I get what you are saying op. Most of my relatives are on facebook and so I thought it would be a nifty idea to start a family reunion site to have
periodic meetings, have dinner, get caught up. This is the only reason I was on facebook other than my niece getting me to be allies with her on one
of those stupid flash games.
It was a blast, we shared old photos of the family, got acquainted with people's children I have never met. Until one day one cousin joins and fills
the board up with anti-gay sermon videos. Instead of speaking to me privately about being the "gay cousin" he does all this passive aggressive
Pretty much this was targeted at me and if wanted to hear these kind of sermons I would be at a church that preaches this or on the Westboro Baptist
website. Besides that the family reunion dinners were often buried where other family could not find them and they nagged me privately to re-confirm
dates and such. They were there but, one had to dig though about 3 pages of sermons.
I started the group and just eventually handed ownership of the group over to a nice female cousin and bowed out. Since then the group has pretty much
disbanded. It isn't that I don't think people can believe in Jesus but, to use him as a weapon to make yourself appear more holy and cause disharmony
at the wrong time is annoying.
