Today’s sermon was about controlling your kids by the way they said putting electronic gadgets in their room is wrong.
Was reading a friend’s blog about this and felt ABSOLUTELY disgusted. Sickened. This, from a so-called Christian? It smacks of a control freak to me as well as someone who doesn’t believe that people can think for themselves.
This is something that’s very often by some pastors and priests in an attempt to seem “Holy” and very “Faithful.” It sickens me, because these priests are often hypocrites. For them… it seems that there’s a subtle idea that you are ALWAYS sinful, you are ALWAYS guilty, and you MUST shun society and live ONLY with the Chosen People to gain salvation. For them, associating with something THEY disapprove is tantamount with associating with the devil.
What the heck is with that? Why can’t these people allow others to make their own decisions? It isn’t just the Christians that are doin this; EVERY religion has it. And they sicken me.
It’s a relationship between YOU and Him/Her/Whatever you choose to call them. WHY should anyone else interfere?
Would you try to force your brother to behave the way YOU want him to be?
This is the reason why I don’t like going to church for Mass. Yes, it’s comforting, but it also makes me uneasy. I’d rather got to the prayer room and simply pray.
