Hi, I'm Annetta.
I enjoy True Crime documentaries, spending time at the beach, and hanging out with my family. I was a mormon.
My family joined the church when I was 2. I was baptized at 8. I was sealed in the temple to my ex-husband when I was 20. I was ex-communicated for having an extramarital affair w/a woman when I was 29. I rejoined the church when I was 31. I had my temple blessing restored 18 months after I was re-baptized. I have 2 children who were born in the covenant. Both were blessed and baptized at 8. My son was ordained a Deacon and then decided that church wasn't for him and quit going. My daughter was married in the temple in 2018 and is still very active.
Why I left
I had my name removed from the records in 2015 when the Policy of Exclusion was leaked. That was the straw that broke the camels back. By that point, I had been "out" (as in as a gay person) for 11 years, and I was tired of being celibate and being told that I would be "fixed" in the next life, and that there was something inherently wrong with me. I was tired of having monthly worthiness interviews to make sure I wasn't doing anything inappropriate. After I had my name removed, I started finding out about the fact that there were 4 different versions of the First Vision, and that Joseph had married 14 year olds. I found out about the "rock in the hat", and all of the REAL history of the church. My mind was blown and I was pissed. I couldn't believe I had believed all that crap for so many years.
