Summer: It has been very strict in those wards I been to in Sweden. If you drank a coca cola and someone saw it..then you could be in trouble and members begun to talk alot behind your back. A lot of controlling between members and a lot judging. Not so uplifting. When I think back at my time as member, I never felt so much loved by other members. It was most about control. Especially afte

Devoted Exmo.:So you left the church 1987. how difficult was it to find books in a time without internet about errors in mormonism? And did you go to the temple back in the 80-ties? It seems like some rituals then were more "dramtatic" than nowadays...

ok,that is a long time. i think the only people who understands ex-mormons are ex-mormons... people does not understand who has not been involved in it. they maybe tries to understand, but i think it is impossible for them to see how complex this religion is in so many ares in life.

I mean after 20+ years of being a mormon there is much to talk about with people and most of the people who has not been involved in the religion themselves, don´t seem to understand anything of what a person talking about, who has been member of the mormonchurch. It is tough to be an ex-mormon over here, I´ll tell you.

Hello out there. Is there any ex-mormons from Scandinavia in this forum? We are not so many ex-mormons (or mormons) over here... I wonder also how different this religion is from the States for example to Sweden where I have been member for many years. I remember meetings with 40-50 people in each town and it was a very "fanatic" feeling around some of the wards. Maybe the faith

How has mormons treated you after you left the religion? What is your experiences in this question as ex-mormons? For my own situation it has been around 90% silence from the mormons that I use to have around me. Strange how silence can be so silent.

I have wondered which cult is most fanatic of those two. What do you people out there think? Aren´t they pretty similar in alot of things? Except the so called "priesthood" and the Book of mormon in mormonism? I think mormonism tries more to be "nice" to ex-members than J.Witnesses, but in the end it seems to be the same way of how to treat those who leave their faith.
