"Suppressing information and trying to deceive are the same as lies to my way of thinking, and they bother me a great deal also."

"Thank you for sharing your story JD!  You touched on the same points I told my SP, namely, that it was the suppressing of info and deception that bothered me more than the actual history itself."

My Story:
I was born and raised in the LDS faith. One of the hardest things I have ever done is to convince myself that something I "knew" was true, to be false. Me and my wife left the church while my son was on his mission. It was pretty devastating for him, but he is now more more accepting of his parents and can now see that we are the same, if not better. Other family members have been less accepting.
