I was forced to go to church until I was 16. Every sunday I got dressed up in ridiculous, uncomfortable clothes and forced to waste a perfectly good sunday listening to a grueling marathon of religious rhetoric and human psycho babble.

The church of jesus christ of latter day saints was the bane of my young existence. In terms of churches it has to be the worst one. The Sabbath starts out with something called 'Sacrament' which is an hour meeting where members of the congregation give "talks" and "bare their Testimonies" which is about as much fun as heat stroke. sometimes people would even cry about how "god" touched their lives, sometimes these people that cried were even men. I have never invested much in the idea of the status-quo but seeing a grown man blithering away about the wonders of 'god' was both baffling, unsettling and nearly impossible to not piss your trousers laughing at.

Usually most churches end at this point, but mormons are like, really, faithful/dishonest with themselves, so they ride it out for another 2 1/2 hours... the only thing more boring than mormon church would be listening to Ben Stein read Karl Marx.

My time is a valuable thing. I am currently averaging about 25$ an hour, and I believe given what I have been through the only fair thing to do for all parties involved is to retroactively bill The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for my current wage for all the time lost.

by my estimations for 3 hours every sunday for 16 years they will be owing me...

$62400.00

for some reason I feel that isnt enough but what ever... I will photo document my mailing of the bill, and post their payment response for your viewing pleasure.

Ahhh, I don't get to sue anyone. I'm a natural atheist. Wait... that's a good thing isn't it? Maybe I can sue the Church of Kent for ruining my Halloween every year I was in College.

If I could bill fundamentalist christianity for the first 19 years of my life (the entire 19 years) I would be a billionaire. Of course I would sue for emotional/psychological trauma as well.

I wish we all could get reimbursements for time wasted in religious cult services.
