So, I'm not one of those types who feels more fully justified for leaving the Mormon church in 'good standing.'
In fact, I've never quite understood it when ex-mo's even bring it up.
A big part of the reason I left the church was because I realized how much I loved to have sex and have sex with different partners.
It was increasingly ridiculous to try and keep both lifestyles going. It became so obvious that I was the worst kind of hypocrite. I was duped by the church and their impossible standards but I kept 'slipping' and enjoying sex with some girlfriend.
To a certain extent, alcohol was also something I enjoyed and didn't want to give it up.
Eventually I credit this to helping me get OUT of the Morg.
It took me a while but I came around and just faced up to the fact that I had no interest in the Mormon lifestyle. It was way too boring and restrictive.
I realized that I would eventually get kicked out and/or found out so I just stopped going so I could enjoy the good life.
After a few months, the brainwashing power of the church starts to weaken. I started to look into things and then I realized it was a fraud anyway.
What a GREAT DAY!!
THANK YOU SEX AND ALCOHOL FOR GETTING ME AWAY FROM THE CRAZY CULT!!
In opinion, you deserve NO EXTRA points for leaving in 'good standing.' Good standing for what? For being MORE obedient to the cult?
