Kicked out of BYU Idaho

Regular readers will recall that I’m actively trying to archive all direct references to Mormonism that show up on PostSecret. This past Sunday’s batch included this secret:

Text: Getting kicked out of college was the best thing that has ever happened to me!!!

The other secrets I’ve archived can be found here.

    Somehow, I don’t doubt it. There are horrible people at BYU-Idaho; if it weren’t for my teachers, I would’ve given up on the church because of the students there.

    BYU IDAHO ROCKS!!!!!
    You can’t judge the church on the people you have to judge it on the teachings don’t fall away because of others…. LDS people are human too mistakes are going to happen just like with everyone don’t hate all of us do to a few of us. Merry Christmas

    I doubt it as well… I find often people try to make comments like this to justify their own poor behavior… like people that say an affair was the best thing to happen to their relationship… PLEASE!! I am sure there are many college students that are jerks, as that is what the teens are all about. And they are just on their own and often push limits, etc. Remember they are just out of HIGH SCHOOL…
    But why did you lie and pretend if you didn’t want to go to BYU or be a Mormon. That says more about that person… everyone should have the confidence and believe in yourself to make your own life path… and doing what you THINK others want for you if you are miserable… shows a lack of personal integrity. It is sad that she would go to a college and cause disruption by being a “problem child”, instead of choosing a college or place that supported her believe system. Everyone would have been happier.

    I just started my freshman year at BYU Idaho and its one of the best things that ever happened to me. I love God and Jesus Christ, and I love the students here. We just had I-Night Saturday and it was so much fun. We’re having a back to school block party this Friday. I love my classes as well. My teachers are so funny and they know how to help you. This is God’s Plan and I’m sticking with it. Go BYU-Idaho!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Byu Idaho sucks. Too damn strict. People are two faced. One person Sunday and someone else completely different during the week. Dating is a joke there. You get looked at differently if you don’t go to FHE, Devotional, or one sunday of church. People judge you if you are the least bit different. Noone is perfect and I get that but things are taken to extremes at Byu Idaho. Fuck em happier without out these fake ass people anyway

    You’re crazy. Why in the world would you say that? college is the best thing that could happen to you. Maybe it’s because you weren’t smart enough to realize that college is essential. Crazy.
