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

In another thread, RfM poster “cokezero” reports on the canned reply they received as to the unnamed individuals authorized and responsible for writing the stream of apologetic essays being frantically rolled out by a cornered Mormon Cult:

the Mormons across the street - seriously?


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.

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.

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.

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.
