    I come from a rather religious family. My father was going to be a priest and my mother just simply likes to go and be involved. I myself have been taught about the Bible since I was very young, starting around the preschool age, as my parents are very religious, I've gone to church for as long as I can remember, and I've been enrolled in every godforsaken church class/prayer group under the sun. But I absolutely cannot stand church. I understand all of the lessons, but I absolutely despise the blatant hypocrisy that the church rails on and on about, about how god loves everyone and then they go on and screech about how certain people are going to hell, as if they have the jurisdiction to determine that. It's boring- they say the same **** over and over again as if praying will actually change what's wrong with the world rather than wasting an hour doing jack ****. I'm pretty much an atheist, all the religious **** I've been through has made me that way if I'm being honest, but I feel if I'm going to find God, it's going to be on my own terms, not sitting in some stuffy room listening to a man wheedle on about god for an hour and about how we're all going to go to hell if we don't do this or that. But how do I tell my parents about this? I've tried numerous times before but they constantly insist that i go with them to church, and everytime I go the less religious I become, but I don't know how to communicate this to them without them losing their marbles. What should I do?

  • What would you do if your teenage son keeps calling you gay in public?

    I mean, my personal life is NOT his business, nor does he have the right to judge my personal lifestyle or choices.

  • I don't mean to rant about my child but motherhood is not enjoyable?

    Best answer: Are you doing this alone? If that's the case, you need some help. That might be a grandparent, Aunt, uncle, friend. Find some resources to get some help. If you are overwhelmed, it's going to show in your son and his behavior. Take some time to go on vacation with your son, time for recreation, time just... show more
    Best answer: Are you doing this alone? If that's the case, you need some help. That might be a grandparent, Aunt, uncle, friend.

    Find some resources to get some help. If you are overwhelmed, it's going to show in your son and his behavior.

    Take some time to go on vacation with your son, time for recreation, time just to talk.

    Is your son ADHD? If so, reduce sugar intake and junk foods. Hey him OUTSIDE for exercise and play.

  • I brought my son a $23 cake for his birthday and he doesn't want to eat it?

    Best answer: You say "OK, we will talk at Christmas about what you want then." That's it. Don't get upset, don't get angry. Show him that you're not fazed by any of this. Don't get him a replacement gift. If money isn't the perfect gift, I don't know what it. That card would have let him... show more
    Best answer: You say "OK, we will talk at Christmas about what you want then." That's it. Don't get upset, don't get angry. Show him that you're not fazed by any of this. Don't get him a replacement gift. If money isn't the perfect gift, I don't know what it. That card would have let him choose anything he wanted.

    In the future, ask him what he would like, rather than just spending money on him.

    He sounds like a teenage brat. Don't buy him things if he can't appreciate them.

    Frankly, for his next birthday, just get him a birthday greeting card, not a gift card.

    And if there was a $50 card in the garbage, I'd fish it out and use it on myself if I were you. And I'd eat the cake myself and enjoy it. Whole Foods makes fabulous cakes!

    If you want to be a little mean to him, ask if you can video him talking about why he threw out the card, so you can keep it for the future. Then keep it, and someday if he's a better person, you can play it back and show him what you had to deal with at this age.

  • What does the Bible say about masturbation (serious question)?

    Best answer: Not much. The sin is has more to do with the porn you use or lustful images you have to masturbate with. The act itself can happen while asleep when you have no control. Same thing as sexy dreams.

    its my birthday tomorrow and i wanted to have a family dinner tonight. The problem is my niece and nephew live with my parents. They are very loud kids really hard to calm down, they talk over you, tattle on eachother 24/7, etc. two weeks ago i told my mom i want to have dinner at this nice restaurant in my town and asked if she could come and find a babysitter, she said yes. My boyfriend made the reservation for 7 people. i wanted a babysitter for the kids because i wanted us to be able to have drinks, no kids menus for once, enjoy the good food and have adult conversation with no interuption and no worry of keeping the kids occupied. thats all i wanted because i never see my family anymore and if i do im not able to have a decent conversation because the behavior issues of the kids. anyways i called her multiple times the past two weeks to make sure she had a babysitter i was really looking forward to this dinner and she said yes nana is doing it every time. Last night i made sure there was a babysitter she said yes. Today i confirmed reservation of 7 with this fancy restaurant restaurantand then called my mom and said nana is coming right? she said no but ill dress the kids up itll be fun to take them! not aknowldeging the past two weeks of me urging no kids. if this was just a spare of the moment thing itd be no problem but this is a special occasion for me that i had planned for weeks and was really looking forward too. am i being dumb

  • If your husband was killed in a car accident would you raise your kid(s) by yourself?

    Best answer: Well yeah, of course. It's not like I have a backup guy standing by to play daddy in case daddy #1 kicks the bucket.

  • Am I "too strict"?

    My son seems to think that I am "too strict" because I take away his phone for a few hours while he studies and does his homework. I do not think this is strict, I am just trying to make sure that he does his work.

  • How to politely tell your 8 year old daughter u need Mommy time!?

    Best answer: You tell your daughter that you aren't getting enough sleep during the week with her in the bed. Tell her that from now on, she sleeps in her own bed on school nights/work nights.

    Best answer: You tell your daughter that you aren't getting enough sleep during the week with her in the bed. Tell her that from now on, she sleeps in her own bed on school nights/work nights. If you don't work on Saturdays, then Friday nights can be girls' night and she can sleep in your bed if you don't have other plans (such as a date). You're the parent; it's time to start acting like her mother instead of your daughter's friend. If you raise her right with firm boundaries, she'll learn to respect you as an adult and will still be your friend throughout life.

  • How is telling someone they’re responsible for their actions loving and caring?

    Best answer: How is it not?

    I've never seen anything good happen from giving someone the impression they are NOT responsible for their own actions. That only leads to stupid destructive actions.
