This is what I received from the SIL of our head Continuing Anglican priest about us leaving their church in favor of Catholicism. (we left because of loosey goosey morals and because we were considered “uncharitable” for talking about the evils of contraception, abortion, homosexual “marriage”-this church likes to be a social club not a beacon of light in the world of darkness)
Anyway I was wondering what you all thought of this letter from her. (or how I should take it) Our oldest daughter is 7 and very impressionable…(like most kids)
***[my husband’s name], this message is coming to your page, but it’s for the pair of you. If there were anything at all I could do to rescue you from this life of turmoil and judgmental hostility you seem to be determined to follow, I would do it — and not for you two, although I actually like you both quite a bit. I’d do it for your kids. I know what it’s like to be a kid in such a household. The cruelty you are willing to have toward your oldest daughter just at the moment of her most vulnerable attachments is a terrible thing, and I wish I could stop you.
I know you think you’re doing what’s right - standing for what’s right - trying to make a difference in the world – all of that. But, honey, if you have not love, you’re a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. Blessed are the merciful, and “as we forgive those who trespass against us,” and all the other things you also know. If you are ever ready to learn kindness and the power of mercy, you will find that it is still waiting for you. May God have mercy on you for what you’re doing to your family.
I’m taking the pair of you off my friends list now - please understand why. It’s not because I need to have only the pure or right kind of people around me – it’s because I have a responsibility before God to arrange my life for charity, kindness, mercy, and the like.
Good bye, and love,
She sent this to my husband’s facebook private mail. (probably because she’s chewed me out on several occasions about calling Planned Parenthood “planned murderhood” etc. telling me I sound like a “scared little child” and how offensive it sounds) with me not replying to her attacks.
