This one and no others.

It is pretty cool being a member. I remember it taking literally years, I think almost a decade or at least a solid 5 or 6 before I created a username here. My trepidation was I didn't think I was worthy to be a full fledged board member here. That was ridiculousness on my part. And I hope some one will read this and take note if they are vacillating on creating a username here. And if this persuades them I hope they choose something I think is cool. There have been so many. It isn't a requirement. You could chose User24601 if you like as long as you join if you are thinking about it.

And think about it.

I like being a member of a board. I feel like I have something to contribute with my membership but it doesn't make me any more important than even the newest of the new people to come and anonymously post. We are all united in our need for communal help in transitioning as far away from Mormonism as we mentally, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and dare I say spiritually as we can.

So consider it.

It doesn't mean you won't be censured, banned, or immune from being called out or called a troll. It just means you've joined a community with an action that doesn't involve being on a roll, paying tithing, taking a new name for God, or getting a calling.

I hate that I'm a member of a group, some of whom accept me. But Grouncho would be pleased that there are those who'd be pleased to see me go.

Thanks of for the laugh, Saucie's boyfriend! I get a kick out of you two.

I didn't hesitate to get a board name. My therapist sent me here to read about temple names and garments. Even my niece was asking why I still wore garments. She is NO LONGER MORMON. My daughter agreed. Now my daughter wears garments. Just wait until she spends the summers in Utah again. OMH.

I read the things I was sent here for and then I kept reading. one of my first posts was asking what atheists "believe." The responses were so informative and everyone was SO NICE. All the atheists who responded. I've had a lot more trouble with the Christians on here. I don't know what I am.

I've said before, I worked with a bunch of chemists and scientists at Thiokol (they developed the propellant for the space shuttle and it was at that time that I worked there). Anyway, one of the older men called me "Calleen" because he was from back east. I kept telling him he was saying it wrong, so he named me chlorine. And it stuck. And I've bene cl2 ever since.

Upside:

Small quantities of you are harmless, and provide wonderful health benefits in keeping our stuff clean and free of germs.

Downside:

Too much of you is poison!

:)

(tongue firmly in cheek, cl2! Love ya!)

I’m actually sealed for time and all eternity to a fellow board member. Neither of us have bothered to resign.

And so you can't be dead-dunked!

Anyone who wants to be dead-dunked just has to join the church to avoid that horrid fate!!

But, EB -- you haven't sent me your membership fee yet.
10% of your annual income.

Money orders, cash, or cashier's checks only.

Oh, wait...that was mormonism. Never mind. To be a member here, all you have to do is show up and contribute. Which you've done in spades!

:)

LOL

My check is in the bail. I'm under arrest for imperforating a temple to prevent normal dead processing.

Said it before, and I'll say it again: This is MORE than a board. It's like an extended family. A community. We share laughter, tears, and celebrations.

I arrived here because I had become a religious rebel. I stayed because I had become part of the Clan of the Exmos.
