Hey, I just want to give you

Hey, I just want to give you props for what you posted. I was Mormon most of my life, only making an intellectual break from the church a year after being home from my mission. As a history major I was voracious in my reading of Mormon history, which I still find absolutely fascinating, and I gotta give you a lot of respect for your beliefs, because, like you said, they're far more grounded in history and reality than the fantasy notions embraced by current adherents to the church in Salt Lake. In a desire to mainstream themselves, the LDS church has become boring and largely uninspiring. It was the radicalism of the early Church that inspired such tremendous sacrifice and devotion.

My break with Mormonism goes to Joseph Smith, so while I don't hold the beliefs you do, I respect your beliefs very much.
