Links to good stuff

Here is a link to Joanna Brooks's recent article over at Religion Dispatches entitled Time for Mormons to Come to Terms with Church History.

And here is a link to the results of John Dehlin's recent survey on why people leave the Church. Learning hidden, less-faith-promoting information is a big factor.

Interesting, but not surprising, that I fall in the 15% who are disaffected with the Church for the primary reason of its stance on homosexuals. Church history deception is a secondary issue for me but a larger issue for the Church overall. Nothing new here, growing up gay you become accustomed to being a second class concern.
