My husband and I were previously Mormon, but we’re not very active in the church, ever. We are coming into the Catholic Church this Easter!
A week or two ago, I received a phone call from our visiting teacher from the Mormon church. We spoke for a half an hour, about religion. (I was trying to plant a seed in his head ) He asked if I would like to have official excommunication, and I replied that it didn’t really matter to me, as I don’t hold the Mormon church as ‘real’, anyway. He said he’d inform the leadership, and told me that they may contact me. I said that I didn’t mind.
Today, he called me back, and was not as friendly as the first time. He gave me the name of the bishop of the ward we’d be assigned to, and his home address. He told me we need to write a letter stating that we no longer wish to have communications with the church, and that both my husband and I need to sign it. He said it would be in the best interest of both parties.
Should I do this?
Part of me thinks that it’s only costing me time, and a stamp, and it’s not a big deal, but then I don’t feel it’s necessary. Why should I have to put anything in writing and sign it?
