I assume azsteve doesn't want to share his mother's book, because there's nothing in it that is worthwhile, healing, or helpful, right. Just a pointless drag through the mud?
No one knows I write on RFM, because my very scary, violent ex-husband and his sick GA-Mormon-royalty family think they own me and my children (fathered by my second husband, years later) through the New and Everlasting Covenant of The Holy Mormon Temple. I have changed some minor facts and numbers concerning my life and whereabouts, but nothing about my experiences and who I really am, in order to stay safe. My ex's important GA relative approached me at a wedding, and said that he knew me from somewhere.... My TBM friends were impressed and gushing to be near such a big celebrity. I gave him a blank stare, and said, "We've never met, but I know who you are. Nice to meet you. I'm Claire Forgan."
My TBM parents were older, and they died before I resigned from the cult, so I didn't have the problem of "breaking their heart." I don't talk about religion at all with my Mormon family. The Mormon stalkers and gossips found out that I resigned, and are shunning me, which is fine.
I agree with Stillangry, that Mormonism is a mental disease. There's nothing I can do to help them. Life is easier, now that I've stopped trying to rescue others from the cult--who don't want to know the Truth. I have told a few ex-mormon friends about RFM. I think I recognize some posters here, but I respect their anonymity, also.
I do like to secretly leave little business cards around, with this website printed on it, for example, in Books of Mormon in Marriott Hotels, in doctors' waiting rooms where missionaries accost patients (a captive audience), at Mormon visitors centers, and whenever I have go to into a Mormon building. I make sure no one sees me do this. I will print the links to find the CES letters, or a relevant message or question on the card--whatever seems to be on people's mind at the time. It is less painful to be forced into Mormon situations, if I can leave these cards around.
