Before anyone feels inclined to comment, please consider my rules for posting on my Personal Blog.
I do not intend to Mormon Bash. I love Mormons.
The majority of my extended family are all active True Believing Mormons. My Mormon family & friends are some of the nicest, kindest, most compassionate & generous people you could meet.
My intent in writing my thoughts down is initially to gain personal insight into my own neurology in the context of previous Mormon thinking and my evolving belief system.
I post some of those personal analyses and introspections on my Personal Blog in an effort to reach out to others who are going through a similar transition, to offer hope and inspire courage to other disaffected & questioning Mormons.
I emphasise strongly that I do not wish to deconvert anyone. I cannot do it.
My intended audience does not include those members of the Church who are absolutely sure of their testimonies & committed to unquestioning adherence to their belief system.
Please feel reassured, I cannot force anyone out of the Church, and I do not intend to.
So please, if you feel inclined to comment in an emotionally defensive & argumentative tone I will not argue with you!
I invite readers of my blog to comment with their own stories of their transition out of Mormonism or insights they’ve gained which they feel may be helpful to others questioning their faith or continuing their lives post-Mormon.
I moderate all the comments & only approve those comments which I deem to be respectful.
I will not tolerate attempts at character assassination or attacks on me or anyone else who comments.
Those comments will remain unapproved.
Instead of emotion driven thinking & comments, I value rational thought & well-considered argument.
I am not interested in hearing your testimony of the Church or any apologetics.
I will instead wish you well in your journey & bid you farewell.
This life is the only one we know we’ve got so I’m more and more focused on living it to the full with free thought, and helping others enjoy that privilege outside the constrictures of the mind control of religious indoctrination.
