I then talked to a former Mormon friend of mine and she confirmed that such situations were not all that uncommon.
That is a total smear against every woman who has left mormonism.
How would this "former mormon friend" have gathered this information? And you repeat it as "gospel"?
I did not say it was common, only that it was not all that uncommon.
A rational person would see such a statement as meaning that some who leave the Mormon church conclude there are no moral restraints and act accordingly.
Fortunately, most of those soon come to realize that just because Mormonism is false, not all religions are also false.
