I think it might be the status and money too!

Isn't it the spin doctors and opinion polling that inspires them?

Yeah, the further out you get the more you realise just why others see Mormons as wack-jobs. The teachings on stuff you can't ever prove are really specific, but local current issues escape the notice of supposedly inspired men.

"The planet that God lives on," boy that does sound batshit -crazy when you think about it!!! Once you break the spell, all that crap sounds insane, really insane!

They always turn their own inadequacies back on the individual. Answering legitimate questions with "it's not necessary for your salvation", "you need to pray/ have more faith" etc are cop-outs, They claim to know the name of the planet God lives on but can't answer questions about science that prove their beliefs are false.

I got sick and tired of the fluff and no substance.

Sorry, I haven't been around as I have two very busy kids. I seem to live in my car, especially at this time of year! Let me see....

Patricia---yes, I can't explain it but I just felt something wasn't right about the church at a very early age. I remember never being fully satisfied with answers to questions I had. And yes...it helps having a level headed spouse! I agree regarding the polygamists. I feel very sorry for the generational ones...they have no chance.

Oz---thanks very much for the welcome! Yes, I do believe I had a burgeoning bullshit-o-meter quite early too. I also had an older brother pulling me aside and saying things like, "The Big Bang Theories true, you know." Of course, he wasn't that much of an influence as he also used to shove me between two cushions and sit on my head. ;o)

I've been focusing on the Morg's persecution of gays a lot, and I have missed other issues surrounding TSCC. While it seems there is less of a problem of child abuse cover ups by the church in Australia and New Zealand due to the fact that Mormons don't hold all the power positions in government institutions, I was shocked to hear what life in Utah for abused children is like, especially if the perpetrator is Mormon. The Mormons in authority cover up the abuse, make secret cash settlements, and try and intimidate those trying to take action against the church. I recently listened to a podcast from the Exmormon foundation site by Linda Walker and Flora Jessop: "The Church, Child Abuse and the Law: Case Studies of Civil Complaints". I urge any of you who haven't heard this to download and listen to it.

G'day Sanity Prevailed,

Great to see more downunder exmo's! Your quick summary sounds much like mine,(also left around seventeen and had a brief rendezvous) never really bought into the whole story. I think I have always had a mild built in bullshit detection kit, which is a lot more developed these days.
Welcome to the board.

Cheers
Oz
