Take into account that you are BIC, it would be more difficult for you to develope social skills than me (I was baptized when I was 21). So don't feel bad about it, what you are living it's normal.

At the beginning it was nice, then when you are brainwashed, they give you callings, they ask for your help all the time, you become a free janitor, and you become another victim of the not good enough syndrome. Then if you are lucky enough to realize that the church is a scam, you feel stupid for being decieved so many times by a shitty cult and you regret teaching teenagers about how a great

Today I read an article from Zelph on the shelf, and while reading it, I remember one thing (that now embarrased me a lot). Last year, one sunday I was ill with a horrible flu, coughing a lot and I could barely talk, that sunday I had to give a speech but due to my unhealthy condition I phone my bishop and told him that I wasn't going to go to church. The thing is that I didn't go because I thou

IMHO a person's life is like an unfinished building, while you are living, you are building it. You can change things on it, but you can't completely destroy anything on it. Mormonism is one of those things, from 2015 to march 2017 it was my religion, it defined my way of living in a major way. Now that I'm out, it is also important in my life but in a very different way, being in that cult made

Even though I thought that I was a real follower of christ when I was a TBM, that ended when I realized that mormonism is a cult, which only wants the 10% of the brethren's income. After that I became agnostic but I still think that the Jesus of the bible has some good values, he's not a guy whose church's most valuable things are silly handshakes and BS.

I found a solution to social media, on Facebook I'm a peaceful guy who only speak bad of TSCC in a closed ExMo group and on Twitter I'm a free ExMo, who says whatever he wants.

I'm so sorry, I know how it feels, I lost my cat last sunday, he was severely injured by a dog and watching him die was terrible, the image of him trying to get up and walk despite the fact that he couldn't move his back legs was one of the saddest things I've ever seen in my life. When he died I was sad because he was a great cat, but at the same time I was happy for him because I knew that he

Today I was peacefully checking Twitter when I read a tweet from a TBM which said that the mormon church doesn't force people to go on missions which made me angry and then of course I replied. That made me think a lot about how TBM's use social media as if they were Europe in the world's wars (#FightingEvil and other Us vs Them stuff), which "inspired" me to make a list about the re

Yes, I remember what all the endowed people in my stake told me about the endowment, how a precious blessing it was and how they could learn a lot of the precious parts of the gospel going to the temple. They made me think that it was like classes where you learn through the use of symbols (those classes changed each session/day), but when I read about it for the first time it dissapointed me and

Truth is a nebulous term... And holy ghost too, It became the influence of the devil when you feel that you must do something that your Bishop, SP or some high priest don't want you to do it (then you'll listen the famous words: because the spirit, which is in me told me...).

I used to think that endowment ceremonies were classes where you learn the most important things of the gospel. So your idea of being open places where gospel topics are discussed isn't mad for me, what's more I think it's far better than all the masonic BS. Despite this I think TSCC wouldn't open its temples to everyone because they are used to brainwash people to give everything to the chur

Not going to a mission will damage permanently your eternal progess. The endowment ceremony will make you a better person. You must go to a mission to develope yourself in order to return and choose a right worthy lds lady to become your eternal partner. By my bishop (all in the same day, my last day in the cult)

Hie, what's happening in my area (Buenos Aires north mission) is that TSCC is baptizing people but these people don't stay for a long time, perhaps if you see the membership numbers you can see that there is some growth but I bet that the real growth in my area is less than 1%. And I think that the same is happening in the other urban areas in Argentina. In the rural areas, I don't know what's

Number of people (LGBTQ or not) that commit/attempt suicide because of the church's beliefs/practices. Number of members who commit crimes related with violence against women or sexual crimes. Number of members who commit fraud. That's for sure.

I guess catnip was using the words that she used for describing those people at that time, just like I called them douchebags, even though some of those douchebags became better people and I also called myself sh#t. I just used those tough words because they were good for describing that moment and I guess catnip did the same thing.

No, but you made me remember that when I was a priest I used to create all kind of blessings (because all the people said, prepare yourself to be an elder, elders can give super duper blessings), so I created all these blessings such as blessings to be attractive for women, to be good at sports, to stop being bald, to stop having smelly feet and all kind of funny things.
