Personal religious trauma

My oldest brother is gay. He was outside of a pride festival and was attacked by a small group of queer hating Jesus lovers. They beat him so bad he was in the hospital for a few days.

Our mother continued to make him hide his gayness from our Catholic grandmother all the way up until she died.

My mother is on her third marriage and had me with another guy out of wedlock which according to the Bible that she professes so dearly, calls her an adulterous whore. But she still clings to the bible. She's so worried about her reputation that she doesn't care who she affects.

My older brother doesn't have a relationship with his dad and his mom is ashamed of him. How messed up do you think he is right now?

My mom deleted me on social media because she didn't want her connections to see what I was saying about the God of the bible. As she put it, "the evil stuff I was saying about her God". All that I was doing was telling Bible stories. If those are evil, it's not my fault. I'm standing up against an evil that I see affecting humanity.

She chooses her image over her own family.

So now I don't talk to any of my family because of my mother. My mother who would sell out her own family if it would help her image.

She's recently started a new business on Christian principles even though she's completely going against everything the Bible stands for.

If I could give her one verse right now to read from the bible, it would be Hebrews 10:26.

✝ Hebrews 10:26 "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,"

She knew after divorcing the first husband that it was wrong. She knew after the second husband that she was wrong. She promotes a religion that doesn't even welcome her anymore.

As Jesus said, "why do you call me Lord and not keep my commandments?"

I miss my mother but I think I've always never known my mother until recently.

At this point, I don't think I would piss on her if she was on fire.

People are always getting hurt by christianity, but it's never anyone's fault.
