this money for charitable use in a depressed market, even though they legally claim it as a charity. Better wait until hard t...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Is everyone carrying emergency bottles of consecrated olive oil so that you can give yourself and your loved ones a quick dab of protection? Feel free to add in some cinnamon oil for a nice holiday smell. Might as well bless some clove oil for those having toothaches. All kidding aside, what a marv...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

I like how my mormon friends keep saying “he did say it would be a conference to remember!” Like this is the reason for that. If it were and he had previous knowledge of this, he’d be a real jerk for not telling people to be prepared or alerting authorities 😂🤷‍♀️ I’m too am so tired of hearing “he ...

Re: New member

Welcome! Based on your profile name and picture I would guess you are in your 40’s? That movie made an impression on most teenagers in the 80’s. I just turned 54. Back in the day Chevy Chase was my favorite actor. Christmas Vacations and Fletch movies were the best. There were some gems like Spies ...

Re: The core of my mormon trauma

I’m new here. This whole thread has been therapeutic. I use to think all the people leaving the church were a bunch of wackos. Haha, now I’m one of them. Seriously, what well thought out postings here. I can relate so well to everything that has been said. Thanks for your time and effort in these po...

Re: How do you make them understand?

Something has to break internally for them to want to know, and then it's game on. And that is the moment that I find so fascinating. Some people have a very slow, gradual burn, but many of us can remember the exact moment when the rope stretched so tight it finally snapped and we understood that m...

Re: New member

Moon River! Welcome Fletch! I've been out for a couple of years but I remember well the pain I went through to get here. I still have family and friends that are TBM and some that are in transition. This is the best site on the web for good people trying to make sense of it all and work their way t...

This is my first post. I’ve been reading this site for about a month. Everyone seems so nice. There are some really nice, supportive people here. Been a member my whole life. But, I’m sensing some things just aren’t right. And there isn’t anyone in my circle that I can talk to about it. My whole wor...
