I haven't been to church in 10 years, haven't practiced in 20, and stopped believing 8 years ago. However, I'm just now learning a lot of the horrors of the church leaders. For instance:
The Book of Mormon teaches that sexual sins are "most abominable above all sins save it be the shedding of innocent blood or denying the Holy Ghost" (Alma 39:5).
Then Heber J. Grant said there "is no true Latter-day Saint who would not rather bury a son or daughter than to have him or her lose his or her chastity"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_chastity#Importance
I am blown away. The church thinks the only thing worse than losing your chastity is murdering someone or disbelieving in the Holy Ghost. I just cannot believe how atrocious some of their teachings are. Do Mormons really believe that it's better to die than fool around before marriage?
