She emailed asked me where I was going to watch conference, I told her I wouldn't be watching it. She, of course, asked why (assuming I normally watched it which I don't lol) and I told her because I have recently learned some interesting thing about TSCC [this so called church] and I know it isn't true.

Although in email, I swear I could hear her gasp! She responded with the typical TBMs brainwashed response, " You are obviously under the influence of Satan! I have a testimony of the church and feel very blessed by my choice to be endowed and sealed to (DH) and kids. JS is a true prophet and honest man.. chosen by God. You've been lead astray just like the prophets said we would if we doubted or looked at those evil websites. That's why you've lost the spirit. So Good luck with all of that, I hope you find what you're looking for." LMAO!!! Oh don't worry, I finally have! ;-)

She also told me that it was by looking up anti mormon stuff, that is why Satan has me where he wants me. Haha. I calmly explained that there is a huge difference between anti information and facts.

Its so easy to see the brainwashing when your out. I felt like asking her how many times she's bent over and whispered the religious chat into her children ears to repeat and burn into her kids minds, I'd like to bear my testimony, I know this church is true, JS is a true prophet..." OMG! Cults number one tactic... REPETITION! And that is what TSCC is all about... repetition.

What other responses have people got?

Satan is just a boogyman meant to keep you from doubting. It's all very simple, you see.

1. Create a fake doctrine that promises something very appealing.

2. Find some gullible idiots who will believe your story. It would also help if you're charasmatic and good at manipulating people.

3. Once you get enough gullible idiots believing, they'll likely try to get their friends and family to convert.

4. Eventually, you'll get a pretty good sized group if you're good at what you do. Then your followers will reproduce, and indoctrinate their offspring with your doctrine.

Re: TBM friend told me "I'm under influence of Satan" because I told her I no longer believe...
Holy cow. I'm not sure what I'd do if someone tried to perform an exorcism on me. I'd figure they'd lost their mind. That would be extremely unnerving.

People are SO crazy! *swears
My TBM aunt told me that I was under the influence of Satan when I was 9 months pregnant because I wasn't going to church and she thought my baby was going to have "something wrong with it" because I wasn't being a faithful member. I told her she was a fucking crazy bitch and I never wanted to talk to her again. I haven't talked to her in 7 months and it feels good!
