As part of our ongoing series on 21st century Mormonism outside of the United States, today we interview Douglas Stilgoe. Douglas is a 23 year old, 3rd generation Mormon raised in Warwickshire, England (Coventry England Stake).
Douglas’ story is interesting for many reasons:
- He discusses life as a Mormon in the UK in the 2000’s.
- He was raised in the same area as Tom Phillips, the high-ranking Mormon church leader in the U.K. who lost his faith and left the church AFTER receiving his 2nd anointing.
- His story explores how painful and damaging Mormonism can be on families when a parent loses their faith.
- He discusses his own very recent loss of faith as a young adult in the U.K., after being a very devout believing youth (just over the past year).
