I recognize that I was very angry with the Church–not only for the indoctrination that I had experienced and the stack of falsehoods it had forced me to choke down, but also for the years I had spent sacrificing my own happiness so that I could be of service to its mandate. This experience has not been unlike being very angry with a parent or mentor after you discover their major faults. When it comes to the Church, you don’t have to look hard to see its refusal to acknowledge its deficits, which are exhibited in its continued devotion to the magisterium and its run-amok theocratic egotism. The Church relentlessly demands capitulation from believers and nonbelievers alike.
–Catherine Dunphy, From Apostle to Apostate
