In this episode Annie Jones (16), Jordan Montgomery (17) and Lottie Roberts (17) discuss growing up in the LDS church; coming to terms with their sexuality; grappling with their place in Mormonism, and the impact of the recent policy that renders same-sex married couples as apostates and their children as ineligible for full participation in the church.
“One of the things that makes me the angriest is that many leaders and members are
stuck in a loop of confirmation bias; and we know that the church has made mistakes in the past..and even though the church has a history of making poor decisions based on the time period (people are products of their generation) not acknowledging you have made a mistake is childish…and its not good leadership.”
“Its very upsetting that (the church) views this as a sin…Its not something you can control, its not something you choose. Its just who you are, and its really hard to be in a community where you hear that who you are is a sin.”
“It was a flat out lie when Nelson said they [the Quorum of the 12] were in unison. The
Prophet has dementia and this has been known for quite some time. I don’t even know how they can prop him up and say that he’s the prophet of the living gospel when he can barely read from a teleprompter.”
