  1. I would suggest using a web archive link instead of direct links to LDS resources just in case they disappear down the memory hole.

    1. Thanks! Will do. Way more people looked at this than I ever imagined. Several suggestions were made here, via email and Reddit to clean it up. The LDS church basically destroyed my family although for years the "family" aspect was all that kept me in.

  2. I have to disagree with you.

    The LDS church is definitely pro family. How do I know?

    Why they told me so.

    So all of your real life examples aren't worth anything.

  3. Small edit: #13 should say sealed to "himself" not "themselves".
