So I just got back in contact with my religious bigot mother...
After 6 years of not contacting her...

And I found out my mum is one of the most bigoted people on the planet. She rivals the crazy right-wing nutjobs in America.

She actually said that the Australian Labour Party are practically Communist.

I found out she was getting my old neighbours from when I was growing up to sign a petition to ban gay marriage, spouting some crap about marriage being between a man and a woman.

We had a state election and she was also a vocal supporter of the rise up australia party. http://riseupaustraliaparty.com/

To top it off she now works for a church.

She lives in a house without electricity which has burnt floorboards because of religious burning rituals where she burnt away items from my childhood, like photos of my dad and me, etc..

She is a sick twisted individual and I'm embarrassed to have a mother like that.

I have already gone through the grieving process regarding her so she is basically already dead as far as I am concerned. That is just her body still living. Her mind and anything that counts died a long time ago.

I don't know why but every time I talk to her I feel like breaking something. Not good.

Just reminding myself why I don't talk to her.

You're right, she's a fuckin' loony. I can easily understand why you'd cut contact of a poisonous creature like that.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Sorry to hear. Sad

All I can offer is an electronic shoulder.

Glad you've made it out/away.

May your current life/affairs be going swell.

Much cheers to all.

Maybe you'll find (or have ?) some "different mom(s)" to fill that role for you, (as in "adopted moms", if you're really fortunate. Sometimes you have to go back and be (very briefly reminded) why it was exactly you found something so totally unacceptable, (sort of like going to church and being reminded why it was some of us left all the bullshit behind ... as in "oh yeah, this crap, ... hasn't changed a bit") and it cements your current place, and helps you to move on.

I had a few "extra grannies" that helped a lot when my real one died. I couldn't imagine life without them. Doesn't make a bit of difference that we "adopted" each other. You need a mom. You don't need the one you got.

It's sometimes difficult to explain to people why you have to cut your mother from your life - at least I sure ran into that a lot. But, the truth of the matter is that I am much better off without mine and probably would have been better still if I had cut ties long before I did.

On the odd occasion when there is contact my choice is always proven to be the right one. I wish my sister could bring herself to make the break. Momzilla still tears her up but she is an adult and has to decide for herself.

I am sorry about your situation, but I understand. Heart

Sorry to hear this...
I hope for their sake you don't have any younger siblings.
Don't break any of your stuff and keep your distance.

No shame in removing family members from your life when necessary. Looks like you made the right choice, and it can't have been easy. I hope you can continue to block contact. Family is what you make it I think.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Deep Thought, you shouldn't be embarrassed. You had no control about your parentage. If your child turned out that way, it would be another story.

As for talking to her, don't. There isn't anything she can provide, that you can't get from people you choose to associate with.
