As non-LDS, you will get some sort of a special treatment in school.I have to take only 3 classes on church religion which focus mainly on the Book of Mormon and Doctrines. These classes are notoriously useless and they got lots of complaints from LDS and non-LDS alike because they are pretty hard.Most of non LDS friends said it’s an easy A class where non-LDS can get to know each other and make fun of the atmosphere at BYU. Most non-LDS students at BYU are not fully committed to the Honor Code.I definitely know some non-LDS students who had sex, drank coffee, bought grocery on Sunday, and bashed about the church. My close LDS friend told me that some of these people are not that friendly but they force themselves to be friendly to non-member and it’s true. As soon as one kid know I’m not a member, he set me up to talk to his whole apartment where all his roommates are returned missionaries.I guess it wasn't technically a rape, because he didn't penetrate, but it is the worst most helpless moment of my life.” I spoke to over a dozen former and current BYU students and professors for this story, including representatives from BYU’s Young Mormon Feminists group, as well as five sexual assault survivors.Everybody had or had heard stories similar to Sarah’s: the abuse would start small, with "lustful thoughts" they were blamed for inspiring.When abuse does occur, church leaders "counsel" survivors with LDS literature that proclaims that it's better to die fighting than to fall victim to rape.Some victims are even spiritually ostracized until a church official deems them repentant.

Hence, I think most students at BYU observe the Honor Code…with modification. In October, I got two invitations to go to General Conference, a semi-annual events where LDS prophet and apostles speak in Salt Lake City.She would read scripture and pray for long periods of time, hoping that somehow her actions would stop tempting her boyfriend.It wasn't enough: The tipping point happened one evening after he complained about being "too tired" to take Sarah home. But, I have it from good sources (a few "Jack Mormons," also known as Mormons who were born and raised but no longer practicing, as well as an ex-communicated one). The solution to every religious believer's ultimate dilemna: how do you have sex without having sex. I can't in good faith say I've ever experienced this phenomenon first hand because I'm A) not a BYU graduate and B) not fucking retarded.
