Who am I?

Not ever functionally a Mormon (although I'm certain that I have been vicariously baptized repeatedly); my family was LDS when I was born in Europe during WWII.
We all emigrated to SLC after the war but soon after left to make a new home on the Pacific coast.
In the early '50s when I was still quite young my family removed themselves from LDS membership.
I have many Mormon relatives of all flavors and intensities.
Myself I am a Calvinist and am well accustomed to theological structures and reasoning.
Perhaps of more value to this board and myself is that I have a detailed understanding of several generations of culture change, inside of LDS groups and outside.

Mormonism can be a piece of work so to speak because of intensity and presupposition of belief.
Hard feelings invariably are generated from mostly internal disputes.
However not all of those disputes are one sided with respect to irrationality, Mormons are people too and sometimes deserve some space to be themselves and not be always criticized especially when their intentions are good.

Hopefully I can learn more about the details of leaving Mormonism, something which I support, and contribute from other experiences I have encountered.
One very important lesson I have learned through the years is that Mormons are also people and have the normal distribution of warm friendship and foolish flaws as with any other culture.
