The other day, Boomz and I were driving home from a weekend of visiting family and friends, when his mother called. Boomz' cousin C, had written on her mother's FB wall, saying:
"Since I can't be friends with any of my aunts and uncles on my facebook page I'll give it to them on my mother's......You are all disgusting excuses for people your thoughts, beliefs, opinions, and fundamentalist views are sick. It grosses me out that I am related to you people (except you Mom). Its too bad Grandma didn't choose abortion the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th times she got knocked up, seems those stem cells would have went to better use rather than give any of you jerks a brain and a mouth."
Most of Boomz' family (on his mother's side) are devout Baptists and nondenominational Protestants. C's branch of the family is Catholic, but obviously, C doesn't practice. C has an alcohol problem (even though she won't admit it), and has two children with two different men, both of whom she wasn't married to. She often accuses the rest of the family (especially my MIL) of pushing religion on her, even though we never really mention it in front of her. However, at Christmas she seemed pretty happy, and wasn't as belligerent as she usually is! We seriously have no idea what prompted such an attack on the rest of Boomz' family. It's really, really sad. I can't imagine harboring such hate inside! I love my in-laws; I don't understand how anybody can think such things about them.
After finding out about C's rant, Boomz wrote a beautiful, private note on FB to his family (including the branch that hates the rest of us) telling them how much he appreciates them. I sent my MIL a FB message telling her that I'm VERY happy she's alive and that she's a wonderful MIL. :) Now, my SIL is arranging a family prayer meeting in a couple of days. :)
Please pray for C and Boomz' family. C is obviously very wounded.
