I needed to post here to vent. Because, the person I really want to give a piece of my mind to is an elder and my, sometimes, self-righteous brother. Twice in my presence, he brought up cases of sisters marrying unbelievers and how they should be "marked" because of marrying outside the "truth".
But, guess what, a member of his wife's family married an elder who threatened her life and is controlling and verbally abusive. I just want to say well at least she married an elder and isn't marked. huh. There are so many cases of even older sisters marrying so-called brothers and it turns out to be a disaster. And I know of sisters who married unbelievers who are good men.
I know what it's like to be a single sister and feeling undesirable and untouchable. Why punish someone just because she found someone to love. It's another case of technical hypocrisy.
I know a pedophile who just got reinstated. Is he being marked in anyway? He should be. He is a danger to all the little girls in the hall he attends. But a lonely, sister who finally found happiness by marrying a "worldy" man, what kind of danger is she to anyone. I guess they just want to make an example out of her , so other sisters don't get any ideas for living their own life.
Okay, thanks, rant over. Feel better.
