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.

I said slimeball, to which another person said...
You are being to kind in calling him a slime ball, Joseph Smith is the unholy paedophile fetid offspring of a syphilitic whore's mount possessed only of a rat's knackers and the lousy sister of swindler with all the charm of diseased hag fish's bumhole.
A new name I saw today......

Joni, I also couldn't get up and say I knew the church was true, because logically, I didn't. I only believed. I knew it was a belief and not knowledge.
Glad your brain kicked in, Joni!
I'd have to say that 3 things that made a big hit in my desire to be a mormon were:
1) That convenient revelation that black people were OK being let into the church. I never understood why they weren't allowed in.
2) 'Testimony Sunday'... I just couldn't get up there and say the words that this was "the one true church and Joseph Smith is a true prophet (yada yada)". I just didn't feel right about any of this...
3) In an interview prepping to go on a mission they asked me if I masturbated... WTF! After that interview I never went back.
Guess you could say that walking out of the church that day was the first big step down the yellow brick road to atheistvill.
All Hail James Randi! A true revelator.
Revelations are so timely huh?
"I feel a revelation coming on." Good one, Patricia.
That's why I use the term, morons.
A more likely exchange:
Mormon 1 - "Gay Mormon teens are committing suicide in record numbers because of our homophobic doctrine."
Mormon 2 - "They're killing themselves? So what's the problem?"
Interestingly the first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, includes a critical depiction of some of the early Mormons' misdeeds.
As Kurt Andersen said of The Book of Mormon in Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire, "It's a doozy."
