who lives in Southern California, who didn't know I had resigned.
First question out of his mouth: What Ward you in?
That opened the door for me to tell him about several reasons for leaving the church.
His comment: I'm sorry.
My response: Don't be sorry, I am happier than I have been in my whole life without the church making me feel bad that I can never do enough.
His comment: Was it the prop 8 controversy?
My response: No, I resigned way before that.
His response: I have had many discussions with members of my ward who had issues with that.
My response: Yes, I understand many members have left because of that issue, and I further understand the church is bleeding members.
His response: Not here in our area, we are growing rapidly, the church is full every Sunday.
Yeah, I believe that one.......
