This one comes from the other side, and features a familiar name: Emily Pearson. I immediately cued in to the fact that she might be the daughter of Carol Lynn Pearson, and indeed, she is. Fascinating story, Emily has. But pay particular attention to her blog. It is well worth reading and absolutely worth considering. And thanks to Isabella for the comment. Seattle is COOOOOOLD, but I do like it. With warm clothes. Blankets. And maybe an electric blanket. Did I mention it’s COOOOOLD?

My husband and I are former mormons and often enjoy reading your blog.I admire you and your daughter for choosing to be levelheaded and balanced with a sprinkle of humour, in the way you choose to view your experiences in Utah and Life. It is incredibly sad to see and experience the amount of fear that cloaks many within the Mormon Church. A fear so thick that one can cut it with a knife and it acts as a barrier between them (mormons) and those that they view as outsiders (toxic to them). As you well know, mormons believe that the ADVERSARY can/will work to lead them astray and the ADVERSARY especially likes to work through “OUTSIDERS” like all of us. Of course this includes the “HOMOSEXUAL’ community.
Yet another example of the TOXIC BRAINWASHING: In Mormon Chapels throughout California, church leaders read a letter from the First Presidency of the LDS Church (29th June 2008).The letter advocates that Mormons in California need to vote against the legalization of GAY MARRIAGE….and of course for the PROTECTION OF THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.
Please read the letter as posted on a friends webblog.

The way that the Mormon Church has become openly Political is sickening to me!!!!!!
The Mormon church used to tell their members to vote their conscience…….
I take my hat off to all of the former mormons and non-mormons that choose to live in Utah. I’m glad it’s not me.The energy there can be stiffling. I lived their for several years and now live in the Seattle area. The energy here is so open in comparison that I feel like I can breathe deeply without effort. I invite you, Natalie, and anyone else who reads this entry to come up and breathe for a holiday……anytime!!!
