There seem to be a few of us ex-mo's in the Nexus and it is good to share the particular intricacies of extracting oneself from Mormonism.

Nice to meet you Nate. You are definitely not alone. Love coffee, & lots of nice wines out there too....hahaha!!!
just 10-15 pages is good enough.
I would like a story of how one person was mormon and how they "saw the light" I am a former muslim and my story will be included in the anthology. My anthology is about leaving your religion for atheism.
I was hardcore LDS until my mission, when I started to doubt. The doubt increased during law school and became mature when I started my law practice. Now, I am a secular humanist. My family is still in the church, which is hard. You can check out my blog at www.Theofrak.com. Glad to find group of people who have similar attitudes about the LDS church.
Tourette's syndrome opera was pretty much an on-the-spot made up thing, and it shifted towards nastier and more blasphemous when my brother and I grew up and went on trips ourselves without our true-blue Mormon mother. We haven't gone on a car trip together since he got married 12 years ago, and I can't really remember most of the songs - and most of the ones I can are not acceptable or printable here...the recipe's easy enough. Take a hymn (or any other well known tune) keep a few identifying lyrics, and replace the rest with as much vile-ness, political incorrectness, and offensiveness as you can possibly dream up.
I'd like to see the lyrics to those songs SDF. Especially the mentionable ones :)
Its funny you mention hymns. I havent been in an LDS church for 31 years (and still recovering- that s)ays something). I know all the hymns, but my brother and me invented a car travelling game we have dubbed "Tourettes synd.rome opera" where we sing pop songs, old standards and mormon church hymns but replace the lyrics with such vile blasphemous and profane lyrics it would curl your ears. Some (mentionable..."put your shoulder to the wheel - get run over", "pioneer chickens", several versions of "Book of moron stories", "piss,was thelittle stream as it hurried down my leg." We would get in all kinds of trouble with church songs. lol.
I went on a mission to Scotland from 1964 to 1966. I now wish I could go back and apologize to those I preached stupidity to.
Emily you're right about the conditioning. I have to admit I know the rest of the song. In fact, I could easily sing along to any hymn if I was to end up in a church.
