On April 5, 2021, Dr. Julie Hanks, a Mormon mental health professional posted about President Russell M. Nelson’s April 2021 conference address. Specifically she addressed this quote:
Stop increasing your doubts by rehearsing them with other doubters.President Russell M. Nelson
I commented on her post:
Regardless of how one puts it, at the end of the day it is impossible to square a circle no matter how hard one tries.
The LDS Church has not been honest with and continues to tuck away discussion of many uncomfortable facts that deeply challenge (and even refute) many of the Mormon truth claims to all but the most willfully blind.
Until the Mormon Church learns to adopt a less literal paradigm and adopts a healthier more fact-based approach to groups they currently discriminate against, they will continue to leak members like a sieve.
Frankly, this type of loaded language is what one would expect from a cult leader. Truth can bear scrutiny and is nothing to shy away from.Jason Harris
And that, in a nutshell, is why I left the Mormon Church.
Jason Harris lived as an orthodox Mormon for forty years. He writes about his experiences leaving the Mormon Church and reconstructing a new World-View. He believes all religions and scripture are man-made, potentially helpful and harmful. He believes there is Divinity in all of them and everywhere.
