To Be Mormon, or Not to Be
Based on in-depth interviews with two former Mormons, Cecilia and Andrew, this chapter presents the life stories of two apostates, exploring the personal reasons and circumstances behind their rejection of religion. While their stories are very different, they also have some matters in common. Both strongly reacted to the Mormon Church's opposition to gay marriage. Cecilia is very supportive of gay rights, and she found herself alienated from her religious milieu. Andrew is a gay man and was forced to choose between his religion and his sexuality.
