QuitMormon is back online!

Post by RubinHighlander » Fri Jan 25, 2019 7:18 pm

Some of you here are already privy to this story about QuitMormon.com, especially if you are on exMoRedit, but wanted to post up about it here on NOM in case any of you reach escape velocity.

I had used QuitMormon.com and submitted resignations for myself, DW and DD late last November. About that same time the COB decided it was no longer accepting resignations from that service. Working with Kirton/McConkie (the COBs strong arm), QuitMormon worked it out and is hopeful this new way of submission flows much faster.

The requirements now includes an uploaded picture ID and signature, which QuitMormon only used for verification and does not send to the COB.

These good folks are providing this service for free, so if you want a tax deductible donation to something more worthy than the COB, you might throw a little thanks their way.

Anything less than 10% would still be a bargain.

It's nice to know that the ID won't go any further than QuitMormon.

I went through the guy before he started QuitMormon. Two of my kids used QuitMormon. I'm glad we were able to get out before this mess arose.

And I am very, very grateful. Going through an attorney meant I wouldn't have to deal with church leaders threatening my very salvation if I left (and I probably would have caved in and not resigned because of trained obeisance to "the man").

Yes, working with local leaders is a roulette wheel, never know what you'll get. For a couple of years after sending the email to those local leaders I didn't want to be bothered. Last month a couple of former ward friends "ministers" came over and I had a very open conversation with them. I'm sure I was then labeled toxic and it will be interesting to see if anymore show up. I'm sure once my name is off the books that might also send them a sign they should not or need not come by anymore. Of course, I wouldn't put it past some new zealot in the ward that feels his or her obligation to save those that jumped off the old rusty dinghy and bring them back onto the boat. We'll see.

So true. And you never know what kind you'll get. (I was never active in that ward. I had a visiting teacher after a while, and the bishop's counselors came over about a year or so after I moved here. They thought I had just moved in. The RS pres may have come over once. So, my interaction with them was very minimal.)

Well it's the middle of Feb 2019, we resubmitted the requests with ID verification and we are still waiting. Quickmormon did it's work, now the bottleneck is at Kirton and McKonkie...
