What I remember the most about my life as a Mormon was the appearances. How everything that I was told to do, say and even think were meant to portray a specific appearances to those around me.

Then it all seemed fine, perfect, normal. Now that I look back I see things differently, I see the masterful play that I was made to act. I hear a lot of people say how they admire Mormon communities and its members. The problem is that the reality behind the scene is very different.

The church makes others see what they want them to see and they do everything to scare their members into silence. Those who leave are hounded and often scared into returning or keeping quiet. As more people like myself get to see through the illusion, the more the church will have to face the facts that they are not as they want others to see them to be. They never have been and never will be.
