Thanks for the sweet greeting. I have denied it was the reason for my depression for so long. It's great to find this community! :)

Thanks for the Welcome! Under the banner heaven was an interesting and distrubing read. We heard a movie is going to made based on the book so thought we should read it.

Yes. I lost my faith at a very young age. I never had a testimony and I never once felt "the spirit".

Raised in a batshit crazy TBM home, I had to "walk the walk and talk the talk" under the threat of great physical violence and possible death. (I'm not fucking kidding.)

I'm still convinced to this day that my mother was capable of Filicide.

Fuckin' crazy cunt.

I saw this on a shirt on "The Cult of Dusty" and figured I'd snag it before anyone else.

Thank you for your kind comments.


I think all ex-Mormons should share their exit stories to counter what appears to be an increasingly powerful influence of the church. Because my spouse is an active Mormon, I see the near-daily Mormon Times newspaper. It's clear that the church has become much more sophisticated about its "brand".  


I'll try to figure out the Exit Stories page.

hmm... interesting... well, I have made it clear. I guess, part of the reason as to why they want me back so badly is because my husband left with me, and he is a 5th gen. Mormon...
Apart from that, back when I was contacted on the street it was actually the Mission President ! ;)
Maybe it's a combination of everything ?

same here... I told them, If they didn't stop with what I felt was harassment, I was going to first of all contact the police, and second of all, contact Church Headquaters in Frankfurt Germany, for I'm sure they'd like to know what's going on.. !

thanks, but I am still trying to overcome the harassment from Members, even Church leaders and esp. Missionaries ! :O

Please excuse me for being so late to respond to your welcome and your question. :-( I'm not usually so cavalier about checking my mailbox, but sometimes I just sort of ignore it for a while, and for the last few weeks things have been rather hectic.

I became an ex-Catholic before I became an ex-nun  I left in the height of Vatican Council Two, in the early wave of what became today's mega-shortage of clergy and religious. I stayed past the time when I stopped believing the doctrines of the Catholic church because I was a year away from my undergrad degree, and I figured that after ten years I deserved a B.A. The church was getting a little skittish about people beginning to leave, and the vatican reps weren't giving easy approval for release from final vows. A couple of my classmates were told to wait a year; I only asked permission for my parent's sake; had they said no I'd had left anyway. My reason was I didn't believe in God any longer, so they gave me their seal of approval. The early seventies were a wonderful time for me of coming to understand the meaning of "sisterhood is powerful" in the face of the oppression of women in the church and in society. I went on to explore a dozen different religion and spiritualities, finally sort of settling in to an eastern non-duality niche.

I became interested in the mormons when one of my litereacy students told me she was being visited by missionaries and asked me to give her some information. I told her I didn't know much, but I did think that her being black, bisexual and a single mother wasn't quite wasn't quite state-of-the mormon art. I started reading and couldn't stop. That was five years ago, and I'm still fascinated.

So that, in a little bit more than a nutshell, is why I became an ex-nun. I figure I have something in common with ex-mormons
