New Order Mormons are those who no longer believe some (or much) of the dogma or doctrines of the LDS Church, but who want to maintain membership for cultural, social, or even spiritual reasons. New Order Mormons recognize both good and bad in the Church, and have determined that the Church does not have to be perfect in order to remain useful. New Order Mormons seek the middle way to be Mormon.
“The emergence of New Media is facilitating a world-wide conversation on almost every subject including religion…may I ask that you join the conversation by participating on the Internet, particularly the New Media, to share the gospel and to explain in simple and clear terms the message of the Restoration.” -Elder M. Russell Ballard
StayLDS.com is an independent community of LDS Church members who desire to help other LDS Church members who have experienced a trial of faith find a way to remain participating members if it is their desire to do so.
StayLDS.com is not affiliated with any group or movement. We are not “Middle-Way Mormons,” inactive Mormons, apostate Mormons, or anti-Mormons. We are Latter-Day Saints with a desire to support other LDS members with real faith issues, with a hope to encourage active involvement in the church, and not to attack the church or its leaders. We have no agenda to organize any types of groups to promote changes to the church. It is about individual growth and support. All are welcome to join the conversation in an uplifting and positive atmosphere.
While topics of interest to members of the Church are discussed on this Board, it is not affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Opinions expressed are those of the individual posters rather than those of any organization. In addition, this Board is not affiliated with FAIR (the Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research), nor with the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship at Brigham Young University.
Post-Mormons are members of a rapidly growing community of families and individuals who have voluntarily left Mormonism. We choose to no longer base our lives, and the lives of our children, on “truths” dictated by others. We believe that truth is freely available to any honest, diligent seeker regardless of creed, age, race or sexual orientation.
We have felt the butterfly’s metamorphosis. Forces that well up from within have compelled us to grow beyond the limits of Mormonism. And so we have become a loosely knit community of friends and support groups, and endeavor to help those like us who also feel the need to explore meaning, purpose and life beyond Mormonism. We celebrate the wonderful diversity of life as we experience as fully as we can our physical and cultural reality. We perceive ourselves as part of a human tapestry that is rich beyond our ability to comprehend, and wonder at this miracle. We have come to realize that there are more ways to do good, and be good, than we can number. What we once perceived as the “strait and narrow way” has broadened to include all ways that promote individual and collective well-being.
Mormons on Reddit
/r/LatterDaySaints is for articles and topics of interest to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or people interested in Mormon themes. The premise inherent in the subreddit is that the LDS church is true.
r/Mormon is a forum for members of the Mormon Church and those who are curious and willing to respect membership in the Church. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome to ask, discuss, and question. In particular, this is a welcoming space for historically marginalized groups within the faith to seek community and support Mormon feminists, LGBT Mormons and Mormon racial minorities.
The Goal of this reddit will now be to facilitate discussion between mormons and mormon critics. Measure76 will be the only ex-mormon mod, and will invite mormons to help moderate.
The only rule Measure76 will enforce is that nobody is to be banned for an opinion.
Everyone with an interest in Mormonism is welcome to participate in r/mormondebate, including true-believing Mormons, doubting active Mormons, unorthodox Mormons, ex-Mormons, non-Mormon Christians, people of other faith traditions, and atheists.
Another exmormon community, tailored toward discussion about women and the church. We’re here to offer a specific look at the unique experiences of Mormon women. This is a place for healing, growth, learning, and empowerment. All people, regardless of gender or religious status, are welcome.
A forum for ex-mormons and others who have been affected by mormonism to share news, commentary, and comedy about the Mormon church.
