I can't do it anymore


My religious/spiritual journey has been a long one. Its been filled with guilt, anger, hostility and searching. But the past few months have shown me that there is no room in my life for any organized religion. I just can't see any happiness or life building worth on being led by leaders who's interests are fleeting at best for the well being of myself and others because they are only concerned about their celebrity  and the awe and love they blindly get from members.

I am tired of "Laws" being passed in our Gov't to appease ones religious groups standards or moral compass. Little by little our rights are being taken away because someone got offended by this or that.  Each person has the right to believe, act, say, watch, and do anyway they want. They should not feel pigeonholed to fit into what others want or feel. Each person has their own moral compass of what is right and wrong for themselves.



To me there is more to "spirituality" than a Religion. There is more ways to worship God or feel worthy of Heaven than how much tithing you pay, if you accept callings or going to countless meetings. 

The LDS Church preaches family togetherness, but what do they do? They keep families apart during the week. With meetings, young men/young women activities, callings that take up family time, cleaning the buildings. That is not family togetherness.  But to the Church it is if the families wholeheartedly believe in every single thing that is spewed from the pulpits and the magazines.

 I feel that sometimes people put that above everything else. They will leave jobs, get divorced, make extreme sacrifices to move on up the supposed ladder to Heaven and their standings in the Church. 



There is not one TRUE religion.

    1. Yes it is. The video is really powerful not only for Tyler, but for many people who are leaving the Church for their own personal reasons. The Church has so many double standards and backdoor ways of doing things its no wonder Utah has the highest rate of Depression and anti-depression medications.
