Reminds me of when my cousin's kid kept asking "Which? Which? Which?" and she just turned to him and said very harshly "We don't talk about witches in this family"

This is a stupid position for a Christian to take. The unfaithful aren't going to heaven anyway, so enforcing religious ideas upon them that are contrary to earthly happiness won't benefit anyone.

My extended family is very religious. Aunt didn't let my mom give my cousin a dinosaur pencil case because dinosaurs are from Satan, or something like that.

I once yelled at a street preacher to shut up when I was around six and my very religious grandmother yelled at me.
