Why Mormons Leave

John Dehlin of Mormon Stories Podcast has created a new website and Facebook page titled and devoted to the subject of "Why Mormons Leave." In his description of the rationale behind and purpose of this project, Dehlin writes:
I just wanted to let you know that Mormon Stories Podcast and Mormon Stories Podcast Community are embarking on a new initiative to build greater empathy and support for people who choose to leave the LDS church. We think it's going to be important.
I applaud this worthwhile new project and hope that it helps bring understanding and empathy for those making the journey out of Mormonism. Although Why Mormons Leave is done from within Mormon culture, it is an approach in keeping with that of our Transitions resource produced by those outside of by sympathetic to Mormon culture.
