On (Leaving) Mormonism

We don't blog much about Mormonism, although we still talk about it a lot amongst ourselves and amongst our friends. For better or for worse, we've bought into the idea that once you've removed yourself from the church (and we have formally resigned) you give up some of your rights to critique the faith of others. But here is a list of most of our posts speaking about Mormonism that offer a good glimpse of our journey in and out and in and out again over the course of about a year.
