"Although, i should clarify that i was actually told by my teacher's quorum advisor that face cards were bad because they came from the tarot. He clearly didn't really know what that meant, but he compared it to role playing games like…"

"It's a conclusion i arrived at on my own through my long experience with the LDS Plan of Salvation narrative, followed after I left the church by my casual exposure and then more interested study of the Tarot. No one in the church explained to…"

"The mark of Cain is not a reference to Adam's son. It's a reference to Noah's grandson, post-flood, who was cursed when Noah was drunk. That's the story I got when I was an LDS deacon. As I mention elsewhere, it's also the…"

"I know firsthand of a bishop allowing his daughter to go through with her temple marriage even after she confessed having sex with her fiance the night before the wedding. They didn't want the scandal. I guess the Holy Ghost just kinda slept…"

Relationship Status (single, partner, etc):

My Story:
I grew up a devout Mormon in Utah. I rode with a missionary for a few months at 16 while the church dragged its their feet on replacing his companion, and became disgusted at the shallow marketing gimmicks the church used to snare people. I bore my final testimony, telling my ward that I just didn't buy it anymore, and evolved over the subsequent 18 years into an earth-worshiping, voluntarily cooperative anarchist. I'm a single father of an awesome son- my greatest achievement. I studied (university of Utah) and worked in politics for many years and made a living at left-wing agitation for a while. I really dig the tactics of radical agitprop and guerrilla theater. I'm currently going through a divorce and working as the most butch lunch lady in a Northern Utah school district, while trying to get back into a sustainable non-profit gig. So that's that.
Interests and Hobbies:
Being a dad. guitar/songwriting, radical social commentary,
Favorite Books:
Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, by John Perkins, Struggle For The Land: Native North American Resistance to Genocide, Ecocide, and Colonialism, by Ward Churchill. The Mormon Worker (Newspaper), All Quiet on the Western Front.
Favorite Movies:
Dead Poet Society, Spartacus, Syriana, It's a Wonderful Life, lots of documentaries.
Favorite activity after mormonism?
Spending Sundays anywhere other than in a box being told that everyone who is not in the club is wrong and inferior.
