Information about the Mormon cult. Many of the files you will find here were taken from the Ex-Mormon Web Site --- The best information source for Mormons who want to escape and for people who want to know what it's like to be a Mormon. That web site provides a great many more text files than those I've copied here so you should visit at http://www.exmormon.org/ and check them out. Some of their files are duplicated here because the files may be requested all at once rather than brought up on a browser one at a time. You should download the whole series and then visit the Ex-Mormon Web Site.
