Mom is driving me nuts with her Christian privilege over here. And my brother is backing her up. I can't even watch Supernatural with them, it's that obnoxious.

I just.

Eggy, this has nothing to do with your above entry and I have no clue if maybe someone already told you, but...

Yesterday, I found out that Jacob (Yes, the Jacob) has been killed off for good. The cultists sacrificed him again. This apparently happened a few months ago, while a group of villagers went out on a desert mission. Apparently they were given three 'paths' to take during the mission and one of them would've led to saving Jacob, but... Well, nobody knew what any of the paths meant, of course, and so he was killed.

I feel so, so sad about this, but at the same time it's like "... Those kind of options are kind of epic actually".

Oh yeah, I think Akai told me a while back. Well she said Jacob was killed but we didn't really get into the details or anything.

I do like that the players had options but didn't know what would happen for each one, that's awesome. That's what makes a game engaging.

Now I'm kind of curious. Also late. But still curious. Feel free to ignore me.

Did she freak out because figures commonly associated with the Christian religion were used as a story-telling devices like...all the other religious figures they could reasonably get their hands on? Or that they weren't portrayed perfectly or something? That's where my mind went. I'm probably wrong.
bondsprofoundly: (fuck you man i am not doing SHIT)

Nope you're exactly right.

Mom got all pissed because the particular nuances concerning angels wasn't EXACTLY THE WAY SOUTHERN BAPTISTS SEE IT, ignoring the fact that it's all fucking SPECULATION ANYWAY because hey, Christianity is actually -shockingly- not fact. It's a religion, not a science, thus it's based on the concept of faith, or believing in something when there's no concrete proof that it even exists.

I have nothing wrong with faith. I have faith in lots of things, some spiritual and some not. But don't fucking look at a religion and expect everyone in the world to treat it as fact.

In addition to this, she casually disrespected another prominent religion -Islam- because it wasn't her religion. I gave her the example of the djinn episode and said "yeah jsyk they got the djinn all wrong too, so that you're not playing the victim card that some Christians love to play" and she brushed it off with a comment about Islam being a "fake religion" anyhow.

Yep.

Yyyyep.

...I don't even know what to say to that.

I mean, I was considering earlier during one of those sleep-deprived moments how I might conceivably handle having this conversation with at least my grandmother if my sister actually brings the show up to her, but every outcome of that I can imagine still results in my grandmother being cool with it. even my grandpa, who is very Christian and the kind of guy around whom we have to edge carefully around the the fact the only person I ever seriously considered dating was black, would handle it just fine. They would both understand that it is a show and also not fact. They'd be more upset, honestly, about the mishandling of Native American mythological and religious figures. Or would take the opportunity to tell a whole lot of stories about them which I'm rambling now.

Also, how is Islam a fake religion.

So, um. Yeah. I'm sorry.

(also, vaguely related to the topic, I was wondering what you thought about cross stitching since I won't have anything by your birthday but I can probably get something made by Christmas. I don't have to mail it if you don't want - I could take a picture or something.)

Basically all of that. Geez, Egg, it's like you should be a writer or something you just took all the good words.

(I'm still stitching something because I want to do Castiel, but I will also do that 8D)
