I had three shelves of Mormon propaganda, plus another 5 shelves of it from my parents' house. It filled half of the wall! It was so satisfying to clear out the books, and fill the shelves with other books that had collected throughout the house, and were mixed in the other shelves with school books, children's books, cook books, etc. I discovered some great classics among my parents' boxed books. The Mormon books had been given top priority. I'm proud of my library, now.
Almost an entire shelf was filled with books written by Mormon family members--my GA relative, cousins, an uncle, etc. Every Mormon's a writer. There was a pile of church magazines with articles by and about these prolific relatives. These people are all dead, or not speaking to me.
I agree with Poop--I didn't want anyone else being poisoned by the lies, so I recycled. I might have saved a tree! I got rid of the Mormon music, too, but kept my really nice organ music, though I'll probably never play the organ again (and I'm relieved). I was so burnt out, that I went from being passionate about music, and practicing for hours in the chapel--Bach, Handel, great Catholic and Protestant music--to not wanting to enter a Mormon building, or touch an organ keyboard, for the rest of my life. That's extreme! The music didn't die--it was murdered by the Mormons.
Don't burn the books--that's just too awful.
My brother recycled his when I did, but kept his BY Journal of Discourses, and all of the History of the Church volumes, passed down from our grandfather. There's some pretty damning stuff in those.
We looked through the Mormon stuff carefully, so we didn't get rid of anything important.
I kept my father's bible that he used on his mission. It was a King James, and was separate from the attached Mormon garbage.
I always had a grievance against the Quad scriptures, in which the cult took the Bible, which I felt was a great book, and attach the Mormon propaganda right onto it, under the same cover. Now The Bible became adulterated, contaminated with lies, I felt.
Make a party out of it! My brother and I did!
