Three and a half years ago I posted on this site the details of a conversation I had with a friend of mine. In that conversation I related an experience  during my first LDS bishop’s worthiness interview at the age of 11 wherein the bishop taught me how to masturbate.

I fully support this movement called, Protect LDS Children.


I would encourage you and anyone you may know who may be supportive of this cause to sign the petition, read the stories, or even join their March for Children on March 30, 2018  at the Salt Lake City/County Building.

This is important for anyone even remotely connected to Mormonism, in or out.
