Reason #24 Why I Won’t Return to Mormonism–Karl Butcher
Karl Butcher was “born into” the LDS church, and served a mission. However, he left it and here explains why:
Why do I not want to go back to the Mormon church?
Criticism isn’t accepted there. If your priesthood leader does something wrong, you aren’t allowed to say anything about it. If you do, it is your fault for not following the Lord’s Servants.
The only thing a church leader can get in trouble for is for breaking laws that land them in Jail.
NO institution and NO leader should ever be above criticism. The Mormon Church insists that they are.
I’ll never go back to such a totalitarian system.
