***Update As Requested***
I wrote an exit letter to the Stake President and handed in at the start of April, details of which can be found here...http://exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,1961200,1968987#msg-1968987
I received a reply last week, which was actually mostly pleasant, nice and inviting but still laced with some bullshit.
He basically said he was sad that I had left and wished me luck in whatever I do in life (which I think he genuinely meant). Lot of wording about inviting me to stake conference or to the local ward where 'i can settle in with ease to many welcoming members'. And asked me to think of my baptism, covenants I made at temple and to study the BOM again.
The only comment he made on my hatred of the family in previous branch, especially his calling as BP, was that changes take time to settle down, and the Stake Presidency agreed together it was the right decison (which I happen to know is BS, they were never consulted - SP made the change because the guy likes to suck his cock and is a yes man).
In another update - the week before last I managed to get all of the young adults from the Branch (and most of them left when I left, only a couple still go, even though it is not often) out drinking. We started at one members house for predrinks, and it was flowing hard. We even had pics taken of us holding drinks and stuck up on facebook. Ended up in the pubs and nightclubs and all in a bad state, but man we had so much fun. The legend that my previous branch president is even took the pics we had on facebook and shared them to the Branch page, with the caption "Good to see the young ones together again even if it's not at church!" or something like that, I can't see it I'm blocked from the page for causing trouble hehe. Anyway apparently the new branch president wasn't happy about us all being out and can see it's crumbling. He is apparently not well and struggling to cope. I have no guilt in saying I wish him and his family dead, world would be so much better off without them.
The counsellor to BP is hating every moment of it (and his wife was one of the ones I had out drinking!) and decided he can no longer deal with it and asked to be released and leave the Church. This was to happen tomorrow, however has been talked round. I'm confident he will leave in time.
Without any young people, the Branch will never grow. It's a darn shame as we had it working great for a couple of years. Amazing what one peice of shit family can do to destroy something.
