It really sickens me to think that they basically treat it like an illness and claim that no one is actually born that way. It also seems to me that Mormons view whites being a superior race, with there being that story describing the Native American curse as "they were white, and exceeding fair and delightsome; that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them." That really bothered me. Recently my boyfriend has decided that he doesn't feel worthy enough to enter the temple because he feels he has a problem with masturbation.
Sometimes I feel guilty because I feel like I am corrupting him.
It just bothers me when he labels certain behaviors that I see as completely natural as "bad" or "dirty" without even thinking about it first. For example, maybe some would disagree, but I see nothing wrong with having sex or engaging in sexual behaviors with someone you love so much that you intend to marry.
What matters is that the same love is there as the love that is there when you are married to that person.
I am not by any means trying to pressure him into sex, I don't care and totally respect his decisions, I just wish they were his decisions and not pre-programmed decisions from the LDS.
I don't have a story about how I used to be Mormon, it's more of my brush with Mormonism, I have more of a dilemma that I was looking for advice on. I thought I could at least do that for him, although I had no intentions on converting to Mormonism.
We are very much in love and I know this is the man I would like to spend the rest of my life with. So before I really learned for myself, I told him that I would take discussions.
He told me some things about it and from the little he told me, it didn't sound that bad.
One of the first things he told me is not to believe what people say about Mormons, that it is all lies, etc.
The only word I could think of to describe the way he sounded was brainwashed.
Right away, before I did any research on my own, I noticed several aspects of the religion I did not like.
I have always been very open minded about a number of issues.
For one thing I don't like the churches view on homosexuality.
