Family Drama, Crap!

I have a face book account, it helps me keep up with my friends & family out of state,.(I live 1000 mi. from them) like most FB ppl I post things I'm interested in. I happen to be a Wicca.  I posted a cute pic about Witches rights, and my niece's husband, on my DH's side of the family made a stupid sarcastic comment.

Yes. I am taking it for what it's worth. He knows nothing about the Pagan religion. He should research it as all the Christian Holidays came from the Pagans! He is the type of guy that thinks he knows everything, and always post political stuff, of which I don't reply to even if I don't agree, he lives for the argument.

What pissed me off was he made the comment in less than 2 seconds of my post, & his wife's brother made a post about Medicare, and killing all ppl once they reach the age of 60yrs old, including his parents! (funny NO ONE, made any comment about that from the family!) Except me. (I told this young man of 23, that he would feel differently if he was older)

THEN, this "nephew" sends me newspaper clippings thru FB about Ebay shutting down all the ppl that are selling anything related to Magikal witch type stuff, Tarot cards, etc.  WTH? He has no idea what I do or don't do, and if I did buy anything like that, I wouldn't buy it thru Ebay..LOL

thanks for letting me Vent!  Family, gotta love it!

 family, already posted about that one!  Only talk to my sister!  I have a neice who is wiccan and actually am fully aware holidays are pagan.  don't get me started on that one, I could start a whole new load of shit! lol, but I also steer clear of FB unless I"m looking for something specific!  sounds like he's just flat immature and maybe needs a little lesson, I"ll slap him for ya!

You can create groups and include certain people to be able to get certain status updates from you.

You can go to the sort option and omit his and other people's status updates. I have done that with people who post political crap.... I am fed up with many of the comments and this was my solution, that way I have not deleted them, but I don't have to put up with their crap.

Well, no I wouldn't cause its not my belief, but I most certainly would not be rude to you over it.. ppl all over the world have their systems in which they believe its what I believe God gave us as a choice in the word it says that he would want all his children to believe in him as the one true God!! However he does not force us !!

Many Christian's feel its their job to change your mind and others.. I don't think that way!! I think I can compel someone but I can't force them either.. but what I can do is be a friend not judge not be hurtful.. but love n kindness.. have to remember to that many Christian's are quite scared of pretty much everything!!! that's what I have found...

Theres always drama thou in all fams, hard to get away from it unless you totally cut off from them.. we are all entitled to what we believe in even if its wrong...

Yes, there is always something going on in someones family, I'm sure.

I do my best not to judge others, I don't push my religion on others, I don't hold any one else's religious choice against them. Most ppl fear the pagan religion mostly because they don't understand it nor have they even asked me about it or read up on it. As with any religion there are good ppl and bad ones.
