There seem to be a few of us ex-mo's in the Nexus and it is good to share the particular intricacies of extracting oneself from Mormonism.

Church released photo of Joe's magic rock:
I just listened to a pod-cast where an ex-mormon researcher talked about all religions, but what caught my attention most was that the LDS church is the worst religion as far as giving to charity to help people's physical needs. While the best religion gives 30%, the LDS church only gives 0.7%.
Too familiar Patricia. Couldn't watch all of it. Too much stupidity.
Patricia, it's good to see some of Joseph Smith's followers being charged for having sex with children.
This past semester I went to the YSA activities pretty actively. My family moved to Utah last year and left me in Georgia to finish school. Even though I am not at all a fan of the church or the leaders, I still have friends in it. The YSAs noticed that I don't go to church anymore, but I don't think any of them know that I'm active in atheist communities. It's a strange dilemma. I don't think I should have to give up friends just because I don't believe in the religion anymore, but I'm pretty sure everyone would be uncomfortable if I was open with them. I was the president of the SSA chapter at Georgia Southern the spring semester. I was comfortably an out atheist when spoke with school officials and campus ministers, but I'm still terrified of telling the Mormons I've been friends with for years. Has anyone experienced something like this?
If you haven't already read the book "God Is Not Great" here is an excerpt speaking specifically about Mormons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9UzbucqHCc
Debra, yes, Stuart Matis was my brother.
Free thinking general authorities:
I totally agree Annie. I would often hear, "Well I love the sinner, I just hate the sin," but it's how you act towards someone that truly shows how you feel. Otherwise, like you said, it's just lip service.
