I am seriously disturbed by this. My mother, a Sunday school teacher and someone I previously believed to be a striving Catholic, has gotten a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. Honestly it sort of makes me annoyed and confused, considering that I am struggling with sins of impurity and she just picks up a pornographic novel and has it right out in front of the whole family. My dad has been unwilling to say anything. I don’t know what to do. It doesn’t feel right to confront my mom about moral issues when I am still a kid and have plenty of sins of my own, but I just can’t believe this. Over the past few days I’ve seriously been thinking about taking the book and hiding it in the attic or something.
I just don’t get it. How can this happen? It’s sort of like you would expect a man to deal with stuff like this, but my own mother? I am really confused and frankly quite a bit scared by this.
Any ideas? Does the commandment to honor one’s father and mother apply when they are committing a grave sin? What a sad world we live in…I never would have thought I would have found myself in this position. Usually I am not one to look for signs of demons and the devil, but if there ever was one it is this horrifying “phenomenon” that is sweeping the nation. Please give prayers to crush these wicked demons which are crushing our mothers, our last stronghold of morality!!! What will we do without strong, moral mothers??? What should I do?
