This is a survey. If you consider yourself an active, faithful member of the LDS Church please do not comment on any of the responses unless you are seeking clarification, and then only seek clarification and no more. I will do the same. This is just for me to learn, although I may use what you say here in other posts on this site. I only want to hear from people who have been members of the LDS Church and have then left it. I would prefer to hear from those who have strong feelings about leaving and didn’t leave just because they were 8 and their parents left so they did too. If your feeling is that you would like to get other members of the LDS Church to leave it, so much the better for the purposes of this post. Feel free to response anonymously if you so desire, I don’t need to know who you are, I’m just interested in what you say.
As you compose your responses I would ask that you ask yourself this question: If had 30 seconds in an elevator with an Mormon, and that was the only chance I would have to start them down the road toward questioning their faith, what would I tell them? What books would I want them to read? What websites would I want them to visit? What articles would I want them to examine? What questions would I want them to think about?
Then, give me your best three (or less, or more, it’s all good).
Note: Please do not copy and paste the full text of articles or entire books here, or someone else’s lengthy diatribe. If you want to give a diatribe that’s fine, but let it be your own. Remember, this is what you would say if you only had 30 seconds, not what you would stuff into someone’s arms if you happened to be carrying around a bunch of anti-Mormon literature. People are more likely to listen to what you have to say if you’re brief and to the point. If you go on and on and on people will just skip over it, and I might just delete your inpute so as to not clutter things up.
