I’m in a discussion with this girl who is speaking of catholicism and christianity, and she has no idea what she is talking about and is acting like she does. What she is saying is so dumb, and I need some Idea’s to set her straight so others don’t look at this and take her opinion which is so inaccurate. This is regarding that episode of trading spouces with that woman who went crazy.
*Honestly, what she believed was ****. That family said grace at the dinner table and went to church with her and put up with her insulting and ignorant attempts to convert them. They asked nothing of her that could be considered inappropriate. All they asked her for was respect.
This woman and her friends offended me, as someone who is Jewish and not Catholic but is dating a Catholic man (who was also offended). Hypnosis and Astrology is not “darkness” and even if she believed that it was, no belief is being forced upon her.
People like her are a detriment to society. I would be embarrassed if anyone from Europe were to see her and think that she is an accurate representation of America. The bible’s interpretation, just like any other document’s, must be adapted as times change. IMHO, it’s best to look at it as a guideline in our daily lives to live morally and treat others with the respect that we’d like to be shown. Just because something is not found in the bible or explicitly promoted in the bible doesn’t make it “darkness”.
I find the “darkness” to be her dislike of education leading to her daughter’s lack of knowledge about birth
control and safe sex.
(And as a matter of fact, if you don’t believe it then IT’S NOT A SIN! It’s not your place, or anyone else’s, to judge the actions of another human being regardless of their religion. That’s just small minded. Judge yourself. It’d help us all)
