  •  I agree... it's (13+ / 0-)

    The big difference between my mom and dad, who are divorced but found religion on their own.

    My dad married a hard core evangelical nutjob and it went down hill. You'll go to hell for this, and for that, and for this... Jews are bad, Muslims are bad, everyone is bad. Gays are evil... etc. He annoys me.

    My mom on the other hand goes to a liberal, informal church with a reformed crack addict for a preacher. He tells my mom (and it saddens me that it takes someone to TELL her) that everyone is ok. All religions are fine. No one has absolute knowledge of the truth. God cares about your belief and the good works you do. That is something I can tolerate.

    On a side note... my mom called me the weekend of Vets. Day and told me that they had a speaker at the church talking about the war (I had to fight back the "here we go.") She told me that he said it was horrible over there and all the other stuff I had told her about. She told me she believed him because he was at church and thought I was just being angry because I deployed twice.

    Argh.

      I've had the same experience.
      Knowing something from hard experience, and having my kids not listen to me about it until someone they think is the ultimate authority say the same thing.
      Arrrgh~!
