Superb succinct 6:30 minute YouTube clip that summarizes how it's all falling apart AND the Swedish "Rescue" transcript.

Unfortunately, I am stuck attending church every week for the sake of my marriage. I no longer partake of the sacrament, and I'm sure people notice - particularly when my young son asks my wife in a loud whisper, "Why isn't daddy taking the sacrament?"

I'm often surprised by the number of posters who begin their post with, "long time lurker, first time poster..."

While streaming the broadcast live on my windows media player, I sat at my wonderful new IBM clicky-keyboard and wrote the following. Every so often I would get bored and would look over to the video to see the deathly panic in the eyes of the apostles speaking. This was truly a VERY BORING - UNINSPIRING BROADCAST.

A Mormon disabled friend called me today. He and his wife had a meeting with their SP [stake president] last night. is SP told them the church was starting a new missionary program where the missionaries would be at the chapel every day giving tours of the building, lessons to investigators and less active members.

Instead of paying tithing the last 5 years, I saved the money and paid off the house this week. Woohoo!!!!!!!!

So, somehow LDS Inc has NOT subtly taken out or changed the wording in D&C 132, which to me is one of the most appalling and testimony damaging official, church approved literature out there.

The CRA info. reveals that the LDS Church has played a money shell-game with "tithes and offerings" from duped and sacrificing Canadian members. Latter-day Saints have been kept in the dark by Mormonism's senior priesthood leadership about how their donated funds have been used. Thankfully, regulations in Canada and some other nations have forced the "true" corporation partially pull back its financial curtain.

From the Flip-Flop-It "Prophet":
Gordon B. Hinckley defends historic doctrinal Mormon racism but says he doesn't understand the basis for it.

My neighbor, who also happens to be 1st counselor in the bishopric, stopped by tonight to drop off a Hersey's bar with a Happy Father's day note. He was with two of his sons and he was still full suit and tie. Mind you this was 3 1/2 hours after their block ended. A nd his car was gone for most of the day. I 'm so glad he got to spend time with his kids on Father's day. Anyways, I appreciate the chocolate and all. But I couldn't help being reminded about the recent posts on here about how they are going to try and reactivate the inactives.

That's something that always bothered me about the church. My family was pretty well off. We lived in a nice sub-division full of dr's, dentists, lawyers. One part of our ward was across a busy street in another sub-division. It wasn't poor like a slum, it was just more middle and lower class. Or so I was often reminded by my family and other ward members.

I resigned my membership in the Church a few months ago. My wife and kids are still active. My son turns 14 later this month, and a few weeks ago, I met with our bishop to express my desire that he not discuss the private details of my children’s sexuality during his interviews with them.

Excellent post by Steve Bloor, a former bishop, showing tithing is not a voluntary donation but coercion by a fraudulent organisation. I have his permission to re-post on this board. In my own case I was conned out of far more than the figure stated in the title but that ($100,000) would be typical for many, low for some and high for others.

First of all, what kind of a question is this, and what relevance does it have? I was asked this by a missionary who randomly knocked on my door and I informed them that I am an exmormon and have resigned my membership. We discussed some doctrinal issues. At one point he asked if I was happier being out of the church, as if to imply that if I felt less happy, it was a result of rejecting the "truth" and no longer having the "spirit".

In the final death-throes of apologetic responses to the decimating DNA, the church’s official unofficial scripture-twisting BYU-funded excuse makers have claimed that we wouldn’t expect to find Lamanite DNA because it has been diluted away beyond detection. Yes, these prophet-dismissing testimony tramplers now believe that the disappearance of Lamanite genes is sort of exactly what they expected based on their latest twist of scripture.

So I'm completely breaking the rules by even reading this site but I have an iPod touch and no one needs to know. I am currently serving a mission, like I'm in the field right now. I have been out a year and have found I can't wait till its over so I can go home and start a new life, without the church. I find it hard to believe any of the crap I'm supposed to be teaching. I came on my mission mostly out if the old "Mormon guilt" trick for putting my parents through hell as a teenager.

After deciding to leave TSCC [this so called church], my Wife and I are finding it hard to believe ANYTHING that has to do with Christianity. It sounds so strange to say (to me at least), but I don't think I believe in any of that stuff (Jesus, Bible, etc) after discovering the fraud of TSCC.
