I became a mormon in 2008 at the tender age of 18. After a year in it (and going through baptisms for the dead, hearing the prophet speak, and getting some blessing which I now can not remember what it was for), I found that there were too many things which I just couldn't agree with. Especially, looking back, with the baptisms for the dead. They can pretty it up, but it still seemed cheap to be baptizing someone who was already dead and had no say in the matter because...Well they are obviously dead
. That and how the missionaries were pretty vicious about me going on a mission (calling me a failure for not wanting to go which turned out to be the best thing ever for my wallet), plus the sort of elitist sense of entitlement all culminated in me leaving the church. Their concepts on charity and the importance of family were sweet, but in all it was not enough to keep me from leaving the church.
