I came across your blog while reading about Mormon Fundamentalist groups, and read the piece you wrote about visiting the AUB. I realized that you pointed out that you had previously been a member of the LDS church, so I read a few more entries to possibly find out why you left. After seeing this video, I know why you left...I did for the same reason, but not before serving a 2-year mission and graduating from BYU-Idaho. After graduation, I told my parents and left the church, that was when I was 26. I'm 32 now. I enjoy your objectivism and honest writing style. Great blog. :)
Oh wow! Stumbled on this blog by accident. I live in Ogden, UT as well and actually know some of the people you met. I have a weird fascination with religion as you do, though I would not consider myself traditional (I come from a Evangelical Christian background and at best I would consider myself a Tillichian Christian). I should totally do this and do a religion tour since there is so many options here in Weber County alone.
