    [–] Before you go, TBM leaders warn you that leaving their church will likely cause divorce. Broadpostjudkins 27 points ago in exmormon

    Agree with the comment about many relationships being based on the church, not an actual relationships.

    Product of many (not all) of the marriages that result from the whirlwind ”meet/date/marry ASAP” culture at the BYUs

    [–] Well, I just got I unfriended again. Sorry for the long post Broadpostjudkins 6 points ago in exmormon

    No offense, but this is your fault.

    You shouldn’t have used logic and backed it up with facts.

    They don’t like that.

    [–] Help in Boise... Broadpostjudkins 1 points ago in exmormon

    Have actually been to a baptism in the Boise River. Was at Albertsons park I think. But you’re right, too cold now

    [–] IMO if your religion is to discriminate against other people, you don’t get religious freedom Broadpostjudkins 1 points ago in exmormon

    Seems like you are mixing up concepts.

    Point of the post, which I tried to clarify, was I’m not down with people discriminating against others and then claiming religious persecution when they get called on their shit.

    But honestly, based on this obvious misinterpretation/refusal to listen to clarification/inflammatory rhetoric, and other comments I’ve seen you post, I’m starting to think you are just trolling, so going to take everything else you say with a grain of salt...

    Whoa, chill out.

    Maybe I should have phrased it differently, so here goes;

    It’s upsetting to me that TSCC and many other religious organizations have ideologies that allow/encourage discrimination against homosexuals/minorities/women, and if you try to go against that, they claim foul/that they are somehow being discriminated against (ever heard of Prop 8?).

    If you really do have a counterpoint to this, please make it, I’d be fascinated to hear it.

    Otherwise, I apologize for my lack of specificity.

    [–] Imma just leave this here... Broadpostjudkins 2 points ago in exmormon

    Was actually just thinking about this. May or may not be able to reconcile with spouse if they stay believing, but if our kids end up staying in TSCC, the onus is on us to not let that get to us and still love them no matter what.

    [–] Health in the navel, marrow in the bones Broadpostjudkins 2 points ago in exmormon

    Hahaha.

    Think TSCC was pissed when Viagra was invented, because they didn’t like the competition????

    [–] 6% of US Senators are mormon, less than 2% of the country is mormon. 4 of 21 (19%) of the members of the Senate Judiciary committee conducting the Kavanaugh hearing today are mormon. Man, that group think/block voting is doing wonders for our country. Broadpostjudkins 1 points ago in exmormon

    Fair enough, will go to a different sub if wanting to discuss politics.

    That said, I am finding the discussion between hotexmo and ladyofLA very interesting. I’m probably in the Dem’s court on this one, but am learning more about the alternate view from the conversation.

    But will keep things here non-political going forward

    Appreciate the attempt to keep the peace, wasn’t trying to divide the exmo community.

    Rather was focusing on the fact that Mormons generally vote as a block and in doing so can somewhat-unfairly get outsized political representation in a democratic government.

    It’s probably very similar to how the “evil” missourians felt about the mormon presence in Jackson County a long time ago.

    My issues with TSCC aren’t solely because of fake visions and JS marrying 14 year olds. Their group think mentality did, and still does an insane amount of damage to society.

    Point taken about not starting a political throw down, but at the same time, forced/fake unity is what was forced down my throat in elders quorum.

    Seems if we assume we are all adults we can disagree with each other and still be civil/ultimately united in a common cause.

    Just my 2 cents.
