The following happened within the last several months.
My husband is the bishop’s son and I got pregnant before he proposed. It was no surprise when my father-in-law called me into the bishop’s office to ask if I wanted to repent. I said yes because obviously I wanted to go to heaven and how am I supposed to tell my father-in-law and bishop “no thanks, I’m good with my sins.” I had no idea what the process entailed but I was definitely not prepared for him to ask me to describe what sexual acts I did with his son and how often we did them.
A father-in-law asking his soon to be daughter-in-law what sex acts she engaged in with his son is twisted and disgusting. Sick on so many levels. Yet, it is totally condoned by the Mormon Church. Do you hear my Mormon friends how revolting this sounds? Unhealthy & wholly unnecessary. I have already stood up and openly stated how abhorrent this practice is. The Church’s response was to kick me out. Foolish men. And that’s all they are…men.
This women was 18 at the time. I think she’s 19 now. One of my daughter’s was also pregnant at 19. As a teenage married woman, heavy with child, she sat across from her bishop, all alone, as he posed his nasty question, “Do you masturbate?” It angers me to think that my daughter was subjected to this.
Mormon’s, how do you tolerate this behavior? How do you put up with prophets, seers and revelators who condone & foster this ugly practice? They are no friend to children and families while they continue to harbor that which is unwholesome and unsavory.
I hope you are starting to realize that the Church and it’s culture have conditioned you to accept practices as normal that are abhorrent to EVERY SINGLE PERSON OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.
I encourage you to stand up and speak out. Don’t humiliate yourself by allowing your church to shame children and adults with interrogations about sexual positions, masturbation and all the other pornographic and damaging questions that are permitted by your leadership. It’s incumbent on you to make your own church better.
I invite you to climb a mountain and save a child.
