Crazy vs. Crazy
I don't know if you watch Trading Spouses or not. I do occasionally, and a couple weeks ago I watched an episode with the D'Amico-Flisher/Perrin Family, (the mother is the one sitting on the couch on the FOX website).
Anyway, if you've seen the commercials they built up the show with her going off at the end yelling about the other family doing "dark-sided" things because they practiced Pagan rituals, and had a solstice and whatnot, and the wife is a hynotherapist. They weren't Christians like her and her family, and she considered herself a "God Warrior" whatever that means.

Well, clearly the woman is crazy, but that's besides the point -- or maybe it isn't. But basically I have an overall gripe mainly because Marguerite's (the crazy mother) friends basically bombarded Jeanne (the hynotherpist other mother) about questions on whether she went to church and what she believed and does she believe in God, and on and on, and they were rude, and I don't believe that you should meet people by going:

"Hi, my name is Jane. Nice to meet you, What's your religion? What are your beliefs?"

Then bascially disassociating yourself from them if they're not like your own. That's just me.

I figure if you MUST be with all Christians, go to an all Christian church and don't bother trying to meet new people because you can't know without asking and if you just can't bring yourself to talk to someone of another religion then you're wasting time.

Maguerite was insane about the other family not being Christian and even tried to convert the children, telling them to 'find God' and whatnot. But they couldn't make a peep about their beliefs or Moon chants or whatever else they did becasue it was 'dark-sided. What if they said Christianity was 'dark-sided'? That would be their opinon just like what she said was her opinion. It was just unfair and I didn't like it.

I don't care what people believe, as long as they don't try and make me believe it. Though, I have serious problems with religions that use animal sacrifices because I love animals and I just don't like it and while I somewhat understand it, I still think it's very inhumane. BUT, I would understand that that's what they do and because of how I feel about animals I wouldn't be able to attend a ritual because of that fact.

But I would never act like Maguerite. That's just crazy all over.

    I've seen that show a few times. I, generally, try to stay away from shows like that because fighting, yelling & emotional immaturity stresses me out.

    My husband and I actually met at church. I haven't gone in YEARS. I am turned off by most Christians. Many tend to have very closed minds, which drives me crazy. I also cannot stand hypocrisy which also runs rampant with many Christians..."busybodiness" can be not so cleverly disguised if you add a "pray for him/her".

    My Mother-in-Law wouldn't let her young son play at a friend of his house because his parents were lesbians...it made my husband and I SO MAD!

    ...ooh! Sorry...went off on a little rant there.

    Go ahead and rant HDD, that's what I'm here for. LOL. I don't usually watch that show either, VERY occasionally do I watch it, but I caught that one.

    I just don't want anyone telling me, 'oh, praise Jesus, it's the only way!' And closing their mind to anything else, or really just interrogating me on my religion/beliefs.

    I don't like it when people do it to other people too. Especially the 'why?' question like it's any of their business. Ugh!
