I recently read "Leaving the Saints" which is the story of one woman's departure from the Church of Latter Day Saints. It was filled with stories like those you linked to.

There were also some wonderful aspects she described: open-hearted acceptance and love for children with disabilities (one of her children had Downs Syndrome), the support for new businesses from the community, the care and love in times of trouble, and more. Then there were the judgmental, women-unfriendly, religious police aspects also.

The core religion is rather strange but I find that true in other religions also.
