This is why I hate religion, it destroys families and make us hate each other …


Is “If people like you go to Heaven, Hell can’t be that bad” a good response?


Cut her off completely, and tell her why in long, exacting detail. Block her number, prevent contact. Lessons must be taught.

I hate to say it but she could be showing signs of mental illness. I don’t want to throw out a specific diagnosis but I know that memory loss can be very difficult and confusing which leads to depression and anxiety. Growing older is also very scary and when your in a state of fear your more susceptible to conspiracy theories and financial scams. This still does not give anybody the right to act like this. Just looking at potential cause for a drastic character change. I am sorry that your going through this I to have a mother that has always been prone to not “popular” ideas.
