I didn't want to hijack this wonderful thread.https://www.exmormon.org/phorum/read.php?2,2272513,2272513#msg-2272513
And I'm sure there are many former Mormons who have no idea what it is like to grow up in a completely dysfunctional and severely neurotic group of people.
But reading the above post I realized that of all the lies Mormonism has promoted and all the history it has hidden and all of the apologetics it has produced its by far biggest lie for me offered with absolutely no apology is that my family can be together forever someday.
Ironically, the most attractive take away from Mormonism is that families of any sort as long as they are traditional ones are worth saving. Take the short lived ban on baptizing children of gay couples. Categorically Mormonism defined those families as not worthy of saving yet no matter what fresh Hell a heterosexually headed family is, they are worth saving forever.
That is a colossal lie and I must underscore this point - not all families are worthy of theological endorsement and embalming. Regardless of any afterlife rebirth into health of a family, stamping the terrible families with certifications of God's approval is a heinous crime against the humanity within these families.
LDS Corp literally is as responsible and possibly more so than as any other factors like alcohol, drugs, irresponsible and reckless abusive behaviors are in supporting and creating codependences in familial relationships.
