Why you left your religion.
I walked away from the moron (sic) church some 40 years ago. However, I didn't request removal of my name / excommunication, until sometime later.

That was precipitated by a climate of political and human rights differences, that peaked with the excommunication of Sonia Johnson by the LDS Church in 1979.

That her outspoken support for the Equal Rights Amendment was in direct opposition to the church's stated position on the issue, it was made abundantly clear that women were expected to remain subordinate to the direction of (their) men, and the church leaders, in all such matters.

So, it was largely a Freedom Of Speech thing with me - though I sugarcoat it.
