My sister is a bitch - December 20th 2010, 10:34 AM

Hey.
So, I have an older sister who is 5 years older than me. She's extremely racist, homophobic, thinks her way is always the right way, and always tries to tell me what to do.

Her views of the world make me so sick. I have plenty of gay and bisexual friends and friends from other nationalites. Even my boyfriend is bi. She always makes these stupid comments about how whites should rule, and how Obama should never have been made president of the US. She says my friends who are homosexual need to 'turn straight' now or else they will burn in hell. She comes into my room and looks through it, telling me to clean up stuff and shit like that.

The thing that I hate most is she never used to be like this. One day a friend started getting her to go to church, and since then she believes all the things she does are 'God's will'. What a load of crap.

If she is Christian, simply tell her passages from the bible where her behaviour is unrighteous. This does work because she cannot easily ignore what you say as it applies to her so you can tell her to bugger off using these. A commonly used one is:

"If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

"The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. " (Galatians 5:19-21)



Bold and underline are my emphasis. There are many other passages that are like this and remind her jesus was about kindness, compassion to others and (in theory despite contradictions) non-violent. If you go at her this way, it's something she'll be hard-pressed to ignore unless she hasn't a clue of what christianity is. Get her to give you some passages supporting her view. The anti-homosexuality views aren't supported in the bible so if she quotes Leviticus 18:22, that only applies to homosexual sex. Other passages forbid homosexuality since it involves lust but then again, so does heterosexuality. Passages regarding how one man should be together with a woman for marriage is a relatively out-of-date view as it states men and women should be together only in marriage where they can be sexual and whatnot. It doesn't support dating at all, which makes it a very old-fashioned view. If she dates someone else, you can use this against her.


You could also mention things such as she is not god, thus she cannot judge someone and say whether they'll be off to heaven or hell.


I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.
