Almost 2 years ago, my sister-in-law Lori left the Mormon church. She's been on the big ex-Mormon board, but mostly reading. Anyway, I saw her today and we were having some great chitchat.
The friends she had from church would ask why she wasn't at the LDS church anymore. She told me the following dialogue she had with a former friend...
Friend: Lori, why haven't I seen you at church for such a long time? Have you been ill??
Lori: No, I just don't go to that church anymore!
Friend (aghast): Oh my gosh! Why not?
Lori: I studied my way out of it. It was actually very easy! It only took me a couple of minutes!
Friend: (speechless... leaves)
What a gal!
I laughed so hard. She isn't at all afraid to talk straight, she's so burned by the Mormons. But she's never been contacted by any of her LDS "friends" again. Not even one.
