Ex-Mormon Atheists


Ex-Mormon Atheists

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.

Kevin: Yes. I resigned years ago and was still contacted when my exwife wanted to get remarried. I kindly told them that I resigned and so there was no reason I would have to be involved. She then told me that the approval process was going to take awhile, so they got married civilly and plan on getting sealed in a year.

The t-shirt? There's a t-shirt? I want one.

Congratulations on your new-found status as a son of perdition Kevin ;)  I haven't gotten that far yet myself, but someday. Did you get the T-shirt?

It's official. I am no longer numbered among the saints. I have to say, I did not feel the holy ghost leave me when they removed my name from the computer. I wonder if my ex-wife will still need the first presidencies approval to get married again for time and all eternity?

@Kevin D  This site has a good template and instructions for how to handle the process.  http://packham.n4m.org/leaving.htm  Church leaders are required to handle the process confidentially, so I would stress the part about considering legal regress if they do not (do not promise more than you can deliver; threatening legal action is unnecessary at this point, but it is a good idea to make sure they know it is a possibility).  Hope it goes well for you.

3rd episode of Skeptics in Mormonville is up. We had a guest-host who was in a break off group of the FLDS! Strange enough he was allowed to drink coffee and booze. WTF?
Check it out here: Skeptics in Mormonville

Hello Apostates,  recently converted to reason, but I'm still technically a member.  I want to get more involved in supporting atheism, but I still have a lot of ties to the church.  Question is should I wait to get ex'd, or just have my name removed?  I'm leaning towards name removal.  Don't want to go through the court and waste any more time.  Any suggestions?  BTW like my Profile pic.  I got the Jesus Jammies on.

Thank you! I am trying to work with some of these groups, but mine will focus on skepticism. And the groups I have seen for that have been inactive (at least their websites) for months. Except for "drinking skeptically" which in my opinion is more of a meetup group, less of an activist group. There meetings are posted in the site calender however.

I listened to your podcast and I think it has potential.  However, there are several skeptical/atheist groups around the Salt Lake valley.
