How do you feel now that you have posted this? Ill bet you feel great! Good for you.
This type of criticism, and mockery disgusts me. NO I AM NOT PROTESTANT.
This is unnecessary to the topic at hand , and an unjustified attack of others religion.

Seems like you have taken problems between a mother and daughter, and once again turned it into an agenda to bash on Christians..
Yep , no matter what the thread is really about, you find a way to sneak your hatred of Christians into it..

Until you can move it's probably better just to keep opinions to yourself, chill a bit and learn the subtle eye roll. Hell, my mother still has odd views but what can you expect from a woman who swears blind that she blew out a bit of her brain out once when she blew her nose.edit on 21-8-2012 by Suspiria because: (no reason given)
Hmm. Let me be clear here. Not Christians, but rather, and instead, Christianity the Organization is what I fight against.
That is EXACTLY my situation! Lol. My mother has the "boyish" haircut and even forced me to allow her to cut my hair until I finally started saying no at the age of 14. She would give me the bowl cut and none of the boys liked me and most of the other kids picked on me and called me a lesbian. I finally said enough was enough and started doing whatever I wanted with my own hair. And yes, I'm sorry if I came off as a selfish spoiled brat a few days ago. I was upset and needed to rant a bit. Sometimes you get a bit tired of hearing the same old things over and over but I AM greatful for everything my mother DOES do for me as it is... I'm just never going to conform to her ideas with homosexuality or cut my hair
Actually you have a problem with Judaism, which is what Christianity was founded upon.
Real Christians have a love-hate relationship toward the Jews. While believing the original Hebrew Scriptures to be the infallible and inspired word of God, they also believe the New Testament to be equally, though superceedingly, inspired. This includes Paul's words in which he calls Jews "the enemies of the Gospel." But Paul explains that this had to happen for God's acceptance to be extended to the Gentiles.
According to Rabbi, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews.
The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator.
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat.
Jews believe that Jesus was not the messiah.
Christians believe Jesus was the Messiah; Jews do not. Some think this is the only difference between Christianity and Judaism. What you should understand is that there is an entire theology that one must accept in order to believe as Christians do. Jews see this theology as diametrically opposite to what the Bible states.
So, as you can see, Christianity and Judaism are like oil and water, the two just won't mix. My Rabbi friend has told me many times that those who worship Jesus as a Messiah, or a God are, "in mortal danger of losing their souls." His words here, not mine.
