okay here we go
my dad is mormon (my mom was too, but she left the church a while ago) and all my childhood i was raised in that religion but i've been doubting it for a few years now and just going to church because my dad would get really mad/sad because he's really involved in it and if i ever told people at church i didn't believe in what they did i just know they would shove their beliefs down my throat and give me so much attention
i guess i identify as agnostic because i really can't say i believe in a god but i really can't disprove the existence of one but this week i went to a mormon camp and idk it just felt so peaceful like they talked about god and jesus and it felt right?? but i've researched mormonism and they have so many beliefs i just can't agree with and that i think are just wrong and honestly i have no idea what i wanted to do with this post im just so confused about what to do and my doubts about my beliefs have really been bothering me and i just don't know anymore

you might be Christian or agnostic, bc Christians believe in God and Jesus but im p sure Christianity and mormonism have different views about at least some stuff

My family and I were mormons until last year and it was so awful. Like, no coffee or tea? What??

I found the Mormon church homophobic and misogynistic (girls can't pass sacrament, women can't become prophets). They didn't even allow blacks to lay priesthood until 1970s.

The Mormon church has actually excommunicated people who have openly pointed out these flaws, and then they covered it up.

So yeah. I know this doesn't really help, but I feel for ya

dude, religion can be so exhausting. i feel for you. i think i'm sort of in the same limbo as you--i don't exactly know my beliefs in god and jesus and everything, but it just feels so lovely and right thinking about it without all the other contradicting "rules" of the religion and homophobia. the thing is, though, you don't actually have to follow every rule of whatever religion is laid out before you, because, despite what some may preach, religion is very controversial and relative! some priests say this, some priests say that; one bible verse doesn't like one thing, another verse likes say the thing is a-okay. you can be a part of a religion without conforming to everything it "demands". no two people have the same exact beliefs.
if you're not comfortable with any religion's overall mindset, though, you can just believe in god and jesus on your own accord. maybe try to find a free thinker's church, where you can praise jesus right between a buddhist and a wiccan praising their own deities. i personally feel more comfortable with this sort of belief. it feels more natural and just better for me. i love the idea that jesus might still accept me even as a girl who likes girls, y'know? im not all the way into catholicism, but i completely love so many of their teachings and beliefs. when i actually have my life figured out, i'll tackle my religious status, but until then, i'm pretty content with my religion as it is right now.

I'm really nervous. Two years ago I injured my shoulder and I went through physical therapy and everything and it hasn't gotten better so after my family gets back from visiting my grandparents we're going to plan on having it fixed through surgery before it causes more problems later in life. This is nerve wracking. I'll probably have the surgery over Christmas break which is a long ways away, but still. I'm nervous o.o
I'm writing small because I don't want to take up much space. Yeah.

Oh no. Hope you'll recover correctly. I know a bit about surgeries (don't ask)

I don't know, I can't really be bothered with religion. I believe in God and shit, but I don't want to get into anything else. My family are Christians, but I don't believe in all the Biblical stuff. I suppose I think truth can be found in a number of places and no one gets it all right.
