I am constantly amazed at how hard many people work at trying to reconcile their beliefs with a certain religion, usually the one they grew up with. It almost seems as if they cannot bear thinking about having a spirituality that exists outside of that religion, even though there are things that they fundamentally disagree with about that religion. In the case of this thoughtful Mormon guest I kept thinking that she was trying so hard intellectually to justify being Mormon despite the many things she disagrees with about the official Mormon position on things. I think that an interesting program would be one that dealt with the point at which people actually break with their religion rather than trying to go through all kinds of mental gymnastics trying to reconcile with it.
