Angry Mormon Lady update

June 24, 2011

“Well, I’ve gotten through everyone on the list,” Roseli told me. She’s talked to every woman named in a little discussion she had with, let’s call her, Angry Mormon Lady. I wrote about Angry last month after she had listed a half-dozen women whom she claimed were keeping their distance from our family. Why? Because I happen not to share the same cosmic and theological opinions as they do.

Roseli had fun, by the way, with the image of some sort of list being passed around in Relief Society—the kind on which one signs up to feed the missionaries—but this list saying something like, “If you’d like to ostracize Roseli Zimmerman because her husband is an out atheist, and because you just never know how his skepticism might contaminate her or you by association, please write your name below.”

So what did Roseli find out? Each woman she talked to denied keeping their distance from her and most expressed some anger that their name would even come up in such a way. This means that either all these women somehow managed to enter into a long chat with Roseli, despite supposedly ostracizing her, and lied, or Angry Mormon Lady got carried away and was just making up lies to justify her own anger.

Incidentally, after posting about Angry Mormon Lady, I got quite a few comments and emails, all very positive and supportive. I was moved by your support, frankly. Thank you.

Don't be angry, Angry. I've got no hard feelings. We just peoples, you and me.

  1. Angry Mormon Lady needs to relax a bit.

  2. Hey there, I just wanted to let you know I found your blog earlier this morning and have been working my way through it, enjoying myself all the while. It’s always nice to see other Atheist dads out there.

    Keep up the good fight, AD!

    According to his own works…

    But behold, and lo, we saw the glory and the inhabitants of the telestial world, that they were as innumerable as the stars in the firmament of heaven, or as the sand upon the seashore; And heard the voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow the knee, and every tongue shall confess to him who sits upon the throne forever and ever; For they shall be judged according to their works, and every man shall receive according to his own works, his own dominion, in the mansions which are prepared; And they shall be servants of the Most High; but where God and Christ dwell they cannot come…
