Q: Did Elaine become a Mormon?
A: Well, she always was but she was never active until she was an adult and then she became quite active in it.
Q: Was your mother quite active?
A: Well, in a way. Sometimes she was and sometimes she wasn’t. It depended on what she had to do, I suppose.
Q: What made you decide not to become active?
A: Well, I am too much of a doubting Thomas. I ask too many why’s.
Q: A skeptic.
A: How come this and how come that?
Q: Well, I think that is great.
A: And so, I didn’t do well in churches.
Q: Were you asked to leave? And not disrupt things?
A: No. No. I would just leave myself because I didn’t want to stay. And I remember as a little kid I used to.. We had two churches and I used to prefer one over the other and I suppose I wasn’t supposed to go to the one I preferred.
Q: I suppose that was the Baptist?
A: Yes, and so I didn’t go at all. If I couldn’t go to the one I wanted to, I wouldn’t go at all. So I didn’t.
Q: Did you find any problems with playmates or parties or anything?
