Unhappy My sister is friends with a satanist. - January 16th 2017, 05:13 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Normally I'm pretty fine with people of different religions. I've gotten teased for being Catholic, but my friends have been deist, agnostic, full on atheists, and Hindu. Heck, my dad's protestant. But my sister's friend of five years is now a satanist. And not a typical one. He LITERALLY worships the devil and even said that Christians should be wiped off the planet. He supports persecution of any religion on his Facebook page.
Also, he isn't very nice to my family. My sister once used the word "c*nt" in a joking way (she curses a lot) and he told her to shove two fists up her p*ssy. And when I got upset with him he said, "I'm gay, it's fine." (I don't see how it connects , but okay.) Also, he's in the three-way relationship, got a sex change (male to female) and called my mom a whore that only had sex twice.
I at least TRY to be tolerant, but... When someone's literally saying to my sister that my family is evil for our beliefs, it tends to worry me. Half the stuff he says isn't true! He once said that we don't allow use of painkiller which is so wrong I don't even know where to start. I dunno... Am I being too overprotective? I have a bad tendency to do that. >_>

I would say this has less to do with satanism and more to do with their complete lack of knowledge on how to interact with other people. This person sounds like they are not being a friend to your sister. In fact, it doesn't sound like they know what being a friend is. Have you talked to your sister about this? How do they react when their "friend" says things like this in front of you and your family. She must know this would be upsetting?

I agree with Lizzie. I honestly think this has nothing to do with religion but has to do with him as a person. You seems like he doesn't know how to react to things or how to socialize correctly. It also sounds like he isn't being a good friend to your sister.

I would try and sit down with your sister and see how she feels about how he treats her. And you can voice your opinion to her. I would also advice your sister to sit down and talk with her friend if it bothers her.

I hope this helped a little bit
Your Friend,
Frankie

Like the others have said, it sounds like this person just isn't a good friend. What you're getting upset about is not his beliefs, but how he is acting towards you and your family. I believe it is completely justified in this sense. You are tolerant of his beliefs, but it's a different matter when he's saying rude and inconsiderate things to you and saying untrue things about you as well.

I think talking to your sister about her friendship with this person is a good idea as well. Overall, it is her decision on who she is friends with but there is nothing wrong with expressing your concerns. Tell her this person concerns you and is repeatedly saying rude things about you and your family. That is not how a friend acts.

Thank you for the replies! ^^ Yeah, I kinda got a little ahead of myself in that post. My sister said she doesn't exactly like him anymore but still has a, "I can change him" philosophy. Guess all I can do is hope that someday she can move on.

Sounds e he has anger issues, or possibly is secretly using drugs making him incorrigible with a short fuse.

Or because he's a tranny (sex change) and living in a non-accepting community (this assumption may be wrong) he's taken to being aggressive to shield himself from disapproval. (Could also expain why he chose a nonconformist religion. He deliberately chose it to irritate others.)

Just tell him to be careful because you don't want to cut yourself on all of that edge.
