Good on you! It's like a badge of honor, isn't it?

So, they kicked you out for wanting to be kicked out? Yay?

After all (with apologies to Groucho) I dont want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members. :rant:

Congrats, Janice! :hug:

LOL! They couldn't even find a reason, so they ASKED me to request in writing that my name be removed! And back then the only way to have your name removed was excommunication!

So, not believing that Mormonism is the One True Churchtm wasn't a reason?

Only if it was in writing I guess. I refused to go in and be put on trial in front of their leaders. I had told the bishop over the phone and the relief society president that I didn't believe their teachings. They didn't even offer me a tithing refund!
