Maybe they are handling it like this guy tells it.

I couldn’t possibly enumerate every reason, but I have been able to determine a few over time.
We scare the hell out of Evangelical Christians. That fear is born both from the strangeness of the Mormon faith relative to their own, and also by its success.
Some Mormons resent the church for how ‘it makes them feel’ about things they want to do that are counter to church moral standards. They don’t want to feel bad, so they project their anger on the thing making them feel bad. It can get very weird at times.
There are some Mormons who, in spite of a life-time in the church, never really grasp what it means to be Mormon. They impose an external system of values on what they see in the church which puts them in continual conflict. They would, for example, see the office of Bishop as ‘prestigious’ and resent that they aren’t offered the calling. This is particularly true for feminists who want to be ‘in charge’. The church and its members are perceived as a personal obstacle to the recognition of their inherent greatness. The concept of entitlement is totally inimical to Mormonism, so they find themselves being ‘ethnically’ Mormon while ideologically something else entirely.
I think the broadest category are Mormons and former Mormons who consider that the church and its members hadn’t met their expectations. They love an ideal and when people don’t measure up to that ideal, they become resentful. Whenever you hear people talk about promises or assert that they’ve been lied to, you are dealing with someone in this category.
Most people, even people who’ve disassociated from the church, don’t hate it. In a lot of cases its simply something they are not interested in and/or don’t value. A lot of these people came back to the community later in life when their circumstances and outlook have changed."http://qr.ae/TUGWFihttps://www.quora.com/What-makes-Mormonism-and-its-current-structure-so-terrible-to-others-who-condemn-it
