Hello, sorry I didn't know where to leave this comment:) I think I have the right person: "Crazywomancreek?" if this isn't your name, forgive me:) I wanted you to know that I found your comments both intelligent and poignant on the young mans site who left the Church (was excommunicated) I am active LDS convert from Jewish/NY background.. Very well written, Best wishes, KittywaymoPS this was the comment you made about the realization that the Church and the Member is a relationship, not a dictatorship as some people leaving the Church and acting victimized seem to suggest. I have never been forced, coerced, not even gently, to keep the commandments, pay tithing etc.. Instead as a convert, I have experienced love beyond anything I've ever saw in other human beings, personal sacrifice, financial support when needed (my mom raised 7 kids on her own, wasn't a member till 4 years after I joined and the Church paid our heat, food and supported us. ) It breaks my heart when I see younger people who are not as well read as they suppose making idiotic decisions(ok I know a little judgmental, but its the same frustration I experienced when one of my children cut off "the nose despite the face" in their decisions in life:)
cwc? I caught your comment on fmh (just now! very long day here) but have long since forgotten my gmail account for pseudonym, never mind the password that goes with it. So I set up a new one, just to hear from you. what on earth is your email? how did we do this last time? (I've forgotten that too!)Actualthoughanonlesbian...
wait: it occurs to me that since these comments go through moderation, and moderation means *you* cwc, that I can just give you my new gmail address this way: it's firstname.lastname@example.org to hear from you!atal
You need to write a new blog post. :) (although I totally enjoyed this one)
Crazywomancreek, it's 'a man Zed'. May I tell you how much I admire your contributions to fMh.
