A NeverMo wearing garments...

jessupnorth Jan. 2014

So, as I NeverMo, I've always wondered what it was like to wear garments. All of my girlfriends do, and I wondered what it's like. So I got hold of some new ones for myself, and wore them for the first time today. Here are some of my thoughts;

Mormon Missionaries Targeting adolescents?

erisophia Dec. 2014

Hello! I'm brand new here.

I have never been baptized as Mormon, although I came pretty close. I'd been attending church with them for a couple of months until I realized I was being 'love bombed'

"All the women in the room will now veil their faces....."

sheepherder Dec. 2014

Why do you think the women have to veil their faces in the temple?

Is it because God is so offended at seeing their femininity that he doesn't want to see their face?

The temple is all about polygamy

rutabaga Nov. 2014

Shortly after the California Prop 8 debacle, someone made a simple comment to me. "The temple is all about polygamy." That had never occurred to me before and I went "Hmm."

Are most Mormons "passive-aggressive"?

RPackham Dec. 2014

And are new exmormons still suffering from it?

I have been reading an article from last June in the Huffington Post, by Amanda Chan, "The Secret to Dealing With Passive-Aggressive People"

"A Word of Advice to All New Female Missionaries"

Lori C Dec. 2014

I am very happy to report due to this just being brought to my attention that my post about "A Word of Advice to All New Female Missionaries" (attached below) was given or rather read to two serving Sisters and one had now come home early.

Had tithing settlement today - my kids were threatened with being burned

jonesb Dec. 2104

First off I realize that I'm dumb for still paying. That's not the point here. I'm working on it but it's complicated with a believing wife.

The bishop told my kids that if they don't pay tithing they would burn at the second coming.

Sourcing the Propaganda: How the Mormon Cult's Evasive Essays Came to Be

Steve benson Nov 2014

the Mormons across the street - seriously?

brucermalarky

There is an older couple that live across the street from us, very TBM. Our relationship with them (and other mormons in the neighborhood) basically ended 2 years ago when my wife and I left. That's what happens I guess when you leave a cult.

steve benson Oct. 2914

Before I get started, I should mention that I recently got a phone call at my work office, out of the blue, from Hatch, who was dailing me up from Provo, Utah, where he informed me he that had been hanging out at BYU with some of his 80-plus-year-old buddies.

Family Must Be Feeling It - Oct 2014 Conference

baneberry Oct. 2014

Several family members, children and parents, must have been inspired by conference and are using various approaches to talk to us. One is a walk down memory lane and how wonderful it used to be when we all went to conference together. Another is a guilt trip about how drinking coffee creates a horrible impression upon their children and they don't feel safe in our home.

Missions -- the best two years? seriously?

hopefulhusband Aug. 2014

I served a mission 20 years ago in Poland. This was a couple years after the fall of the Berlin wall and Eastern Europe was only beginning to open up to mormons. While I had some amazing un-mormon experiences, and saw some amazing historical sites, my mission could be explained as: 2 wasted years.

Not sure how to respond... wife wants to attend christian church

ZSH Aug. 2014

So my wife posed a question last night that left me unsure of how I might proceed in the future... so I thought I'd come here for some advise. We left TSCC [this so called church] a year ago and have never been happier.
