This was a Tweet I received, unprovoked: “Yeah, being LDS is not for the faint of heart. It takes backbone, endurance & grounded roots. http://bit.ly/9sZg6A” The link is to a blog on anti-Mormons, which I am not. As for backbone, it takes a lot to stick up for your beliefs, whether they are Mormon or not. Last I knew, Mormons believed in being tolerant of other beliefs. Article of Faith # 11 states, “We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.” I guess once you leave the church, you aren’t allowed that freedom without criticism!?!
