This was about a week ago. Not a word was said about it. Still no idea where my stuff is.

Also, Jesus is ALL OVER MY ROOM now. How subtle of them.



The very last Jesus picture shown is of me casually chatting with Jesus at age 11.
Koalas have sharp claws but they are weak. They all small and fat and they be climing trees. I hope a storm just come while theyjust chilling up in the tree thinking they is hard and they're will all just fall off. They just break they neck and shit. When they fall they claws are going to fall off and they going to be crying like some little bitches.

I don't know, honestly. I mean, if they are, they're just being so damn subtle about it.

Look how ruggedly manly Jesus is in that one framed picture with all the children. Oh my! Are we sure that's not a picture of Hugh Jackman?

You should bring it up giving the impression that you believe that Jesus himself in his infinite narcissism placed those pictures in your house.

Maybe if you didn't have such loose morals your parents wouldn't have to do that!
Nun: Sister Augustine believes in things that aren't real.

Dr. House: Isn't it interesting... religious behaviour is so close to being crazy that we can't tell them apart.

Eve: Abortion is murder.
Dr. House: True. It's a life and you should end it.
Eve: Every life is sacred.
Dr. House: Come on. Talk to me. Don't quote me bumper stickers.
Eve: It's true.
Dr. House: It's meaningless.
Eve: It means that every life matters to God.
Dr. House: Not to me. Not to you. Judging by the number of natural disasters, not to God either.

I used to consider it so annoying that my parents would make me go to church and tried to shove religion down my throat. As I matured, I realized what a compliment it was that they cared enough about my well-being to do these things. I know that it's hard to look past the injustice of the whole thing right now, but it's only objects. Yes, they invaded your space and hid your possessions, but your parents are obviously worried about you and are pulling out all the stops in order to make sure that you are OK by their standards.

You may not agree with them, but they're saying that they love you in their own weird way. It sounds like you're handling it well, at least. You could try to tell them that you don't believe in Jesus (I don't know if you do or not) and ask them to respect your space, but I don't know that it will do anything but promote more confrontation.

My fiancee works with at-risk teens, and a lot of them don't have parents that give a shit what they do, legal or not. It may not feel like it, but you're lucky.

Jesus was definitely going in for a smooch with that little girl.

My parents don't hesitate to change a room as soon as somebody moves out. My sister's room was changed into a really nice guest room, my room was turned into a games/computer/storage room, and my brother has been shifted down to the basement for his room to be turned into a television room.

I currently sleep in the guest room, but I'm not allowed to keep anything that is mine in there, in case we suddenly have guests, in which case I will sleep on the couch or on the floor of the basement, depending on the guest.

My mom tells me every couple of weeks how she can't wait for me to move out so she can decorate a new room how she wants.

Anyway, that's only tangentially related. Basically jimmy has it right, even if it is a little weird to surround you with images of Jesus. If you absolutely have to bring it up (which will spark confrontation in horrible ways regardless), you could also play the "Jesus wants me to be who I am" angle. This comes from when I was cleaning out some closets earlier this spring, and found some old religion homework. "Jesus' bottom line to you is keep your eye on the prize and your soul on the goal" which is from the book of Fridge Magnets 1:4 or something and other stuff like that.

But I'm confused - where did all this come from? Why did they empty your room? Did I miss a thread?

This thread is really, really sad.

I hope you grew the stones to confront your parents about this, because if you didn't, you can fully expect this kind of treatment to continue. By remaining passive, you only reinforced their position, which, unfortunately for you, is on the side of God and Jesus, therefore righteous and just.

Unless she plans to cut off ties completely, not even moving out will help. Think of the kind of shenanigans they could pull for her wedding.

Why is this not a valid viewpoint for her parents? Why should they not be able to influence the way in which their child grows up? It's annoying that anything having to do with religion is automatically scorned by some board members, simply because they don't believe. Oddly enough, these are the ones whose names will likely show up the most when you search for the word "tolerance" on the site. Your stereotyping of all religious people is just as bad as the racism/sexism/homophobia that you fly the equality banner against every day.

It depends on how you define the act of influencing someone. I'm all for influencing people. I am always trying to influence people to watch movies I like and listen to music I like and read books I like. However, I do not litter my friends' rooms with pictures of Dostoevsky and Evil Dead posters as a means of trying to influence them into liking the things I like. I also do not force someone to endure things that I like, if they do not voluntarily submit to giving it a chance. That's where I draw the line.

Influence your children to accept Jesus all you like, but do not put them in a position where they are essentially forced to accept it by threat of eviction or being disowned. That's just fucked up.

I gather that JD didn't want Jesus paraphernalia littering her room and her possessions hidden. Yet her parents decided to exploit their power over her as a means of thrusting religion upon her, forcibly. Why should I tolerate this kind of action? And don't tell me that it's their house, therefore their rules, because that's bullshit.

I absolutely believe that it's heavy handed and misguided, but you're making her parents out to be bad people, which is a theory I don't subscribe to. You may see religious zealots smothering a potential convert, but what I see are two parents who are obviously VERY concerned about their child and feel like they have to resort to extreme measures. I can sympathize with that, because it's what my parents have had to go through with almost all of their children (my sister being the exception).

It's hard on my dad, knowing that organized religion just isn't for us, and they tried their hardest. I can only imagine what it's like to believe that your own children are going to hell.

How is that bullshit? I mean...they do own the place. Unless jd's paying rent (which I don't think she is but I could be wrong), it's their property and they can do with it what they wish.
