"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."

"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…"

Currently, anything that gives me knowledge about things I thought I knew. Reading "The Transfer Agreement" about the difference between Zionism (Rothschilds, Rockefellers) and ordinary Jews, and the secret agreement deals made by the rich families and the 3rd Reich after WW2.

Favorite activity after mormonism?
Walking with my dogs through the bush (forest) and enjoying nature, watching them enjoy themselves and learning how to live in the moment from them.

You need to be a member of Life After Mormonism (exmormon) to add comments!
I actually came back to Rfm, after receiving a call from someon in the church telling me that they "needed" my address for their records. I politely told him that I hadn't been an active member of the church for 20 years. He said, "That's fine but I "need" your address." Basically, I told him it was an invasion of my privacy etc. and, just before hanging up he invited me to come to church. WHAT? I was polite but I thought he was a bit nuts to think I'd just give my address to a complete stranger. I was already pissed of that he called my home and more perturbed that he thought being a mormon meant that he really did need my address! What a load of bull.
At this point I have no contact, except when it comes to some family members. It's a difficult balance, but I still feel a few of those relationships are worth keeping. They know, I'm not in the church, but it's definitely an agree not to discuss....well...except that they tell me about church stuff and I'm not supposed to tell them about things like the fact that Jesus, if he did exist, was not a deity.
How about you? :O) p.s. read your post about abuse cover-ups. My friend I can tell you about a few of them....but not so publicly. It's so sad that that sort of thing happens.
