Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons, opened up about his years practicing Mormonism as he declared that he’s on a “different path” than loved ones since stepping away from the church.

In a recent interview with People magazine, the singer said he grew up in a “really conservative” home before attending Brigham Young University and serving as a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints missionary for two years in Nebraska.

Reynolds, who said he once felt “really angry” toward Mormonism and described feeling as if he’d “been duped,” said he’s had a complicated relationship with religion and struggled with it.

“There’s obviously parts of the Mormon religion that I feel pretty strongly are harmful, especially to our gay youth,” said Reynolds, an ally to the LGBTQ+ community.

“At times I feel pretty isolated from my family, but I also love them and am close to them and see them, and there’s no animosity there. I’m on a different path. I have to love myself enough to follow my truth.”

The singer has previously taken on the church’s treatment of the LGBTQ+ community including in the 2018 documentary “Believer.”
