To sum up my feelings toward Mormonism, the religion of my upbringing, is difficult. I feel like I’m on a constant teeter-totter. On one hand, I don’t believe in many of the tenets of the faith. On the other hand, I respect the community and the culture and really miss it now that I’ve taken a break. When I discussed my angst in my Open Letter, I received many supportive comments, and many that made me want to leave as fast as I could. I wish that I could question things openly, but don’t see that happening in the current church forum. So I’m on a hiatus and am not sure if and when I’ll go back.
