My mother teased me in a mean spirited way for being a white man - she is fully white and so am I




Creation thread clears this up:

This of course is refuted by:
Pope Leo XIII said this in the 19th century, post-Reformation times in which most of the world population started to believe in a globe earth and heliocentrism. Instead of being divided about non-issues, that don't affect us in any way, like the age of the Earth, you ought to focus on core principles and moral issues that are the glue of a community. That it took ages and not days to create the universe sounds reasonable to me, if you can sleep better at night for believing in YEC, there you go. All I'm saying is that literalism is dangerous and one of the many reasons civilization degenerated that rapidly.

I stop here because it doesn't belong to the thread.


This is interesting. Let´s say women are super dependent on well-being of their children and they would literally die for them, but on the other hand, they are willing to watch their life get ruined without being agitated.

My good friend has 2 children and one of them is a white boy with US citizenship. Fortunately for him, he´s not living in US (but living in Eastern Europe). I sent her tweet from United Airlines about picking 50% of pilots from non-white minotities and women. She replied "that´s just where the world is heading to". I reminded her, that her son is white and if they lived in US, it might destroy him. She told me, that I see the situation too tragically and that she believes, that if you do something with love, soon or later you will succeed. I gave her an examples to imagine happening:
"We are sorry, but we can´t accept your son to our school, because he didn´t fit in quotas designated for white men."
"Mom, I have just went through 100th job interview and as usually, they gave priority to someone from minority."
I also told her, that frustration coming from such persecution could easily result in suicide or other tragedy.

And somehow, she still couldn´t understand, what I am trying to tell her and doesn´t see the situation "so bad". Just as a natural progress.


As a Christian you ought to forgive when somebody actually begs for forgiveness.
This is totally wrong. The Church calls on us to forgive those who don't even ask forgiveness. We must retain no enmity in our hearts for any harm that people caused us. We don't have to be their friends, and don't have to be a part of their lives, but we cannot let the sun rise on our anger towards anyone.


Presumably you're intending to give her grandchildren some day - ask her how she feels working against the interests of her own grandchildren.
Thank you kel, that's good advice.
Did you speak up? Let where you stand be known. This is a personal boundary thing as well.

I love my family but your own mother disrespected you based on your demographic. Tell her that's fucked up and you don't want to associate with her if she's going to behave like this and get an apology.
Yes I did, I pushed back with aggression and won that battle.


The original text contains an inaccuracy.

It states that she recently texted me, however that was ~2 years ago.

Apologies to all readers for this.
"Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you."

I wouldn't go against that advice. (or commandment?)

If your mother is posing danger to you, then avoid her. But don't start to hate her, no matter what.
Because unforgiveness will put you in conflict with God. And you don't want that surely.
You can't control her thinking and mindset.
But you can control your reaction to her.
Christ also said:

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple' in LUKE 14:26

"Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me." IN MATTHEW 10:37

Well men, it's official.

Brother, my advice for you is this:

Jesus only obliges us to HONOR OUR PARENTS. Not to love them or agree with them.
and YOU WILL HONOR YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER by behaving in a decent way, being a servant of Christ and living for the truth.

A son who has a good relationship with his parents, but is a fornicator and / or a homosexual is destroying and humiliating his own family honor. This son, no matter how generous he is to his parents, he is dishonoring them.

When Christ says you should hate your parents and not love them more than you love Christ it means that:

When it comes to a situation where you have to decide on, please your parents (agree with the degeneration they believe) or preach the truth to their faces and thereby destroy the love relationship between you and them, you must decide on the second option.
