Date: December 08, 2012 12:45PMCivil lawsuit against LDS Church based on their psychosexual abuse
On June 12th 2012, I have deposited a civil lawsuit against the LDS Church AND my parents due the psychological trauma caused by the anti-masturbation propaganda.
Here is my story. I was raised by my parents in the mormon faith. At the age of 12 (1992), I went throught the worthiness interview in order for me to be submitted to the baptism of the Dead.
When it came to the Law of CHastity, the 1st counselor has asked me if I masturbated. Intimitated, and believing it was very wrong as I have been taught, I lied about it.
The consequence were brutal. When I did participated to the Baptism of the 46 dead people (my own ancestors) few weeks after the actual worthiness interview, I felt I had betrayed all my ancestors and that because of my unworthyness, their souls would remain in hell for eternity.
The guilt just grew up with the years while I was considering myself evil and a imposture.
After having trying to quit this bad habit without succes. I attempted suicide at age 16.
I developped a severe mental condition with extreme sexual dysfonction.
After leaving the CHurch because of the overwhelme feelings of guilt (psychosexual shame), I was lucky enough to receive professionnal help which has brought me to the deposition of the actual civil lawsuit.
My story is very similar to Kip Eliason's story :http://www.affirmation.org/suicide_info/sin_and_death_in_mormon_country.shtml
Many thanks to Dr Mark Kim Malan for his precious study on the subject which I obviously put as evidence to my legal complaint file :http://fr.scribd.com/doc/25111987/Historical-Development-of-New-Masturbation-Attitudes-in-Mormon-Culture
To all the youth in the LDS CHurch that has and continu to suffer due to the false teachings of the Church about masturbation.
