I may not have agreed with all of it, but my congregation had some of the kindest people I've met in my life. I will say just that.
That being said, if you are happier out of the religion then that was obviously the right choice for you. I wish you well in your journey.
Understood and likewise. FWIW I am glad that they changed on that one. I'm happy for the next generation who will have to grow up in that environment whenever improvements are made. I just kind of wish the org wasn't so hardline on things that they end up changing their mind on.
