Hello Eric,
If you haven't heard by now I've removed my web page.
I've chosen an alias because I'm still trying to find a way to bring my page back. It was my mistake for using my real name, I felt that to do otherwise would be cowardly. I guess the joke's on me.

I was born and raised a Mormon in Southern California. My ancestors crossed the Plains in covered wagons, and I have ancestors who were married to both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young.


The Inside Story Of A Former Third Generation Jehovah's Witness

by Paul Blizard

This former Jehovah's Witness discusses the 1975 prophecy

Freedom from Fear
In the fall of 1968, a special meeting was called at the Kingdom Hall in New Albany, Indiana. Everyone was expected to be there. I sat in the front row with my best friend. We always sat there. We were ten years old and as good little Jehovah's Witnesses, we believed that all new light sent to us from the Governing body was straight from Jehovah God. There was going to be new light passed on to us tonight.

She is both a former Mormon and a former Jehovah's Witness

Dear Eric K.

I am kind of messed up by my associations with these religions. I feel for the Mormons, but I was more seduced than convinced of its truth. I don't feel so emotionally tripped by it, as my involvement was fairly brief. I did make some close friends in there though and I regret that the promise of all those family values did not take for 3 out of 4 of my close friends.

A Former Jehovah's Witness

This is an interesting story for Mormons to read - to see how JWs react to "anti-JW" material and how they treat those who leave the WatchTower. This is used with the permission of the author. He can be written to at:

A Mythical Mormon Mission

This story was a sequel which a couple of us created based on cliff hangers from the previously submitted post and this was the result. This was started by a Mr. A. Mr. E is me (Eric). We had both served missions and used that experience in creating this story. The story evolved between the two of us over a few months as we posted. A few definitions are listed for the non-Mormon who has happened to stumble on to this.

2 Nephi Chapter 5 of the Book of Mormon - Metals

I explain in my story that metallurgy in the Book of Mormon was one of the reasons I no longer believe the Book of Mormon to be a story of real people. Here is an article about a portion of the Book of Mormon - metallurgy.

In 2Ne5:5 Nephi and his family and friends separate from the Lamanites 12 years after landing in the Americas. They quickly develop a complex metallurgical culture that other civilizations in history required centuries to create. Here are the cast of characters:

Women and Child Abuse in Mormonism

Subject: My Story - Used with permission

I have been wanting to write this for a long time, I just did not know where to start. I thought that it would be best to start at the beginning. I want to say that this is my experience with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ( the Mormon church).

The Mormon Church Hides its True History

The following, along with many other articles on this web site, clearly demonstrates that it is official policy for the Mormon church to hide significant portions of its history to keep the history "faith promoting".

I am always irritated to the point of twitching every time I hear someone who is very depressed (like my mother) say, "The church is my life line. I don't know what I would do without the gospel."

Brief Stories of those Who Left the Watchtower

The paragraphs in this post are from courageous "Apostates" from one of the "One and Only True Churches of God." This was submitted by a member of our ex-Mormon mail list.

These sweet souls have to go through some many similar things as us ex-Mormons.


Private Pain, Public Purges: A History of Homosexuality at Brigham Young University

Preface to the Lecture
Below is a copy of the lecture Connell O'Donovan gave on April 28, 1997 at UC Santa Cruz on the history of homosexuality at Brigham Young University (BYU).

He has issued a formal challenge to the BYU administration to acknowledge the atrocities it has committed over the years against Queer people, publicly apologize for them, and offer monetary reparations to its victims of electric shock and vomiting aversion "therapies".
