Has anyone been yelled at by their bishop for wanting to resign?

Not me. Scorned, belittled, and scolded. Lied to. But I don't recall being yelled at.

Ah, yes. He asked me what my husband thought and when I told him he acted as though I might be lying. Then he told me that I needed to come in and talk to him. I said, "No, I don't. I don't believe in Mormonism."

His response was, "After all the church has done for you, you owe it to us."

I replied, "After all the tithing I've paid into the church, I don't owe you anything!"

He asked for my husband's phone number at work (military) and I said that he couldn't take calls because he was having an inspection that day.

He was fuming mad! He said, "He told YOU not not to call him; he didn't tell me that!"

I didn't enjoy that conversation because I had no intention of arguing when I called to tell him I didn't want the visiting teachers to come by anymore.

"11 We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may."

I guess it's just used when it helps them.

Peace

No, I'd moved since I last went to church when I resigned, so the Bishop had no idea who I was. We were complete strangers. We only corresponded via e-mail.

No, mine just tried to avoid the issue. I told him in an E-mail I wanted to resign, he wouldn't move forward and instead wanted a meeting, I told him no, he asked for a phone call, and then when I did call he said he needed to "make sure" I really wanted to resign. Because I'd have gone through all the rest of the if I wasn't. -_- The odd part was that I had been very clear in both E-mails that I wasn't going to be talked down, and yet he still insisted on the phone call. to his credit he did move forward very quickly after that.
