My mother is becoming / has become some hardcore christian who believes literally everything she finds on youtube. All that conspiracy theory crap about the illuminati and demons and stuff. Islam is from satan, rock music and dancing is satanic, etc. I tried to reason with her many times but its impossible. I wouldn't even mind if she was just some normal christian but this? Fuck. Anything I can do?
My mother was almost the same way until she became a fan of Glee. With those 2 gay guys on the show, it was a gateway drug into more progressive thinking for her. Try that.
OP, the same thing happened to my mom. She bought a laptop, started searching alien videos on youtube and later found out about the illuminati and how everything is a conspiracy, politicians are all reptilians who keep us from ascending to the 5th dimension and find God.
That was 5 years ago. It is now impossible to have a normal conversation with her, nobody can fucking stand her anymore. I've tried to use logic with her but she just tells me that I'm a brainwashed idiot who can't see the truth. However, she seems to be a much more positive person now. She had struggled with depression for a long time and this new "religion" seems to have given her hope for the future. While I miss my old, rational and intelligent mom, I'm glad she has a more positive outlook on life.
OP here and I honestly think this might be the best course of action to take. I see people like her everyday and am finally aware of their poison to the greater whole of society.
How do you propose I do it without getting caught though? I do not want to go to prison for this.
It sounds like she's so lonely, that she finally found SOMETHING to fill the void in her life, even if it's something that's retarded. Spend more time with her, you mong. The conspiracy theories will get annoying, but take her out to a magic show or a museum or something. I'm sure she'd appreciate it.
