RE: Mentally unstable family?
You're in a shitty situation. There is no magic answer to make everything right. If there were you wouldn't be here right now. You would've already implemented it. If your mother is going to continue to be in contact with you and your family she will have to know at some point I think. You will have to either blame the lack of your children's church attendance on their father, or you will have to just come clean. It's a bitter pill to swallow, but you don't have many options, I fear. I would just suggest telling her in the gentlest way possible and make you explanation clear. Explain fully what your beliefs are, why you have them and also explain you are still the same person you have always been. That's my advice anyhow. Good luck, and congratulations on your academic achievements!

RE: Mentally unstable family?
If your convictions are as strong as they seem, over time you will not be able to keep this a secret.

One of the best pieces of advice that anyone ever gave me was "Women are a lot tougher than you can ever imagine, they are tougher than you are pal." Turned out to be true.

Last thing, remember that the Messianic complex is inherent in the christian faith. Be highly critical of any voice telling you that your have to spend your whole life suffering for the greater good of others. IMHO.

Good luck.

Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're an incredible slouch.

Martin Luther was the "father" of two movements - The Reformation and Nazism.

You realize that she is unstable and if it wasn't this thing it would simply be another? It has nothing to do with you, it has to do with the fact that her religion keeps her from seeing a doctor.

Put the blame where it belongs!
