    I Understand...

    ...that you feel this incredible love for your God and your beliefs. I respect that. And I am overjoyed (seriously) that you found it! But PLEASE respect me enough not to bang on my door and try to convince me that what I believe is wrong. Thank you.

    The Blind Following The Crooked

    The Mormon faith itself is built on lies and half truths, and those who follow it are blind to this fact either by upbringin because of their parents who were already in the LDS Church or because they have been brainwashed into believing a system that when put to the test of...
