A 19-year-old man lived with his parents, his mother being very religious and his dad being agnostic. Despite leaning towards agnosticism and atheism like his father, the man’s mother would often try to force her religion upon him. He usually respectfully stayed out of her beliefs, but on one recent occasion, it was impossible to not become involved.
A Background of Discord
The man’s parents had clashed over religious matters in the past, almost leading to divorce. Despite this, they had generally been great parents to him, with religion being the sole point of contention.
A Religious Mom
The man’s mother had always tried hard to involve her son in religion. “She is really traditional and tries to get me to come to church all the time”, he wrote. “My Dad said that the moment I stopped wanting to go, I could. So when I was 7 I said I didn’t want to go back and I never stepped into another church.”
Dad Was Away
One week, the man’s dad had gone away for a few days to visit his parents, leaving the young man alone with his mother. Considering his dad’s absence, the man feared that his mom was going to use this opportunity to bond with him one-on-one over religion.
A Surprise Breakfast Gathering
One morning, as the man prepared breakfast, he discovered a group of people in his living room. His mom invited him to join, making it clear that this was an invitation to partake in a religious gathering. His suspicions had been correct, much to his dismay.
A Resolute Response
The man declined the invitation, citing his long-standing discomfort with organized religion. He believed that his mom should have known by now not to ask in the first place, although he still wasn’t surprised by her persistence.
An Unwelcome Conversation
However, this would not be the last of the religious requests. “When I brought the dishes back down from breakfast, one of the women followed me into the kitchen”, the man recounted. “She said her name was Mary and she wanted to talk to me. She said I made my mom really sad saying no like that and not being supportive.”
A Firm Rebuttal
The man stood his ground, firmly asserting his disinterest in religion and how his mother was fully aware of this. He told Mary to mind her own business, and she became visibly upset.
The mom, upon entering the kitchen and observing the tension, asked for an explanation. Mary accused the young man of rudeness, to which he countered, claiming that Mary had been rude first by being so nosey.
A Request to Listen
Despite the young man’s firm stance, his mother chimed in to defend Mary. She told her son that it would have been polite if he had just listened to Mary for a few minutes, instead of snapping at her.
The Final Exchange
Despite the mother’s attempt to mediate, the young man refused to engage further. He snapped, shouting, “I don’t care! Stop asking me to be a Christian! I am never going to be, and that’s that!”
Confessing His Sins
Despite being frustrated by his mother and her friend, the young man couldn’t deny acting rudely. He confessed his guilt online to a community group, asking them whether he had acted heartlessly. “Nope – religious people need to learn to not be pushy”, one reader defended. “Mom has been pushy, and frankly Mary was sticking her nose in business that isn’t any of hers.”
He Did Nothing Wrong
The man was relieved to discover that everyone took his side. “You did nothing wrong – as you said, your mom already knew the answer and never should have asked”, another reader defended. “Furthermore, the absolute gall of Mary trying to guilt you into her religion is inexcusable, and had it been me, she would’ve found out the true definition of “rude.”
However, the man was somewhat disheartened to discover that people agreed with his initial theory. “Your mom purposely planned on using these women to gang up on you while your dad is gone”, one commenter wrote. “That’s messed up, dishonest, and kinda creepy.”
