Church History Whack-a-mole

Come tell your own story. Don’t let other people or the church tell it for you. They have a narrative about you and why you left. By far, the narrative they tell is not the truth. This is the story that is told currently, by an apostle of the church about those who choose toRead more

LOVE: John Lennon vs Russell M Nelson

All You Need Is Love President Nelson gave a talk at General Conference April 2019. He called out some popular ideas and songs as false hope. He doesn’t believe Love will get us anywhere it seems.

He’s either not aware of the various first vision accounts, or doesn’t expect anyone elseRead more

What a couple weeks

Last week I had an inspiration from the fact that the old mormon.org website was redirecting to a new domain. Plus, I was working through writing my own exit story to help me process all the deep emotions involved in a personal faith transition. I combined the fact that I was perturbed that my oldRead more

Why such a thing should exist

The LDS Church has no healthy story of people who leave. Thomas Marsh, Symonds Ryder, Oliver Cowdery. Our manuals diminish anyone who questions the truth claims or who loses belief in and steps away. Anyone who is different is less than. Any one who questions is less than. Anyone who leaves is less than. WeRead more
