Facebook Groups for Unorthodox Members
The Mormon Hub - Closed Group
This is a forum for the discussion of Mormonism and Mormon-related issues. It operates as a separate entity under the Sunstone Foundation. Discussions in the group should reflect a desire by participants to maintain some connection (religious, familial, cultural, intellectual?) to the Mormon community, broadly defined. Discussions that are openly hostile to Mormonism and that focus exclusively on separation from the Mormon community are inappropriate. Similarly, discussions that are excessively zealous or evangelical in their support of the doctrines and practices of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also inappropriate (in other words, this forum is not a place for “missionary work” on either side of the belief spectrum). Generally speaking, everything in between these two extremes is acceptable.

Mormon Stories Podcast Community - Closed Group
Mormon Stories is a community of support that seeks to help people constructively navigate the waters of uncorrelated Mormonism. We strive to build a safe bridge between tradition and belief and uncorrelated belief or non-belief. We attempt to create a respectful, safe place for believers and non-believers alike. While we absolutely validate the essential role of anger and mourning in the process of losing a traditional LDS testimony, we also recognize that there are already many places on the internet that facilitate anger and venting. While we support these places and help direct people to them, we feel strongly that in order for Mormon Stories to be a safe bridge between traditional belief and uncorrelated or non-belief we must strive to make Mormon Stories safe for believers and non-believers alike.
