A Facebook friend posted a link to this very strange article:https://medium.com/s/story/why-people-leave-the-church-and-never-come-back-410e3e817a3a
There's a lot to digest (and roll my eyes at) here, but after reading this I think I finally hit on what the root of the problem is for Mormons:
Someone else's religion is none. of. your. business.
That's what Mormons don't seem to get, including the author. Your uncle, your parents (unless you're a minor in their care), your adult kids, your friends, complete strangers -- their religious beliefs are nobody's business but theirs. If I want to change religions every single week, that's literally none of your business.
The correct response isn't "simply love them," it's "treat them exactly the same as you did before."
