My mother is catholic. This morning, I didn't get up for church. Why? Because I don't believe in that shit. I don't believe in God, purgatory, or any of that stuff. She left because she would be late. About and hour and 20 minutes later, mother comes home, and starting freaking out and yelling at me. Now, I've told my mother that I don't believe in adult fairy tales, but I still got slammed with a punishment. I'm not qqing about the punishment, but I am kind of upset why I got it. tbh, I guess I should put this in the sound off thread...........

Thoughts?

EDITS GALORE:

I do not swear at my mom.
I do not insult her religion.
Most of the time I go to church, because I understand that that's her rule.
I have sat her down and talked with her about it, in a civil manner.

My mother does this too, but I don't say to her that it's an "adult fairytale." I've told her that I don't believe in anything and I don't care about what she believes in, she can do whatever the hell she wants. However, she still forces it upon me which is what I don't understand.
#9
Listen bro i have the same issue at home, the exact same...

your mom has been brought up witht his from the day she was born by her parents and its all she knows, everything she thinks is right. She NOT going to change her mind no matter what you say, because she doesn't want to believe it's not true.

the best way to go about it is to just straight up ignore/not get involved with the arguments, just go to church for an hour and listen to your ipod or some shit man, just don't create unnecessary tension

Okay, I have something to clarify. I DID NOT say that she follow an adult fairytale, say the word shit, or act disrespectful. I just said it here, because it was what I was thinking. I don't talk to my parents that way. I told her simply, that I don't believe in it. So get off my case on that, thanks.

Because, like it or not, her religion gives her an obligation to make you go. Even if you don't want to go, she's still your mother. When you're a big boy and move out, then you can stop going, but there's not much you can do currently other than suck it up and not make a bigger deal out of it.

my bad then. If you did not use those words or act disrespectful, then I guess that she shouldn't punish you just because you're a nonbeliever.

I do normally do this. But this was one week that I said **** it, I'm really not in the mood, I'm tired, etc, etc.

That still doesn't justify a punishment, in my opinion.

Enjoy the for answering me without jumping down my throat.

That really sucks, my parents are kinda similar but far less crazy, and they only expect me to go 3 times a year. I just keep myself busy by correcting everything the priest says in my head. I had ten minutes just from hearing Jesus described as 'omnipotent'.

Steps:


1. Fill her handbag with condoms


2. Go to Church with her


3. As she walks towards the pew, "accidentally" knock her handbag out of her hands.


Then SHE won't go to Church anymore either.

Nevermind man, sounds like your mom is a fundie. I'd call fundamental christianity "that shit" to. even regular everyday catholics like myself can't stand those people.


EDIT2:

V yeah, it just didn't click in my mind until just right now lol.

I can see this side of the argument, too though. It is her house, and I should abide by said rules, BUT I should have a choice whether I want to believe in a religion or not, in my opinion.

My parents are the same way. I dont believe in it and my mom is still trying to get me confirmed. The sad thing is they only go to church like 5 times a year and they try to tell me they believe in the catholic religion?
#28
Have a little respect for other peoples beliefs.

Edit: You're basically being disrespectful to someone, ever heard of religious tolerance?

of course you haven't....and this thread proves it.

parents have never understood this and never will. They think that you HAVE to go to every single instance of every single committment that you've allegedly made ever... why do people get sick days/vacation days from work and shit man, because you just don't wanna go every ****ing day. It's not like they're gonna have a huge rebellion or witch hunt on you because you didn't show one week, ****. No one even noticed, i'm sure

but yeah, i dont think she punished you for not going, but for not obeying her, which is even gayer. there's no way to deal with these types of people man, it will only result in you going insane... My mother is one of those types of people, to the nth degree, shes "NEVER" wrong because no matter what kind of argument someone puts up, she has some sort of semantics to dish out that deflects the conversation from the real issue and nothing ever gets resolved, but SHE'S never wrong because the issue never gets talked about, because she deflects it every time!!!


RAAAGGGE lol

i've learned to put up with it man, and if you don't too then your home life is gnna start to suck man, sorry but thats how it goes. Unless your mom isn't quite like mine and can be convinced, in which case go ahead and try but it might only result in more problems lol

as long as youre not an asshole about it then dont worry, just tell your mom that you don't believe in it, im having the same problem...well im agnostic, and from what i can tell, youre atheist.

but dont go about shitting on her religion, its just disrespectful, and essentially not cool, ask her to respect your beliefs and maybe she will (i dont know your mom or the type of person she is), but you gotta respect hers, otherwise itll just lower her opinion about your beliefs because itll make her think that all atheist just spit on everyone else's beliefs

You don't communicate your thoughts well on an internet forum. It would be surprising if you were able to do it during face-to-face with a parent on an issue you disagree on.

Fair doesn't matter. If you're an adult, you make your own decisions. But until that time, your parents make decisions for you and allow you to make the decisions THEY decide you can make. Simple as.

Stop whining and start actually communicating. You might be pleasantly surprised at how much more respect you'll get.

Good luck

The point is he does a poor job of communicating. If HE wants to be taken seriously, HE will have to do a better job of it. His mother has no motivation to do so.

that's not necessarily true, tone and inflection can be understood by how words go together, sentences, etc.

BUT i'll admit that i got caught not reading SYK's whole post and missed the point i did the same thing i get pissed at other people for doing lol and i got caught my bad, but my original point still stands i believe
