The Entitled, Insensitive Comments Left by Entitled Christian Mothers, and the Men Who Support Them, Under the Post ‘Don’t Ask Moms To Stand In Church This Sunday (Mother’s Day)’
As of 2018, the snotty entitlement and insensitivity of some mothers – and Christian men who support them – continues.
I’ve been blogging about this topic for a few years now on this blog. It makes me sad to see this still going on.
DefendTheSheep (person on Twitter) tweeted out a link to this reasonable essay imploring Christians to be more sensitive towards those who find the Mother’s Day holiday painful. Link to that:
My problem is not with the essay itself.
As a matter of fact, I encourage you to click the link above to visit the page and read it.
My problem was with some of the hideous comments various people left below the page.
Some of the comments were just incredibly insensitive or very mistaken about why some people find Mother’s Day – especially when it’s celebrated during church services – to be hurtful or stressful.
Christians often like to teach that parenthood and marriage are necessary to make people more giving and loving and compassionate, but that is not so. The married parents leaving comments under blog posts such as the one I am discussing here are very selfish and entitled – being parents has done nothing to make them more loving, caring, or empathetic.
