"I know that this is the church of jesus christ of latter day saints." And it was the a member of the bishopric... TOO funny.
I actually laughed out loud and my spouse was not happy about that.
What are some of the funny things that you've heard in testimony meeting?
Re: Funniest thing heard in testimony meeting
Beautiful quiet Sunday morning. Just made some coffee and read the paper. Will probably fix pancakes when the kids wake up. I'll mow the lawn later this morning but its cool outside so it should be less of a chore. Maybe we'll go for a picnic or something later on today.

I hear "you've changed" often enough to get me thinking about if I have actually changed or not.
I may have written about this before, but oh well.
Some parts of me are exactly the same as when I was a TBM. I fear the same things, I still enjoy the same hobbies, and I still have the same personality traits.
Formerly known as TBM Dec. 2011
I didn't expect things to turn out the way they did. After taking
the missionary discussions and with the support and
prompting of my friends and a few family members I was
baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints at the age of 14. It was a time of great happiness
but also of heartache. I radically changed my life in order to
June 2010. Like many here, I feel that the LDS church has stolen my youth, my family, my sexuality, my personality, and my sanity. I sporadically post under my real name, but for this post I want to be anonymous and have altered a few non-essential details.
I am a 58 year old woman who finally left the Mormon Church about 6 years ago. My parents joined the Mormon Church when I was 10 months old so I was raised in the church.
Thank you very much for your website. It gave me a lot of useful information on my way out of the Mormon church. I´m also very glad to be able to communicate to other exmormons.
Now, this is my story. Please, only use my nickname.
This is an edited version of a Manifesto I originally wrote in 1997. It was for myself, a form of venting some frustration. What I have deleted here are mainly many quotes and so forth that I leave the reader to find elsewhere.
Thoughts on Mormonism
There have been some people who have asked why I have given up on the
religion that I grew up with. That’s a good question and it deserves a
thoughtful answer. Had you asked me that question a couple of years ago I
would have shrugged and said that I just didn’t feel it in my heart anymore.

I was baptized in 1985 aged 10 going 11.I never knew or heard of any temple garments that mormon wear until I was aged 15,yet I was active until that time.It was not until 1996 aged 21 when I left Mormonism that I learnt that mormon wear garments to be worn in order to receive a temple recommend by their bishop etc.

There are many "proofs" that the church isn't true. But in my mind three of them stand out above the rest.
1-Racism. Blacks and the priesthood, lamanites cursed with a dark skin, preoccupation with lineage and blood of Israel. One word, Vile.
Non Mormon peopel are commenting saying that church is about money making and like Scientologists.
I've noticed the same thing with a music video on youtube
One comment said something like, "What's the deal with the mormon ad in the corner" (I'm paraphrasing)
I can't think of a one. Do even the JW's do that? Got to hurry up and put the leash and collar on, then apply the thumb screws. "Yes please, sir, turn it tighter!"
Re: Name any other religious org that presses for baptism ASAP like Moism does?

I went to a Real Salt Lake soccer game recently. Their main sponsor is "Xango"
It's suggested that Smith got the word "Nephi" from here or there, and the story of Lehi's migration to America from a stream in the Arabian Peninsula. On and on. One thing's for sure: He sure didn't get it from real life.
I've met so many that pride themselves on the ability to look the other way when evidence contrary to their position is presented
