Doubting Dogma

I grew up in the Mormon Church, but after years of discomfort and feeling like I didn't belong, my religious doubts came to a head. I'm Molly Un-Mormon. Join me and my friend and co-host Ris McCool as we talk about Mormonism and my journey away from the church.

Welcome to the Doubting Dogma podcast, the accompanying show to the Doubting Dogma blog, where we pair Molly Un-Mormon, a former Mormon now "doubting her dogma" (see what we did there?), and the corrupting hussy that told her about CogDiss, Marissa Alexa McCool. Together, they'll try to work out what's going on in the world while also having fun at the story's expense. 

(First off, I'd like to apologize in advance for the audio quality on this. I started hearing some static when we started recording after moving to a different room so we wouldn't get my husband gaming in the background. I thought it was just on my end, not on Zencastr's. It was still a fun conversation and I hope the static doesn't distract from it too badly.)

This week, Andrew Torrez from the Opening Arguments Podcast (http://openargs.com/) joins Molly to talk about his deconversion and how he felt when he went with his wife to Mormon church when they had started dating. They finish the episode with a quick rundown of the Crazy Ark Debacle of Ken Ham trying to pull Noah's Wool over the Kentucky State Legislature's eyes.

This week, Molly and Ris chat with Tank, an Ex-Mo that reached out to Molly after hearing her on Naked Mormonism. They talk about being raised in the church and the cognitive dissonance involved with compartmentalizing everything. They also talk about the temple rituals and how learning the details was the straw that broke Tank's belief.

 Matthew Maxon and Erik Ryder of the Odd Atheist Friends Podcast (https://www.facebook.com/OAFPodcast/) join Molly to talk about Erik's plans to walk across North Carolina to earn money in order to build a new school building for the kids he worked with in Zambia. For the second half of the show, they go through chapter two of The Miracle of Forgiveness and discover that according to Kimball, we're all God's Gimp. Matthew gives us a Bible MadLib to close out the show.

This Week, Bryce Blankenagel of the Naked Mormonism podcast (http://www.nakedmormonismpodcast.com) joins Molly to talk about Pioneer Day, the most Mormon of "holidays" that's only observed in Utah as it's the celebration of the Mormon pioneers entering the Salt Lake Valley, Molly's memories of the Sesquicentennial and reflections of going on "Trek" to the Martin's Cove area in Wyoming. Keeping with the theme, Bryce shares with us the story of the Willie and Martin Handcart Companies and the horrors they faced while crossing the plains after a series of bad logistical decisions.

This Week, Bryce Blankenagel of the Naked Mormonism podcast (http://www.nakedmormonismpodcast.com) joins Molly and Ris to talk about growing up a Utah Mormon compared to Molly's childhood in Colorado. Through the conversation they talk about perceived sin, the misogyny when an institution is run by the geriatric ward, the church welfare program, and the endless abyss of church history.
