The Mormon Spectrum website was created by a group of people who self-identify as being a part of the spectrum. We understand what these different spaces look and feel like, along the spectrum, and feel there is a need for an online space that is neutral, thorough and feels safe to anyone in any part of the spectrum.
We recognize, and empathize with the overwhelming feelings that may accompany the discovery of information outside of the correlated church material. In creating this site, we want to show that a spectrum exists within the world of Mormonism. That there isn’t just a one size fits all Mormon and that many people are navigating their relationship, with the church and Mormonism, in different ways as they move away from identifying as an orthodox Mormon. That there are options.
We also recognize that there can be significant misunderstandings and hurt feelings between people who are in different parts of the spectrum. We hope that with a better understanding of the various perspectives within the spectrum we will forge better understanding and empathy between us all, so that our relationships are not harmed by our different views and choices.
Our goal is to provide access to the best resources available for Exploring, Unorthodox and Post/Ex Mormons in the hopes that they will be able to explore, discover and choose what works for them. We hope to provide a safe and empowering space for those who are on this journey or trying to understand loved ones who are.
