I saw this on my facebook feed just a few minutes ago and I am kind of disappointed. No, not because it’s some religious propagation of laughable superstition, but because this picture was reposted on my own mother’s facebook wall. With this post, she has implied that she chooses her god over her own family and friends. She chooses a mere superstitious concept that may or may not even be true over the people she loves and cares about; people she KNOWS to be real. I know she has a right to believe in whatever she wishes to believe in, but people shouldn’t go propagating this kind of crap on the internet. It’s insulting and hurtful to those who do not share the belief. I’m sure that she doesn’t really believe that post to its full extent, but it’s certainly not a good thing to post where family members can see it and maybe interpret it a specific way.
I feel a bit insulted as well. Have you spoken to mom about it, because you probably should.
