My paternal grandmother has always disliked me purely because my mother isn’t a Muslim Arab

nabokovsshadows:

And that I was raised catholic. Yet people expect me to care about her and put up with her judgemental bullshit just because she’s old. I don’t think so.

Just another great example of religion destroying what should have been a meaningful family bond.

Religious belief dulls the mind and obscures reality. To be closed to criticism of religion is to advocate for an insular, ethnocentric society. It's a kind of isolationism. The fact is all people share one objective world and when we can agree on the realities of that world, we can begin to develop solutions to improve everyone's lives. Being critical of dogma is, I think, the most important step in achieving globalized equality.

bookphile:

Okay, tell me how “I do not want to see hateful, ignorant, toxic posts about religions” translates to being closed off to criticism about religion.

Please tell me, for the love of science, tell me.

In that case, I guess we’re on the same page. Maybe I read a connotation into your original post that wasn’t there.

I am really disappointed in my own mother.

I come from a super conservative christian family (aka my mom) and today we were getting help from “missionaries” in order to move out the old furniture and build the new couches (finally, that old couch was broken to hell and back).

And my mom was…

She comes from a background that dictates antiquated, chauvinistic social mores with an iron fist, and one that’s especially strict toward women and their bodies. She sees the church as her authority in life, so in the home, where she is your authority she imitates the church’s style by standing on your throat the way it stands on hers.

She embraced that oppression. You don’t have to.
