I was raised in the church. Went on a mission which began my questioning the reality of what I had been taught. I usually work Sundays so my typical Utah ward thinks (and treats me) like I am inactive if that makes sense. My wife is super devoted so I go along to get along. Anyhow, it's good to have learned that I am not the only person who has seen behind the polished exterior of the church.

As Brigham would have said, “this is the place”.

You made a good choice joining. You'll find this a good middle of the road forum with reasonable discourse. Great taste, less bitter

We are glad you found us. We really do want to be welcoming to believers and contain less vitriol. It's be a tough couple of weeks for all of the reasons that you understand. It's been weird to see faithful Mormons show up on so that their concerns about the unfolding Joseph Bishop scandal could be aired and not censored in the faithful reddit subs.

Welcome to NOM. I'm glad you were able to scratch through the polish and I hope you can find a good balance with your wife's activity. It can be tricky.

Welcome to NOM! There are lots of us going along to get along here. Some days are fine some are unbearable. I hope you find some respite here.

Welcome! It is good to realize that you aren't crazy.
Always been the good kid, but I wanted to know more, and to find and test truth.
