How long were you in the church?

Until I was 30, when I was excommunicated for being in a lesbian relationship.. My great grandparents and grandparents were prominent Mormons. My sisters are still active. My brothers, one of whom is gay, are not.

What caused you to question the church?

My Jack-Mormon mother and her supposed fate in Mormon Hell; my cynical Southern Baptist father; the racist, homophobic, and sexist doctrine of the Church; Fawn Brodie's book, No Man Knows My History, and my introduction to beer.


I stand all amazed at the fact that this group exists! I am an excommunicated 67 year old retired woman who would enjoy the company of other post-Mormons in Utah's rarefied air. My husband is not social. Thanks all. I'll join you the next time I can.

What Katharine E. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was not a bitch-about-Mormonism group. We talked about a potpourri of things: hiking, karaoke, ECT, the art of persuasion, Portland, the color of curtains! It was a social gathering in which we felt no restrictions on what we discussed, including the struggles of living as non-Mormons in rarefied Mormon air. Nice company!
