Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Joseph Smith's life before Mormonism in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"   Fawn Brodie's book, "No Man Knows My History" is an excellent and authoritative source on Smith and his family before the advent of Mormonism (as well as after of course).  She portrays him as a sympathetic character…"

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Kolob in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"Actually, for all your questions, you will get far more complete and well-sourced answers on Wikipedia than any one person could answer.  That is my recommendation if you are looking for explanations of where these things came from. "

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Angel Moroni in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"  Just another Nephite in J. Smith's pantheon.  All the BoM prophets come across pretty much as self-righteous pricks - the 1st Nephi and his blathering on in 2nd Nephi being the worst.  Moroni struck me as the most tragic…"

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Baptism of the deceased in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"   OK, the idea is a little weird,, but for us in Massachusetts going to the DC temple, is was more a road trip and party than a weird religious rite.  And the doctrine makes sense inside of mormon theology.  It was really no big…"

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion BYU in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"I went to BYU 1979-84.  While I was there I positively LOVED it.  It was a friendly, open, incredibly clean (physically) place for a believing LDS like me.  I made a lot of friends and liked (most) classes and opportunities I…"

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Missionary Training and door-to-door proselytizing by LDS church missionaries in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"Wow.  About knocking on doors and being told, almost universally "no thanks" (some more emphatic than others), well, you come to expect it.  Training was so brief and unrealistic that it was of little use.  I never knew…"

Gordon Clay replied to Debra Stevenson's discussion Hill Cumorah and historic LDS sites in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"Went to Hill Cumorah pageant 2 times as a teenager in the early 1970s.  Crowded, lots of mosquitoes, lots of people handing out anti-mormon documents.  Pageant was dull, doctrinaire.  Highlight of course was jesus showing up at the…"

Gordon Clay replied to The Virgin Marlene's discussion The fire in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"I believe this doctine was in Doctrines of Salvation, which used to be in the paperback church history set, but I threw all this stuff out a long time ago. If any of you see Bill Marr's "Religulous" which is very funny in parts and…"

Gordon Clay replied to The Virgin Marlene's discussion The fire in the group Ex-Mormon Atheists
"What stories!! What got me out? Isn't it obvious? I was offended and there were too many commandments I could not keep! There really is only one article of faith or doctrine or creed in all of mormonism actually: Believe whatever the leaders…"

Ex-Mormon Atheists

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.
