Fun Fact: The Deseret News used to publish the names and locations of excommunicated members. Yay God!
Can someone please help me understand this? This just doesn’t seem Christlike at all...
Let us discuss. . . .
I know we don’t like the “exmormon” selfies much around here, but this one did give me a pretty good laugh. Faithful believer or critic, I think we can all appreciate the humor of this one.
Jesus ain’t no snitch
My wife made a handwritten silhouette of the Salt Lake temple for her parents. All of the letters and words you see are the names from their family history. Beautiful Christmas gift.
Don't know where else to post this

1949 First Presidency Proclamation
Comparison I made with temple recommend questions change.
One more - The prevalence of the word President vs Prophet in conference has really changed a lot, diverging in 2005.
Here's where these practices began, Elder Ballard. From The First 12 Weeks on lds.org [x-post from /r/exmormon]
[Meme][Meta] Heck Yeah!
Wait a minute!
The Mormon church is excommunicating this family for creating a post-Mormon support group.
Nevada gets it. Settlements can no longer conceal a sex offense
x-post from r/byu: Walkout next Friday to reform the honor code office!
This doesn't seem right to me.
Academic job posting from BYU removed apparently because BYU's operation/honor code is inconsistent with [their] scientific integrity and professional ethics policy.
The Church is contemplating worthiness interviews for CHILDREN!!!! [Survey] [x-post from /r/exmormon]
We believe that we have the authority of Christ, with a living prophet. If you don't believe that, get a testimony of it or leave the Church. In the meantime, shut up about it during meetings.
This is Fawn M. Brodie, one of the first tenured female professors of history at UCLA. She wrote a biography of Joseph Smith titled No Man Knows My History, published in 1945. In 1946, the LDS Church excommunicated Brodie. She described it as liberating. We should honor our heroes.
No more Masturbation questions!!! Mandated by a visiting 70 in a stake in northern Utah.
A friend from the ward I grew up in is giving his homecoming talk today and I want to see and support him. I was ordained a Buddhist minister a couple months ago. Church should be fun.
That’s a pretty good point...
Not included in the Conference Report? I can’t imagine why.
Church Leaders aren't sure...
The cape is going to Disney Land today. Hopefully, the happiest place on earth will allow it to stay on my back all day.
19th century Mormon missionaries targeted European girls with promises of perfect lives in America. They were poor, uneducated and desperate get away from the misery. Once they were trapped in Utah, they were bartered for like cattle to serve men with sex and hard labor. This is SEX TRAFFICKING.
Last one for today. The juxtaposition of the I’m a Mormon add campaign with Russ’s little tissy fit over the church name is about as silly as it gets.
Take that Atheists!
Any time a mormon is nice you, you need to consider if they're only being nice because they've been given an assignment to be nice to you. There is nothing wholesome about this at all.
A firm foundation of folk magic and deception.
One Year ago, 1,000 of us faced off the Mormon Church to Protect Children. Join us again Oct 5, 2019
How it felt looking at this sub after today...
I grok why I'm microtargeted to see FAIRMormon ads all over Reddit, whatever. But can someone explain the thought process that selects this image as worthy of promotion? If I had to guess what this ad was selling, my guess would be 'boredom'.
Mormon superhero origin story
I've been in 13 Mormon temples since I resigned from LDS, Inc. in 2002. I've recorded w/ hidden cameras numerous temple ceremonies including baptisms for the dead, washing and anointings, a sealing ceremony, four different endowment movies (and one LIVE session), and have posted them online. AMA
I updated my map of where Mormons live
We fled to Mexico for Asylum
Just a reminder: this was Oliver Cowdery's means of receiving revelation.
As a member in the middle of a faith transition, this makes me sad.
SLC...I'm finally on my way. The 29th is going to be a big day.
Good religious take on why God created (or in Mormon parlance, allowed) atheists
What does it mean that Boyd K. Packer’s legacy is being hidden, suppressed and erased by the new crew in charge of the LDS church?
A way to get an indication of mormon orthodoxy/fundamentalism through the years
Rape culture, courtesy of Mormon youth dances. This and other equally horrible flyers are commonly given to 14 year old Mormon girls from the leaders they look up to at church....
With Conference coming up, don't forget to properly embellish your prayers!
Freedom of thought becomes impossible.
A map I made of the most intensely Mormon areas. The most Mormon county is Madison co., Idaho (Rexbug's county). Basically 100% Mormon.

“The Church has not favored or opposed legislative proposals or public demonstrations concerning abortion.“
Every faithful member has disagreed with someone in their ward that they nevertheless sustain. I just apply the same approach to the Q15. It's not an easy path, but it's the one I'm on.
wow this was exactly my experience in the church and now it's happening on reddit

Where are you on the Dawkins Scale?
So if the Mormon church is stockpiling 100 Billion dollars for the second coming, if they used ONLY HALF of those tax-free dollars to purchase meals for starving kids in 3rd world countries at a very generous $10 per meal, how many kids could be fed for, say 10 years?
This community might appreciate this in more ways than one!

Today is Samuel's 18th birthday. This is what you are fighting to prevent. He might still be alive if the petition was started 5 years ago. I wouldn't have been the ignorant father sending him into these interviews.
This meme is apparently so toxic that my TBM family circled the wagons when they saw it, completely overlooking the point of safeguarding children. 🤦♂️
Besides the free expression of goofy religious beliefs, wanna know what else is illegal in Russia? This goofy picture. I’m proudly exmo, I loudly reject the shifting of blame on to those who exercise their human rights, whether Protestant, Atheist, or Mormon.
Jeremy and Jim Bennett broke bread today and had a good time. Life is too short to have enemies.
Murdered on this day: 17 year old Helmuth Hübener for defying Hitler. Excommunicated from TSCC while In prison, for speaking out. He was pushed across this cement floor to a bloodstained room where he was strapped to the guillotine. BYU play honoring his memory yanked by Monson/Oaks to protect TSCC
@KenJennings: “Fellow Mormon here saying: not a great look, guys. Mormons make up 1.7% of the US population and 36% of the Judiciary Committee that voted in favor of...”
Concentrate on a different person every loop.
The church has over $1 Billion invested in big-pharmaceutical. Wonder if their opposition to legal marijuana is multi-faceted.
Sure, doubting your doubts is fun, but have you tried doubting yourself?

[META] [cropped screenshot] PM me your concerns about the church. Apostates who make the same offer are castigated and banned. If a faith will not bear to be investigated; if its preachers and professors are afraid to have it examined, their foundation must be very weak.

I got my first tattoo! It's a seal of Melchizedek and an 8-fold path. It symbolizes how I started my spiritual path in life (Mormon), and then the one I chose (Buddhist).
Yesterday I voted opposed on behalf of this 13 year old, who is now an adult.
Just do it
In support of the children, here is my sign from the march!
Mormonism presents the same problem as time travel: if we punch a date into our time machine and hit go, we wind up in some very strange places, a long way from planet Earth.
