… but you can disagree with every bit of doctrine and still be a Mormon.
I have a problem with that line of thinking. If you don’t believe in the doctrine of X, you’re not X. At that point you are some derivative of X. And that really draws to question, if you don’t believe the alleged word-of-god as defined in the doctrine of X, then what is the basis of your belief unless you are a prophet yourself? If nothing but “gut feeling” … then you really have to admit you’re just believing in personal fantasy.
You either believe a religion’s dogma or you don’t.
Yes, yes. Of course. My statement is in reference to what it would take for the Church to remove you from their rolls: Either you ask for them to remove your name, or you fight against the Church.
See, on the one hand you have people trying to paint the Church as being horrible and abusive for kicking anyone out, and on the other hand you have people saying the Church is inflating its numbers by not removing the people who don’t “really believe.” Kind of a Catch-22, don’t you think?
