haha, to be called satan by your stake president had to be a really special experience.

It was pretty comical actually now that I look back, but at the time it didn’t feel that way.

I was about 6 months of so liberated, and a friend of mine was approached by the local missionaries and invited him to the SMP house for cookies and a lesson. He asked me to go with him and I went. The SMP thought I was there to help convert my friend and when I started in with typical 1990’s anti talking points he had a conniption fit.

He had studied under Nibley at BYU and had a man crush on him, and when I questioned his apologetics he flipped out.

Looking back I feel sorry for the poor missionaries, and even more so for sister SMP...she just sat there and watched her husband pop a aorta.

But the cookies and home made bread were good.

Right. I was accused of being gay for questioning the Prop 8.

Anyway, lostindc, peace.

What does the "M" in "SMP" stand for?

Hey lost

Congrats on freeing yourself from the fear riddled bondage of organized religion. Should you discover that bondage comes in many forms and from many places, you might want to consider the following:
