The ultimate form of an abusive relationship, it is one that as long as you believe it you are never able to get away, never able to leave, never able to distance yourself from that judgement.
I’ve seen this before, but I can’t not re-blog it because the words are so true to the thinking of so many Christians. How can the parallels get any clearer?
The problem is that many people don’t recognize an abusive relationship when they see it, and certainly not when they’re in it.
Had this as a double whammy as a kid - from the leadership of the church and from my mother.
Wait a fucking second are we REALLY comparing an abusive relationship to the concept of religion? Using a frightened woman as an image?
WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT THIS WAS EVEN REMOTELY OKAY.
as soon as i saw this i thought it was really fucked up.
not a good comparison. at. all.
I completely disagree. The comparison between an unhealthy, insidiously scary relationship and how religions as a whole function is incredibly apt. I don’t think the frightened woman was necessary to get the point across, however.
