Even if he were to be successful in this and win a law suit, I doubt this would have significant ramifications on the church membership. Most members would likely dig their heels in and claim it was the work of Satan fighting against the truth. I could see it polarizing the existing faith crisis com...

Bit in the eyes of a 12 year old boy it seems huge. Pressuring or coercing him into it could turn this into a much larger issue in his mind.

Re: My son doesn't want the priesthood

The lingering effects of testimony bother me. Also, he is without a value system if he does not have the church, and I'm not sure what that value system will be -- it's kind of disturbing. I wouldn't worry too much about them getting values outside of the church. Some of the most morally strong peo...

The nice thing about the thoughtful face and Mormon stories groups on Facebook is that they are closed groups so nobody sees what you have posted unless they're in that group.

The "A Thoughtful Faith" Facebook group is one worth checking out. I find it has a good tone, similar to this site.

It was almost a year ago that I was in a similar position with the deacons. I asked to be released and was summoned the next Sunday. FWIW it was a good experience for me. My bishop listened for a long time, let me share everything and never tried to convince me of anything. He showed love and suppor...

My comments regarding holding back were directed a little more in the direction of some of the similar articles they have released. The polygamy one for example has some room for improvement. Overall though, these are good. I would like to see them get some more publicity though. Sent from my SGH-I7...

Re: Polygamy according to Pure Mormonism

"Why I'm Abandoning Polygamy" Because it requires me to believe in a God who gives a 19th-century American man, married to the bride of his youthful choosing, a direct, specific order to break apart their marriage and her heart. I don't believe it. For me, polygamy in the church isn't about all the...
