But, I did it anyway.
What do an agnostic, Wiccan, and cult member have in common?
They are all part of the same happy family.
I am pretty sure I just lost one of my sisters.
But, that's how it goes.
I was raised in a family that just ignored the monkey in the room.
So what if he be flinging poo?
As long as you ignore it,
it's not really there.
But, eventually the shit starts to pile up and smell.
I grew up and realized ignoring was not my style.
I talked to my sister about her involvement with God's Church.
Also known as, Church of God- Preparing for the Kingdom of God.
It didn't seem to be a good place to be.
Any church that requires tithing to be a member is not good.
And than they teach the members that once they give the tithe it doesn't matter where it goes.
Cause, it's for God.
Or Mediterranean cruises or BMWs.
Whatever- it's all good.
Than after the first talk I let it go.
After that little things changed.
No calls or doing things on Saturday.
Personal things in her relationships changed.
I let that go.
Than, I found out about the head of the church being charged with tax evasion.
Can you say too much poo flinging?
So, I decided I was going to talk to her more.
Send court transcripts to her.
It didn't matter.
And now she says I am attacking her religious beliefs and someday she hopes I will see what she sees.
So, I am now ragging on the church leader and the leader of the Worldwide Church of God - which is where COG-PKG came from.
I got mad and told her they were full of shit.
Well, come on.
They both prophesied a lot of things that didn't happen, but I'm the bad one.
I told her a while back that she was going to lose people over this and she said I was wrong.
I am supposed to just be OK with everything.
All of it is my problem.
I knew how things could turn out if I said something.
But, in the end, I think I'd have lost her anyway.
I had to try.
