Messed Up

Posted by: Andee / Category: , ,


Can I just say how messed up it is to send a little kid a note from his/her primary class telling them they love him/her, miss them, and want them to come to church and have fun with the rest of the class?

Especially when this kid has been to church once, and doesn't know any of the other kids who "love" and "miss" him.

Manipulative, much?

    This actually happened to me. I haven't been to church in over 10 years. We have moved 6 times since then. Around 6 months ago, the Primary sent my kids (whom they've never met) a letter saying they missed them and telling them about all of the fun things they are missing.

    Needless to say, I was livid. That is when I officially decided to have our names removed from the church records. Mormon mafia. And a very inconsiderate mafia at that.

    This happened to me ALL THE TIME when I was a kid and I missed church. Even as a kid I knew that they didn't really "miss" me. They just wanted me there.

    Going after kids in this manner is just plain wrong. I have read so many stories about missionaries talking to kids in order to get their parents investigating, kids getting baptized without parent's consent, you name it.

    You DON'T do this to kids.

    Doing it to grown adults is bad enough.

    So glad you like it!!

    I would blog here even if no one read it, so no worries... I will definitely carry on. I am still slightly surprised anyone gives a damn about what I think and do in my daily existance.

    I checked out your blogs, and they are pretty cool!!

    Nice to meet you!
