You guys make me crack up.
//: Ok, I really don't know how many times I have to tell this, but this is all of my opinion. If you respond with something stupid that reguards of my opinion (you know what I mean), your a freakin retard: //
Ok, first I would like to admit that I may every once in a while freak out because people are bashing Mormons, it's just how I've responded pretty much my whole life. But it really depends on what your putting down a lot. Sometimes, like this I don't care or I can relate.
Honestly, I believe those Mormons who always seem like they have no problems, never seem sad about anything and try to convert you as soon as you take 2 steps into their house, have no life. Period. In fact, those people drive me insaine. You know why? Because life isn't like that. Sure we believe that we can try to be our own little "missionaries" and tell others about our religion, but you sooo don't need to shove it in their face. I personally think, that if they don't seem interusted in the first few moments, you need to quit. And the people should decide their interust. If they ask, then go ahead and tell them. And for them to tell the basic parts, no the whole Book of Mormon. To be honest, those people creep me out too. This also ties in with the other things that the image of the familys of the Church are ok; wealthy, happily married, have like 100 kids, teach goody-two-shoe properites, wife stays home to clean and makes cassaroles for dinner and the husband works on weekdays 9-5, the kids get straight A's and are gonna get scholarships (maybe even hopefully to BYU), for Sunday they are quiet doing nothing and wear nice clothes. Suprised or not suprised, that's not even CLOSE to how my life is. And I really hate it when people assume thats how it all it. Yeah, that's how most Mormons are. But some Mormon families do have hard times. I believe that those "perfect" familys are not teaching all the nessesary principals for the kids--I've seen it. Once those kids hit the real world, they won't know what hit them and they'll be lost. Before you know it, they'll end up somewhere where no one wants them to be, and you really don't know what that is. For example, some of my cousins are basically blocked from stuff like new music, television, knowing the news of our world, knowing what porn is, knowing what some people do for a living, how bad people can live and how not easy the world is. I know that since their mothers and fathers don't show/teach them that, that they are gonna have the roughest time of their lives. I'm not saying that I know every aspect there is out there, I'm just saying that I know how hard people can live, I know what people can do, I've seen heavy stuff, and I'm not expecting the best and the easiest of when I grow up. Like, my family is pretty much the exact opposite of the average Mormon family. My parents are divorced, that's very discouraged and shunned in the church. But I feel that they don't understand that divorce is there for a reason, it's very much needed in my case. When my parents were married, my dad pysically and emotionally abused my mom and my sisters and I. My dad still even "brain washes" by sisters. I kind of was once but then I kinda figured out what my dad was doing. It still seems that no one can understand that. Another thing is that my mom got married again. Not seen by others. And now my mom and my stepdad are "inactive" meaning that they don't go to church anymore. That automatically made both of them the black sheeps of their family. My dad was already the black sheep. So all of my parents are black sheeps. All 3 of my parents work, even my mom. And they really work their butt off just to pay the bills. Sometimes I can't figure out how I get somethings. Another is that we HARDLY EVER have cassarole. Last time I had it was months maybe even a year ago. I miss it though.
But about every night we have fast food. Which is ok, luckily I've been blessed with the liking of fast food. But I really don't have all that too many options anymore for it but I'm still good with it. Either way, I would have had to learn to like it. Ok, then theirs my stupid dad. I hate him. Literally. He's the only person I hate. You thought I hated Rocky Anderson and Bill Clinton and all those stupid freaks. Well, I really don't all that much. But the most part is because I've never met them. I've met my dad, and he's a jerk. He can never even try to get along with my parents and is a big jerk about paying child support. He thinks my mom is squeezing the juice out of him but OMG, it's the law! Really, and the thing is that we are his daughters. I hate him so much that when I am 18 and I'm an adult, I'm never ever seeing him again. Girls my age when we go to church and sunday school, they always say they dream of their wedding day and their father walking down the aisle, not me. That's sometime that the people of the church would "never" do. Speaking of getting married, we believe that everyone needs to get married and be married eternally sealed together in the temple. (You may of seen them, no?) Me, I really, really, REALLY don't want to get married. Really. I could never tell anyone that though because they'd shun me or be rude or something. And the ones I have, have said "Oh, you'll find someone" or "Just watch, it will happen" or "What? Don't say that". But it's true. I would like to have the single life. I don't want kids or nothing. I mean, I love men and kids, don't get me wrong on that. And I believe in soul mates (I've seen it, can't deny it) but it's just not for me. And I am attracted to older men, not so much of my age. I'm not sure I could really like a guy around my age. But you have to do that. But you can't tell anyone that.
So where are we? Man, I think I've gone off topic and way too far.
Just to sum it up, people like that, arn't real. They've got to be robots or something like Edward Scissorhand's lost cousin.
